The Divine Son - Righteousness of God
Through Jesus Christ, we have been granted the righteousness of God. The Bible teaches that we are not only identified with Christ, but that he is fully identified with us. Our complete identification with Adam has been broken, and we are fully identified with Christ. Christ also fully identified with our sins, and astonishingly he became our sin. So that on the cross Christ became sin for us, accepted the punishment that was due sin, and delivered us from all of our moral failures.
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were entreating through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him (2 Cor 5:20-21)
Therefore, we should always act as friends of God. That is what Paul states in Second Corinthians 5:20. Christians of all people should continually act as those who have been reconciled to God through Christ who became sin for us. Such an action on his part more than deserves friendship with God on our part.
