MAY 24,  UNDESERVED PRIVILEGE

Our readings today are I Kings 9, II Chronicles 8, Psalm 136, and Romans 5.  We are reading from the New Living Translation.

Where do you stand?  Do you stand with Adam or with the Son – Jesus – the 2nd Adam?  I was born standing with Adam, and so were you.  Because of Adam’s sin, sin entered into the world.  And we are all standing with Adam.  But now, because of God’s gracious gift of righteousness, through this Son of Righteousness – this 2nd Adam – we can all stand in His righteousness. The tragedy is that there are so many that call on the name of Jesus to be saved, but they fail to stand in Him.  We don’t even know that this is where we have been placed.  We have failed to see that the gift of the Holy Spirit has made us right with God.  But the reality is, He has made us new, in Christ.  He has placed us into Himself.  We are now standing in Him!  

Standing.  It’s not something that you earn or strive for.  It’s something that you must receive, and rest, and rejoice in.  Christian, where do you stand?  Do you know that in Christ, you have been brought to a place of undeserved privilege?.  And you didn’t come in your own effort or strength.  No.  You were brought there as a gift. It is a place of undeserved, unmerited privilege.  You’ve been placed there – not because of your own piety or performance, but because of Him.  It’s a gift!  This is where you stand.  

Be sure of where you stand today.  Know that Christ has made a place for you in Him, today.    You no longer stand with Adam.  You stand with the Son – Jesus.  Tell your soul that today.  Soul, you stand with Him.  You have been brought to a place of undeserved privilege.  And nothing can ever separate you from the love of God shown to you in Christ Jesus.  His faithful love will endure forever.  Enter into the joy, strength and peace of it.  And allow God to share that with others, through you.
