Yes, Adam’s one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone. – Romans 5:18
If all we look at is the original sin, life looks so hopeless, doesn’t it? But as we see what Christ did on Calvary, we see that there is hope for renewal and real change in behavior and lifestyle – for everyone who accepts Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior! I like the sound of HOPE, don’t you?
This portion of Scripture celebrates freedom for every Christian. There is finally good news that we can have eternal life because of what Christ endured to pay the price for our sins – past, present, and future.
If we put blinders on and see just the one original sin, we’re likely to lack vision regarding our own life. Salvation does not guarantee that we will never sin, and the truth is, that ol’ devil will mess with a Christian more than a non-Christian! When we do get tangled up in the weeds, we do have hope for better days ahead.
Sin is only fun for a season, and be sure it will find you out one way or the other. When it does, turn back to God, seek His forgiveness and the forgiveness of those you wronged here if possible. Move out of the ruins and walk in God’s beautiful light. Nobody knows your heart better than He does. He can and will help you get your act together again.
It’s almost May and the April showers are nearly a thing of the past. As the May flowers start growing around you, don’t you want your life to be heading in the right direction? Discover a new life that will not only make you happier, but be pleasing to God as well. That’s what matters – pleasing our Heavenly Father. Let Him pick you up, dust you off, and set you on His straight path.
Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life. – 1 Corinthians 15:22
New life. That sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? Why live under the death curse, among the weeds and the waste, when with Christ, you can have a new life? He loves you so much and wants to give you His peace, joy, love, hope and eternal life. Walk out of the ruins and into His loving arms. He will make you a beautiful flower! 🙂
