What Is Substitution ?

substitutionSurely there is no term more easy to understand or grasp, (even for a child), than that of substitution.

If we use the example of the sports field. In the game of soccer, when one person goes off the field, (whether for tactical reasons or because of injury) he is replaced by a substitute.

When we come to look at the Subtitutionary Death of the Lord Jesus Christ, as contained in the Word of God, we see a similar thought, but on a much nobler and higher scale.

The Lord Jesus Christ Died on the Cross, as a substitute for the sinner. The sinner who is convicted of sin, who repents, and calls on the Lord Jesus Christ  to save him or her, when they look by faith to the Lord Jesus Christ, as their substitute, they are saved, and will not suffer the eternal Wrath of God in hell. Why ? Because the Lord Jesus took the punishment of their sin upon Himself upon the Cross. He suffered the agony  that he or she deserved, and thus became their substitute.

The greatest, grandest, deepest, most unfathomable theological statement can be summed up in the following four words:

"Jesus Died For Me.

That's Substitution !  And that's Amazing Love !

"Amazing Love, how can it be ?
That Thou, My God, should die for me.

"I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, Wo loved me, and gave Hmself for me. (Galatians 2:20)

"Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree. (Galatians 3:13)
