3. For example: Father because you said in your word that Jesus became sin so that I could be made righteous, then I believe I am the righteousness of God in Him. I may not feel like it but You said it so I believe it.
4. When you receive Jesus as your Lord, you are receiving all that He did for you.

Conclusion

Jesus made the exchange and Jesus paid the price. It is now up to you. God intended in the very beginning that His family would be blessed. God never intended His children to live in sin, sickness and poverty. God created us to be righteous, healthy and wealthy in every area of our lives. When Adam sinned he gave over to satan authority in our lives. Thus, sin, sickness, and poverty came. John 10:10 says that satan comes to steal, kill, and destroy. Sin, sickness and poverty fits into these categories. Jesus said He came to give you life and life more abundantly. Abundant life is one of righteousness, health and prosperity. Jesus paid the price for your righteousness by becoming sin and suffering its penalty. He paid the price for your health by suffering all your sickness and disease. He paid the price for your prosperity, by suffering your poverty. Romans 10:9 tell you that when you receive Jesus as your Lord, you shall be saved. The Greek word translated saved includes righteousness, health, and prosperity. Jesus paid the price for you to walk in total victory, in every area of your life. He paid the highest price ever required of any man, His life. He gave you all He is and all he has in exchange for all you are and all you have. Greater Love has no man than this, that a man lay down His life for his friends. Jesus loves you, receive Him now.

Prayer

Father, in the name of Jesus I ask you to forgive me for all my sin. I believe you raised Jesus from the dead for me. Jesus I receive you as my Lord, and ask you now to come into my life. Make me the person you want me to be. I receive you Jesus and all you did for me. I believe that because of your death, burial, and resurrection, I am now the righteousness of God, I am healed, and I am prosperous in every area of my life. Thank you Jesus, I am now yours and you are mine, we are one.
