“…Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone.” Romans 5:18
The redemptive work of Christ Jesus introduced the ultimate act of deliverance from the evil one. The death and resurrection of the Son of God introduced finality as Satan’s death grip on the throat of humanity was forever forced loose. Christ ended the effects of sin, which were to forever separate man from God the Father. Jesus placed an indestructible bridge for all to cross, who would believe and receive him, the Christ, the Messiah, the only Son of God, and his magnificent grace-gift.
Through him the way, the only way, was established for man to enter into right relationship with God. Yes, relationship, genuine close relationship and friendship with the God of all life!
Deliverance from the evil one was, indeed, established through the threshold of Jesus as we escaped the darkness and entered into new life; eternal life.
Praise to you this morning, my deliverer! Amen.
