Salvation in Eden
“For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.” 1 Corinthians 15:22 (NIV)
If it weren’t for Adam you wouldn’t have to die, but if it weren’t for Jesus you wouldn’t have life, now and forever. So don’t lament that Adam and Eve sinned, but rejoice that Jesus stepped into human history as our Savior! When Adam yielded to Satan’s temptation and brought the separation of sin into our world, you and I were not without hope because of Jesus Christ.
The signs of these times are not meant to tell us that things are falling apart, but they are telling us that things are falling into place. Take comfort in knowing that the plan of redemption from the creation of the world is in full forward motion.
Let’s pray today that unbelievers will consider that God planned for their salvation back in Eden.
