Morning Message of Motivation
Christ our Redeemer: 3
Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi
The need of man for redemption is established beyond any reasonable doubt. Mankind’s captivity was established in various laws.
Law of sin and death
Laws are rules that are established by an authority. Laws are also enforced. The first negative law that proceeded from Adam’s sin is the law of “sin and death.”
Romans 8:2 NKJV
“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.”
Christ created a new law to free us from the law of sin and death.
*Law of constant temptation*
Temptation is an inducement to do evil.
Romans 7:21 KJV
“I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.”
Satan deploys circumstances and situations to awaken evil desires in men and to get men to act upon such evil desires.
Matthew 4:1 KJV
“Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.”
Satan is called “the tempter” because he actively and mischievously tries to engineer circumstances to make men do evil.
Matthew 4:3 NKJV
“Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.”
The strength of temptation comes from evil desires, which may be active or dormant in men.
James 1:13 NKJV
“Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone.”
Some people wrongly think God is behind their troubles and difficulties. The truth is that Satan the tempter seeks to exploit their weaknesses.
James 1:14 NKJV
“But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.”
Christ is the deliverer from all evil.
May you enjoy the full benefits of Christ’s redemption. May God’s grace and mercy fill your life with good things, in Jesus’ name.
