IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS


IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS

Romans 5:18 (NKJV) Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life.

Romans 5:18 (MSG) Here it is in a nutshell: Just as one person did it wrong and got us in all this trouble with sin and death, another person did it right and got us out of it. But more than just getting us out of trouble, he got us into life!

When Adam sinned, the whole world got messed up.  His sin was high treason: giving rulership of planet earth to the outlaw, satan.  We see what happened to the animal kingdom, the plants, and even humans.  Where there was once love one for another, now there is hate.  Where the lion once laid with the lamb, now the lion eats the lamb.  Where plants were once so full of beauty, now we have thorns.  We can dwell on this in life and get depressed, or we can look to Jesus.

Adam brought judgment and condemnation, but Jesus brought justification and life.  Adam got us all into trouble, but Jesus got us into life.  That is why Paul stated in Romans 8:1-2, “Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.”

For those of us that are in Christ Jesus, we are the freest people that have ever walked the earth, since Adam before the fall.  Because of Jesus, we are free from the law of sin and death.  You might say, “Man, you talk about Jesus a lot.”  You have got that right!  Without Jesus, I am lost in my sins.  Without Jesus, I have a one-way ticket to hell.  But because of Jesus, I am saved and redeemed.  I can live a life of victory and abundance.  I can have peace and joy.  He even tasted death for me, so I know that if the rapture does not come in my lifetime, He will be there to guide me to my eternal home.  So yes, I will say it till I die: “IT IS ALL ABOUT JESUS!”

CONFESSION:  It is all about Jesus!  He has saved me and redeemed me.  He has restored me and given me abundance of life.  Oh, how I love Jesus!
