Lucifer was the guardian cherub of the whole earth, but he made the wrong choice and was demoted to a doomed evil being.
Adam was anointed by God to have dominion over the earth, but he made a wrong choice and was demoted to a mere man.
Eve was anointed to help Adam take care of the earth, but she made a wrong choice and was demoted to a mere woman.
Everyone since then had made wrong choices and suffered for it.
Jesus was anointed by God to be the Savior of the world. When he was tempted he always made the right choice—God said choose righteousness. At the appointed time God asked Jesus to suffer the consequences of mankind's wrong choices—as a stand in for them—because he was the only one who could do the job. He was the only one who had walked the walk and talked the talk as God had instructed. He had to walk it out so that he fully qualified for all the promises of God. Since he was the only one who had remained sinless, he was the only one who could bare sins for other. Someone had to be our representative and take our consequences. Why? Because Adam and Eve’s choice sold mankind out and Jesus choice bought them back. Sin makes slaves of people and Jesus frees us from sin. But in order for people to remain free from becoming a slave to sin again, they must accept the Lordship of Jesus. He has already proved himself. He is the only one who can keep people free of sin.
Jesus made the right choice as always-- he obeyed his Father—he became the sacrificial lamb. Now he can offer every person the opportunity to receive him as Savior and Lord.
As your Savior, his shed blood will wash away all your sins. As your Lord, he lives in your heart and you have eternal life.
That’s right, if you will make this very important right choice, to receive Jesus, you will be “born again” of the Spirit of God. That means you will be spiritually alive (God living in your spirit) just as Adam and Eve were be-fore the fall. This act of righteousness on Jesus’ part reconciles those who accept God’s plan of salvation, back to God Almighty as their very own Father. By choosing Jesus you will come into covenant with God. His part is to be your loving Father in every sense of the word and your part is to trust him and obey him.
As your Lord, Jesus will live and reign in your heart so that you can start over and make right choices. Choose Jesus and live!
