NO CONDEMNATION PART IV
“Andnot as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.” – Romans 5:16-18
Every natural man in the world involuntarily inherited condemnation; not because of what he has done or not done but because of the seed of iniquity injected into man through the first man.
King David said:
“Behold I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.” – Psalm 51:5
Glory be to God! By choice man has access to the free gift of justification though another man called Jesus Christ. However, if we claim to have light and walk in darkness; we lie and the truth is not in us. A continuous self-review of our daily activities (our thoughts, words and actions) will reveal to us whether we walk in the light or claiming to walk in the light but dwelling in darkness.
Pause now; reflect on your activities in the past twenty four hours. Do they depict light or something else.
Scriptures for meditation: Romans 5:19-21; Romans 8:33-34
