not sin in general

I love  Darryl Dash's latest post found below. Feel free to substitute any sin issue you want. It still works. Jesus bore our specific sins.

I knew this, but I’d never thought about it in exactly this way. In his book Closing the Window: Steps to Living Porn Free, Tim Chester paraphrases 2 Corinthians 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."
On the cross, God treated Christ as a porn user…[Paraphrasing 2 Corinthians 5:21], “God made Jesus, who never looked with lust, to be a porn addict for us, so that in him we might become sexually pure.”
Jesus died not just for abstract sins, or sin in general, but my sins (whatever they are) in particular. Amazing.
