Imputation means adding or crediting something to your account. For example, if I give you money, I’m adding or imputing to your bank account. The Bible teaches 3 key imputations that in its raw essence, captures the story of the Gospel. Hope you enjoy my pictures that I’ve drawn using Paper by 53!
1 Corinthians 15:22
For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.
Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned.
2 Corinthians 5:21
Christ never sinned! But God treated him as a sinner, so that Christ could make us acceptable to God.
1 Peter 2:24
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”
Romans 5:17 (NLT)
For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ.
Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ and become one with him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith.
