“As in or through Adam guilt came upon all men, so, through CHRIST, the free gift comes upon all men unto justification of life, There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in CHRIST Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the SPIRIT.” Romans 5:18; 8:1.
NOTE: Generations have come and gone, yet, foreparents sins still pitch against many, some would even make the exact or worse mistakes than their old ones lamented on, eye opened! See, I don’t know whether Father Adam or Mother Eve informed Son Cain about the incident that led to their out-of-the-garden adventure. But, I am pretty sure he and his brother Abel heard or learnt about Almighty GOD, otherwise they would not be sacrificing to HIM at their own expense. Yet, Cain behaved arrogantly and got instant Judgement, coupled with the one already passed on to him from his parents.
Wow! Many are still saying, sebi awon la fi Jo! Trully, we have all sinned and come short of the first-hand glory of GOD, through Adam and Eve (focusing on Adam- the directly instructed, who arrogantly and jejely took wrong advice that ruined humanity), as its spring and fountain, sin became diffused through the world, starting with cain and siblings, so that every man comes into the world with sinful propensities: for by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, even till this generation.
Ohh! I have asked myself these few questions that took me back to the place of First Adam and then Second Adam! Ask yourself: Who am I? Have I not sinned too? If not embarrassed with that questions, proceed to make a quick virus-check of your own life! Then ask yourself these questions again..Am I not worse than Adam or Eve presently? Am I really doing things the way GOD wanted me to? How can I be a better person as GOD desired?
Welcome, know first, that, through CHRIST, as its spring and fountain, righteousness becomes diffused through the earth; so that every man is made partaker of a principle of grace and truth; for HE is the true light that lighteth every man that cometh into the world, and If we confess our sins, right here, right now, HE is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
As for me: Haven offended someone before, I pleaded, had him/her forgive me, and then cuddled me. If you’ll ask me! Smiling, I am glad. Yeah, I know this packaged gift of GOD I.e. forgiveness+purification+sanctification=justification+life+++ is great! You can have it now, forsake your sins as well, plead with HIM, make your own request! It worths it! Peace be unto You!
