THE GIFT OF CHRIST

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” Romans 6:23

LIGHT FOR NOW:   salvation is a legal matter

It is unfortunate that many people lack the understanding that the salvation that Jesus Christ brought was not only for Christians. It was for everybody in the world. It is by belief and the confession of the Lordship of Jesus Christ that makes that salvation become real in your life. In the mind of justice, the whole world was legally saved by the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is because Christ paid the price for every man’s sin, thus making eternal life possible and available to everyone. Salvation is a legal matter and in legality, there is no room for sentimentality. A man can only be saved through his faith in Christ. However, because many people are yet to come to the knowledge of this, they still wander about in darkness, living the depraved human life instead of the divine life in Christ.

The scripture in Romans 10:9-10 clearly shows how one can activate the gift to Christ to the entire world which is salvation. It reads, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”. God already knew that the human life is degenerate and depraved. This is why He made provision for man to transcend from the degenerate and depraved life into immortality which is the very life and nature of God. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life”. Eternal life is the life and nature of God. It is the God-kind of life and it is made available to everyone who believes in Christ. Therefore, Christ is the gift of God to the entire world.

INSTRUCTION: Believe in Christ.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for the gift of salvation and it encompasses. Thank you for making me a partaker of the God-kind of life, in Jesus Name. Amen.

QUOTE: Salvation is a legal matter and in legality, there is no sentimentality.
