First, we need to understand the meaning of the Great Cross Exchange.
The Cross, the New Covenant was cut and an important exchange took place. Jesus took our sin and all the bad we deserved, so that we could have all His good!
Jesus was perfectly good. He obeyed all of God's laws completely. So He deserved all God's blessings. We were sinners. We couldn't obey God's laws completely. And we deserved punishment and death, so we can have all of His blessings.

Whenever I read this verse, I always imagine myself trying a new flavor of ice cream. The moment of that first bite and then sweetness and creaminess comes right after. A burst of wonderful flavors in every spoonful, I could taste chocolate chips, almonds, cookie dough. Oh yes! What a pleasure to my palette!

You know how to remember the promises You've made to Your people. Your concern covers all what it takes for You-- Your Son, Jesus Christ bears the consequences of our sins just to complete the promise You've made to us!
He died and rose again; now, it's Complete!

Proverbs 17:17 - "A friend love at all times, a brother is born in adversity"
"Friendship should be the foundation of a long and sweet relationship. Just as who Jesus is to us. In no accident time, He found us. He want to offer friendship to us. If we will only give it a try to His offer. Our trust, our commitment and our faith will be fully developed, if we will take the offer of Friendship, He is offering us. Sooner or later, this friendship will become a RELATIONSHIP TO HIM!"
