For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. –Romans 6:23 NIV
For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ! –Romans 5:17 NIV
How wonderful and amazing the Love of God is to us. When we, humans are created, His main purpose is for humans to worship Him. Now, we all know that worship is vague– vague in its description, whether in acts, deeds or words, but main result or end goal is — to give God glory.
Since in the beginning, we are good and pleasant in the eyes of God as we are created in His own image and likeness (Gen 1:27). We are His masterpiece. He was so happy of our creation. It was all very good in His eyesight (Gen 1:31). Well in fact, because he was satisfied –He rested on the seventh day (Gen 2:2).
As we read Genesis, we can see that we are created out of Love, Passion and Determination. When the “fall of man” came into picture because of disobedience (Gen 3), sin came to destroy our relationship to God — Our “nearness” to God blocked by sin — we are condemned! God’s wrath is upon us. We are dead.
For thousands of years, we are doomed to hell as sin reigned in this fallen world. But because of we are created out of God’s great Love, His faithfulness supersede. He made it possible for us to be lift up from God’s wrath and condemnation.
He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus (John 3:16).
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
John 3:16-18 NIV
God made it easy and possible for us, to have our relationship to Him back!
Because of Jesus’ obedience, we are saved. We are spared from God’s wrath. Only thing we need to do is to “believe” and to have faith in His blood that shed on the cross.
Now, by believing in Him, we will have Eternal Life (John 3:16). This is the Life that we have through CHRIST.
Jesus Christ paid the price that we need to pay. All because of God’s Great Love, Grace is given. For us to have Life through CHRIST!
All glory to God!💖
