Zech 3:4-5 “And the angel said to those who were standing before him, ‘Remove the filthy garments from him.’ And to him he said, ‘Behold, I have taken your iniquity away from you, and I will clothe you with pure vestments.’ And I said, ‘Let them put a clean turban on his head.’ So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him with garments. And the angel of the Lord was standing by.”
2 Cor 5:21 “For our sake He made Him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.”
1 Cor 3:6-9 “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. He who plants & he who waters are one, & each will receive his wages according to his labor. For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building.”
1 Peter 1:23 “Since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living & abiding Word of God.”
John 6:5-10 Lifting up His eyes, then, & seeing that a large crowd was coming toward Him, Jesus said to Philip, “Where are we to buy bread, so that these people may eat?” He said this to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do. Philip answered Him, “Two hundred denarii worth of bread would not be enough for each of them to get a little.” One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to Him, “There is a boy here who has five barley loaves & two fish, but what are they for so many?” Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.”
John 6:14 When the people saw the sign that He had done, they said, “This is indeed the Prophet who is to come into the world!”
Eph 6:6 “Not by the way of eye service, as people-pleasers, but as servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart.”
The Bible states that Jesus Christ exchanged His righteousness for our sin; His purity for our defilement; His holiness for our filthiness. In this great exchange He expects us to tell others about the great exchange. We call it the Great Commission. In our quest to obey, we do so like Andrew, one soul at a time. Who’s your one?
