Christ For(med) Me

This was doodled last October 29–Start in the middle with Jesus and read out.  The whole concept is a mystery to me that I can’t even fathom so I won’t even try to speak to it.  Oswald Chambers put it this way,

The modern view of the death of Jesus is that He died for our sins out of sympathy for us.  Yet the New Testament view is that He took our sin on Himself not because of sympathy, but because of His identification with us.  He was “made . . . to be sin . . .” . . . We are acceptable to God not because we have obeyed, nor because we have promised to give up things, but because of the death of Christ, and for no other reason. . .The substitution which is taught in the New Testament is twofold–“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”  The teaching is not Christ for me unless I am determined to have Christ formed in me.  (see Galatians 4:19)

Start in the center . . . let Jesus work it out in you.
