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.

A burst of wonderful flavors in every spoonful, I could taste chocolate chips, almonds, cookie dough. Oh yes! What a pleasure to my palette! Then a signal to my brain will be sent saying "This is really good! I will definitely buy again!" This scenario is the simplest way I could express how this verse means, well, generally speaking.
