Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.”
Because of the sin of our father Adam all mankind was plunged into sin;
“Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned”
So it’s ok if you don’t want to bring me any gift because I was given the greatest gift of all, the gift of eternal life;
“But the free gift (Salvation) is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one (Adam) the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many.”
See, Christ lived a perfect life, sinless, holy, for He is God in flesh . Because of that, He qualified to bear our sins on the cross on which He was put and died and three days later rose again for death had no hold on him since He never sinned.
Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.
For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh,
so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
THIS is the greatest gift of all and only Jesus Christ offers it!
To Him who keeps His children from falling and present them before the throne blameless, God’s Son and our Redeemer Jesus Christ be all glory, majesty, dominion and authority now and forevermore. Amen!
