Morning Message of Motivation
The New Testament: 13
Rev. Robert Ampiah-Kwofi
There are some simple but great truths of the New Covenant that have the power to set all mankind free.
John 8:32 NKJV
“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
The universal sinfulness of man.
All men have a sinful nature. This nature produces sinful acts.
Romans 3:23 NKJV
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
The sinfulness of mankind is a direct result of the fall of Adam and Eve. All men have gone astray.
Isaiah 53:6 NKJV
“All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.”
Man cannot make himself righteous.
Most men try to live as good a life as they possibly can, but they still cannot make themselves righteous. Some men try to do more good than evil, hoping their good deeds will cancel out their evil deeds. All these efforts are futile.
Isaiah 64:6 ESV
“We have all become like one who is unclean,
and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.”
Man needed a Saviour and Redeemer
Matthew 1:21 NKJV
“And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
Jesus shed His own blood to redeem us.
Hebrews 9:12
“Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.”
Christ offers us righteousness as a gift.
2 Corinthians 5:21 NKJV
“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
Christ’s salvation package is complete.
May you enjoy from Christ’s salvation table. May forgiveness, mercy and grace be yours abundantly, in Jesus’ name.
