Jesus became cursed for you

As born-again children of God we cannot walk around thinking we are still subject to some kind of curse. These curses include the ones given to mankind in the Garden of Eden (women’s suffering in childbirth, man toiling and suffering to make a living etc.) as well as curses you might believe you have inherited (generational curses). Every single curse, including the curse of the law and condemnation, was fully dealt with on the cross.

“His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but you shall surely bury him on the same day, for a hanged man is accursed by God.” Deut 21:23

“Christ purchased our freedom [redeeming us] from the curse (doom) of the Law [and its condemnation] by [Himself] becoming a curse for us, for it is written [in the Scriptures], Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree (is crucified);” Gal 3:13

Jesus Himself became the curse for us. Deuteronomy says He actually became accursed by God. That means He was denounced, punished, condemned and chastised for our sins, in order for us to never bear the weight of a curse again.

“So if the Son liberates you [makes you free men], then you are really and unquestionably free.” John 8:36

We only have to believe this!
