Obedience of One

For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Romans 5:19

Adam’s sin has impacted us all, because of him there is now disease, sorrow, and death. His mortality has been passed down to all of us and we bear the burden of his disobedience.

However thru the atonement sacrifice of Jesus, he saved us all.  He was without sin and washed us clean. So by Adam sin came death and by Jesus sacrifice came life.

Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: Romans 5:20

Before Jesus fulfilled the law, God delivered the Law to Moses. Although mankind knew what to expect from God, we couldn’t control our sinful and rebellious ways. For we are all sinners and fall short to the Glory of God.

As it says in the book of Revelation, no one was worthy of opening the book of Life (Revelations 5:4) , except one, and that is our Lord Jesus Christ.

That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 5:21

We are slaves to sin, many will try to deny this, but our sins own us. Not only do they control us but they will kill us. There is only one who can break the chains and that is Jesus Christ.

Jesus didn’t come to condemn the world but save it. His mercy and grace is greater than the evils of this world. Because of the sins of Adam, you need Jesus, he is the only one who can make you worthy to stand before God. Give yourself to him today and add your name to the book of life in Jesus name Amen

    IS DISOBEDIENCE SIMPLY AN INEFFECTUAL ACT? BY STEVE FINNELL

    When Christians continue in a sinful lifestyle are they risking losing their inheritance in the kingdom of God or are they simply obeying the command of Satan?

    Ephesians 5:1-7 Therefore be followers of God as dear children………..3 But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; 4 neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting , but rather giving thanks. 5 For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. 6. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes on the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not be partakers with them. (NHJV)

    Is unrepentant disobedience to God’s commands followed by God’s wrath, or is it simply the ineffectual acts of following the commands of Satan ?

    IS OBEYING JESUS BY BEING IMMERSED IN WATER SIMPLY AN INEFFECTUAL ACT OF OBEDIENCE?

    Jesus said “…and is baptized will be saved…” (Mark 16:16–NKJV))

    Is obeying the apostle Peter’s command to be baptized simply an ineffectual act of obedience?

    Peter said “.. and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins…” (Acts 2:38—NKJV)

    Is obeying God’s commands simply the right thing to do or does it affect men’s salvation?

    Does God forgive the sins of the unrepentant? Does God forgive the sin of a murder if that person continues to kill people on a daily bases until he dies? You make the call!
