Understand what "instead" means - He was us and we are Him

I had a crazy dream this week. Well, I have a crazy dream every night but this one was right in with the rest of the crazies. Either way, I had a big moment upon awakening, something I already knew was explained further:
Jesus died as us. He was us. He is us if we are in Him. He became all that we were inside, the plague that is sin and the condemnation, even though He was still Himself, He literally was Christina and everyone else who has turned to Him for salvation. He stood up for us as us, to redeem us and grab justice by its throat, even though it included suffering blows in our stead!
If we believe that He lived as us and died for us, we can believe that we can live as He lived before He died and even more with the knowledge that He has overcome the world and we each have a call to ministry..we can live as we should have always lived and prepare to live even better in the next life since we believe He lives again.

What do you think about all of this?
