He Made Him To Be Sin, Part 2 2 Cor. 5:21

August 5, 2018 Speaker: Andrew McNeill Series: Associate Pastors

Topic: Associate Pastors Passage: 2 Corinthians 5:21–5:21

Discussion Questions


  1. Describe in your own words everything that was taking place while Jesus was on the cross.
  2. What does it mean that the Father “made him (Jesus) to be sin”? Did Jesus become sinful? Did he stop being God for a moment on the cross?
  3. What is one aspect of salvation that causes you to be amazed at God?
  4. What does it mean that we “become the righteousness of God”? What impact does this truth have on how you think and how you live?
  5. List as many blessings as you can that Jesus achieved for you in salvation. (Examples: forgiveness of sin, reconciliation with the Father)
  6. How do the truths of the gospel change how you treat those you live with or work with?
  7. If you are willing, share a specific situation this week where you reminded yourself of gospel truth. Think of a time in this coming week where you know you might need to remind yourself of the truth. Rehearse what you will say to yourself in that moment. (Example 1: I know that when “x” scenario happens I will feel like God is against me. When that happens I will remind myself that the Father initiated the plan of salvation (2 Cor. 5:21, Eph. 1:3-5) and is using all his attributes to work all things for my eternal good; that is, to make me like Jesus (Rom. 8:28-29). I will remind myself that God demonstrated his love for me while I was still fighting against him (Romans 5:6). I will remind myself that I deserve nothing better than eternal punishment from God and that he is continually showering mercy and grace on me (Eph. 2:1-4). I will remind myself that because of what happened on the cross, God is now for me, always (2 Cor. 5:18).)
