„But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For He is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us.“ Ephesians 2:13-14
Jesus becomes your peace as a born again Christian. He came on an everlasting mission to restore to man, the life of God,which Adam lost to Satan. This He did by establishing a new covenant. Before Jesus came, man was in a perishing state,stripped of all honour,dignity and power.
Man had lost control of every aspect of life and had come under the control of the evil one without Christ,and anyone who is not born again is still in this state of perishing and doom under Satan’s reign of terror. Only through Christ can anyone be rescued from the ruthless grips of Satan and enter this new covenant. You now have access to this glorious life that is made possible by the new covenant established by our Lord Jesus.
Through Christ, God once again re-established man in his position of dominion, where he has control over all things. Man can once again live supernaturally on the earth. We need an understanding of what we have in Christ so we can maximize life! In John 10:10b, Jesus said „I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.“
Through Christ,our access to the life of God, eternal life is permanent. We can no longer be under the domain of the devil. We are now born of God. „Which were born,not of blood,nor of the will of the flesh,nor of the will of man, but of God.“ John 1:13
So Christianity is no mere religion, Christianity is life! The best of life is in Christ Jesus.
This month of May,God is revealing to us our access through the covenant in Christ to a glorious life without end. By the grace of God, as you join us, you will be able to see and understand who you are and what you have by the virtue of your new birth.
When the son sets you free,you are free indeed.
God bless you!
