We are righteous and we wear the breastplate of righteousness to protect our hearts from the fiery darts of condemnation (Eph 6:14). The condemnation is designed to keep you confused and thinking you have to clean up your life so you can be like Jesus, when the truth is you are perfect and complete in Christ. You are healed, rich, blessed and holy as he is holy. You are healed so walk it out! You are rich so walk it out! You are blessed and holy so walk it out.
Satan wants you to think you are starting at the starting line and should be striving to run to the finish line. The Truth is that Jesus ran the race for us so we can start at the finish line. When He said “It is finished,” sin and condemnation were finished for the believer. Jesus proved God’s love for the world as He finished the work of providng salvation and the way back to the father by going to Calvary and dying for the sin of the whole world.
Joh 3:16 KJV For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Joh 1:29 KJV The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
Joh 17:4 KJV I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
Joh 19:30 KJV When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
Rom 5:18 NLT Yes, Adam’s one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone.
Heb 2:9 ERV For a short time Jesus was made lower than the angels, but now we see him wearing a crown of glory and honor because he suffered and died. Because of God’s grace, Jesus died for everyone.
Before Jesus died for our sins He lived to bring us the truth. Jesus said that when we know the truth we will be free to do the good works that our Heavenly Father created mankind to do. In Genesis chapter one verse twenty seven God created mankind and in verse twenty eight He charged them to fill the earth, to guard the earth and subdue it. God’s plan for man was to have all of the creation under his control and for man to replenish the earth in the same manner that He had created the earth.
Gen 1:26-28 KJV And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Until Jesus came and answered the question, “What is man,” mankind could only speculate as to the true origin of man. Until this day the unregenerated man is still speculating and asking the age-old question what is this life all about?
