“But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.” Romans 5:15.
Child of God, do you know there is no sin too bad that the blood of Jesus has not already dealt with? No matter how bad it is! There is no sin in your life that the blood has not already dealt with. The blood of Jesus is more powerful than your sins. And the blood will not lose its power! Jesus said in John 10:10,” the thief cometh not but to steal, to kill and to destroy but I am come that you may have life and have it in abundance”. The reason Jesus came from heaven to earth is that you will have life and have it more abundantly. That is God’s mindset, anything less than that is not acceptable.
Death is still reigning over those who are not in Christ, but you have been made righteous. By one man’s sin (Adam) you became a sinner. And by another man’s obedience (Jesus) you became righteous. So stop looking at yourself and start looking at the finished work of Jesus. You must understand that whenever God is looking at you, He does not see you. He sees Jesus, the Lamb that was slain, who kept the entire laws completely, without violating any of it.
No man but Jesus kept the entire laws perfectly. That is why I put a pin to the balloon of those who think they can make heaven by their efforts. People who say things like I will pray so that I can be righteous; I will pray so that I can go to heaven; are missing the point. You cannot! Righteousness is a gift that Jesus has paid the price for in full. Your part is to receive what grace has made available for you. In Christ, you are righteous! When you accept it, you will become it and then you can live it.

The Lord will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come. And the Lord will fill this house with His glory.
I shall lay up gold as dust and as the stones of the brook. Yea, the Almighty shall be my defence and I shall have plenty of silver.
God makes all grace abound towards me so that I, having sufficiency of all things, abound unto all good works.
I do not walk in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of the scornful. But my delight is in the law of the Lord and in His law do I meditate day and night. I am like a tree that is planted by the rivers of water. I bring forth my fruit in season, my leaves shall not wither, and whatever I do shall prosper.
I am of God and have overcome the devil, for greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.
The joy of the Lord is my strength. The Lord is the strength of my life.
Every day and in every way I am getting better: spiritually, physically, financially, mentally, morally, and in all my endeavours.
I am called for a purpose. I will fulfil this purpose and I will arrive at God’s ordained destiny for my life. Nothing will cut me short. I will make a formidable impact in my world for the Kingdom.
It is my week of New Things!
