Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Jesus Majesty

​”Son of God, Son of Man”
Isaiah 53 reminded us of the fact that Jesus died because we messed up, and this passage in Romans carries on the theme. It’s all so clear; each of us are sinners in desperate need of Jesus’s heart of mercy that longs to atone for us. It was only His blood that could pay the price, bringing us back out of exile and home to God.
The only way that Jesus could die was for Him to take on flesh and bone in the first place. Paul explains that it is through not only Jesus’ death (6-8) but his resurrection (9-11) that we can now stand before God, secure that the debt has been paid, that the guilt and sin has been dealt with.
But does Paul mean when he writes about us being God’s enemies? Surely that can’t be right. Well, it is. Unbelief is hostility. Choosing to reject God places us opposite Him. 
But Jesus’ actions were so loving, His arms so strong that He made the first move. While we were wayward children, living against Him, His death put things right. And only He could have done it. Only heaven’s Lion could have become the perfect Lamb.
Look back at Leviticus 4:1-3 and 27-35 and we see that sin – whether intentional or not – needs to be paid for. Why? God has always longed for the hearts of His people, and this complex set of rituals was designed with one purpose in mind: to remind them of all that He had done for them. 
Back in Romans 5, verse 11, here it makes perfectly clear what happened when Jesus set aside His crown: he bought us back. He has made the ultimate exchange and prepared the way for us to approach God.

For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.  For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.  And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
