Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – February 13

“Here it is in a nutshell: Just as one person did it wrong and got us in all this trouble with sin and death, another person did it right and got us out of it. But more than just getting us out of trouble, he got us into life! ” – Romans 5:18

It’s amazing to think that it wasn’t your sin that got you in trouble with God. It was the very first person to do that… Adam. He and Eve sinned and got us all in trouble with sin and death. Their sin was now being passed down to every single person that would ever be born because they were all born of other sinful humans. It was in our blood and we could do nothing about it.

Then Jesus came. He was of a different bloodline; God’s bloodline. He was born of God and perfect, yet was also fully a human like us. God supernaturally broke the curse that we were in through Jesus being born and then becoming our way back to God. Jesus did it right; life, no sin and a perfect bloodline of God. Then Jesus died for all sin at one time and God raised Him back to life. He completely made things right between us and God.

So how does one receive this work of God? It doesn’t just happen because you’re alive. No, you have to reach out and receive it. You have to confess it with your mouth and believe it in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead. If you do this, you receive what Jesus did and you partake in all that He’s provided.

If you’ve never received Jesus, here’s how. If you have, then reminding yourself of this truth is still very helpful. One person had made it all wrong (Adam), but one person (Jesus) made it all right.
