Under Gods Command

Romans 5:10-11 For if, when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!  Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ through whom we have now received reconciliation. 

God is holy, and he will not be associated with sin.  All people are sinful and so they are separated from God.  In addition, all sin deserves punishment.  Instead of punishing us with the death we deserve, however, Christ took our sins upon himself and took our punishment by dying on the cross.

 

Lets Bring it home: Now we can  “rejoice in God.” Through faith in Christ’s work, we become close to God (reconciled) rather than being enemies and outcast.
