For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.Romans 5:10(KJV)
Having laid the indestructible foundation that sinful man is irrefutably lost and at enmity with God through rebellion and sin, and having proved that all humanity have fallen far short of the glorious perfection that God expects from His creation, Paul jubilantly proclaims the triumphant victory of Christ's finished work on the Cross, over Adam's sin and our inherent sin nature.
Although sin caused us to be weak and powerless to help ourselves, we discover that Christ died on behalf of the ungodly, justifying and acquitting all who believe in Him for salvation and bringing us into a right relationship with the Father, through time into eternity.
It was Christ's blood, shed on the Cross of Calvary, that freed us from the indignation and wrath of God which was poured out on Him in our stead. It was not because of our goodness that we were delivered from our just punishment for sin, for it was while we were still enemies of God and dead in our trespasses and sins that Christ died for us.
Having been made righteous through the blood of Jesus Christ, while we were still enemies of God and wallowing in sinful rebellion, and having received the free gift of eternal life by grace through faith in Him, how much more certain is it that, during this life, we shall be delivered daily from the dominion of sin in our lives through Christ's resurrection life?
How much more certain is it that having been brought back into right relationship with the Father, we shall be saved by the indwelling life of Christ,as we travel through our journey of life?
Praise God that when we were enemies of God, we were reconciled to Himself by the death of His only begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You that while I was still dead in trespasses and sins that Christ died for me. Thank You for the assurance I have in Christ, that by His resurrection life, I may be delivered daily from sin's dominion over me. I thank You, Father, in Jesus' name, AMEN.
