Title: He Became Us on the Cross: Understanding the Depth of God’s Love

Scripture Reading: 2 Corinthians 5:21 (NIV) – “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”

Message :

The crucifixion of Jesus Christ is a cornerstone of the Christian faith, marking the ultimate act of love and sacrifice. Yet, it is not merely a historical event; it is a profound demonstration of God’s solidarity with humanity. In this devotional, let’s explore the profound truth that Jesus, the Son of God, became one of us on the cross, experiencing our pain, suffering, and ultimately offering redemption through His death.


Reflect on the weight of 2 Corinthians 5:21 and the profound truth it reveals about Jesus becoming sin for us on the cross. Jesus, who knew no sin, willingly took upon Himself the sins of the world, bearing the full weight of humanity’s transgressions. In doing so, He experienced the depths of our brokenness and separation from God, offering Himself as the perfect sacrifice for our sins.

The concept of Jesus becoming us on the cross goes beyond mere theological doctrine; it speaks to the depth of God’s love and His desire to reconcile humanity to Himself. Jesus didn’t just stand apart from our suffering; He entered into it fully, identifying with our humanity in every way. He knows what it’s like to experience pain, rejection, and despair, yet He did so without sin, demonstrating His perfect love and obedience to the Father.

The significance of Jesus becoming us on the cross is twofold: first, it reveals the depth of God’s love for us. Despite our sinfulness and unworthiness, God was willing to sacrifice His Son to save us, demonstrating His unending love and grace. Second, it offers us hope and assurance of salvation. Through Jesus’ sacrifice, we are made righteous before God, restored to right relationship with Him, and given the promise of eternal life.

As we reflect on the cross, may we never cease to marvel at the wonder of God’s love displayed in Jesus’ sacrifice. May we respond with gratitude and worship, allowing the reality of His love to transform our lives and compel us to share this message of redemption with others.


Heavenly Father, we are humbled by the depth of Your love displayed on the cross through Jesus Christ. Thank You for becoming one of us, for bearing our sins, and offering us redemption and eternal life. Help us to grasp the magnitude of Your love and to live in light of the sacrifice Jesus made for us. May His example inspire us to love others sacrificially and to share the message of salvation with the world. In Jesus’ name, amen.

  1. Hebrews 4:15-16 – “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
  2. Philippians 2:5-8 – “In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross!”
