Such a Deal!

For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. (2 Corinthians 5:21)

Advertisers are constantly trying to get our attention by floating some new “deal of the century” before our eyes.  “Brand new big screen TV for $299!”  “Trade in your old electronics for a deal on a new phone!” “Sell us your old clunker and buy a new Tessla!”

Some of these deals are probably too good to be true.  Other deals are just what they promise, an amazing offer you just can’t pass up.

God has made us such a deal.  It’s so incredible, that some folks think it’s too good to be true.  God promises to take all our sin and exchange it for the righteousness of Christ.  This deal has already been made, so all you have to do is accept it.  God gets all your guilt, shame, and sin, and you are credited for all the good things that Jesus has ever done.  Could you pass up such a deal?

When I come across one of those amazing deals that are just as good as they promise, I find myself calling, texting, or emailing some of my friends to get them in on the deal while it lasts.  The great offer that God has made us is that kind of “deal”.  Whether it’s bringing the offer straight to our friends, inviting them to church, or bringing them to the Harvest Crusade, share the goodness!
