Jesus our great difference maker frees us from a life of sin, turmoil and death. Jesus transforms our life into a life of love, peace and free of sin.
Without Jesus, we are all in the same boat, a ship without a rudder tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine that leads to a life of destruction and death. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23. Our salvation is Jesus; God in His great love for each of us sends us His Son, our lifesaving, and life-changing lifeguard, to save us from a life of sin, turmoil and destruction. “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23. Praise our Heavenly Father, for His gift of love and grace in Jesus our Lord and Savior.
“What shall we say then? Are we to continue to sin so that grace may increase? May it never be! How shall we who died to sin live in it?” Romans 6:1. Jesus our Lord and Savior “He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by His wounds you have been healed.” First Peter 2:24. “Therefore, I urge you brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God-this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-- His good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:1-2.
How do we identify a born again child of God? “No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God. This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are; anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister.” First John 3:9-10.
We will know the redeemed children of God by their righteousness and love. “For those God foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the Firstborn among many brothers and sisters.” Romans 8:29. Jesus came to live for us and show us the way unto the Father as His redeemed children. Jesus also, came to die for us that through His life-blood and righteousness we might be free of sin. If Jesus was willing to die for each of us, for the forgiveness of our sins and defeat our greatest enemy death and the grave, will He not empower us with His presence? Jesus said, “Anyone who loves Me will obey My teaching. My Father will love them, and We will come to them and make Our home with them.” John 14:21. Jesus said, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. So if the Son of Man makes you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:31, 32, 36. Jesus makes us free of sin, death and the grave. Through His holy word and His holy presence in our lives, Jesus is our Great Difference Maker.
