“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8Text — Romans 5:6-10
Adam, the first man on earth was disobedient to God. Through his sin and act of disobedience, he brought condemnation and death to the whole world. As such, everyone born into this world became sinners and stood condemned before God.
Although this single act of disobedience caused trouble for all men, another single act of obedience reversed it! Jesus died on the cross to take away the sins of the world, Hallelujah! Through His death, God provides eternal life and a right standing for us. Christ’s act of love and obedience was powerful and potent enough to overcome Adam’s one act of disobedience – providing life for everyone.
Are you a friend of Jesus? Have you been saved from sin? If not, please, you need to do so today without any further delay. Confess your sins to Him. Ask for pardon and cleansing through His shed blood. Accept Him as your personal Saviour and Lord. Then, ask for the grace not to go back to sin.
If you’re already a believer, praise Him for His love that has found and brought you out from the dungeon of sin.
Prayer for today
