Adam or Jesus?
Adam or Jesus?
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
Who is your father – Adam or Jesus?
Are you a sinner because you sin?
You are/were a sinner because of Adam, not because of anything you did!
You are righteous also not by anything you did. You are righteous by receiving God’s abundant grace and HIS GIFT of RIGHTEOUSNESS through Jesus Christ. Your behavior does not change you from a sinner to righteous. It is what Jesus did which makes you righteous.
Your sin nature has nothing to do with your behavior. Your sin nature comes from your ancestral background through Adam. Your sin nature has everything to do with Adam. Thus, before receiving the Gift of Righteousness and the Gift of Salvation through Jesus Christ, there is nothing you could do which would make you righteous.
The same is true after receiving God’s abundant grace and the Gift of righteousness. There is no current sin which can make you a sinner again. Your old nature is gone. You have gone from a caterpillar to a butterfly. You cannot go back to being a caterpillar. You are the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Jesus took all the past, present and future sins on the cross. Your current sin does not negate God’s abundance of grace through Jesus Christ.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17 The new creation has come as a butterfly; the old caterpillar is gone.
Jesus forgave ALL SINS on the cross. If you think he missed one, then he needs to go back and die again on the cross.
Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit. 1 Peter 3:18 NLT
We have been set apart as holy because Jesus Christ did what God wanted him to do by sacrificing his body once and for all. Hebrews 10:10 GWT
Watch how your sin begins to decrease as you confess “you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.” There is no condemnation because you are in Christ Jesus. You are loved and accepted by God. Your old (Adam) sinful nature is gone and your new (Righteousness) nature has come in Christ Jesus.
The enemy of God wants you to focus on your behavior. Focus on what Christ did, HIS BEHAVIOR, HIS complete finished work on the cross with HIS Blood. You will be set free.
Receive your new nature today.
