Living in the Tension

This is the wonderful exchange 

This is the wonderful exchange which, out of his measureless benevolence, He has made with us, that ,by His dissent to earth, He has prepared and ascent to heaven for us: that, by taking on our morality, He has conferred His immortality upon us: that, accepting our weaknesses, He has strengthened by His power: that, receiving our poverty unto Himself, He has transferred His wealth to us: that, taking the weight of our inequity upon Himself (which oppressed us),He has clothed as with His righteousness.”

This has become known as the great or wonderful or glorious exchange - that he became what we are that we might become as he is.”
