“Christ is Made unto Us…” — (1 Corinthians 1:30)

But of him are ye in Christ Jesus,” by electing love and regenerating grace, “who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.” God has put all things in Christ, made Christ to be all things to all his people, and given us all things in Christ. We are complete in him. —

Christ is our Wisdom. — “The fear of the Lord,” that is faith in Christ, “is the beginning of wisdom.” Christ is the Revelation of God. And he shows us the wisdom of God in redemption, causing us to see how that God can be just and the Justifier of all who believe, making us wise unto salvation.

Christ is our Righteousness. — We have no righteousness of our own. But Christ is “THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” His righteousness has been so thoroughly and perfectly made ours that we are “the righteousness of God in him” and calls us by his own name — “The Lord our Righteousness” (Jeremiah 23:6; 33:16). With his spotless garments on, we are as holy as God’s dear Son!

Christ is our Sanctification. — Not only has his righteousness been imputed to us for justification, it has been imparted to us in sanctification by the grace of God. He is that holiness in us without which no man shall see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14). In the new birth, God gave us a holy nature. And that nature is Christ. Our sanctification in Christ is threefold. We were set apart in him by eternal election, declared to be holy in him by redemption, and made holy by him in regeneration.

Christ is our Redemption. — The word ‘redemption” means deliverance. Christ has delivered us from the penalty of sin by his death as our Substitute. He has delivered us from the dominion of sin by his almighty grace in conversion. And he shall deliver us from all the evil consequences of sin (the presence of sin, the being of sin, and death itself) by his power in resurrection glory at the last day.

What shall we say to these things? “He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord!
