14 Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come.
No matter what walk of life your from, what color your skin is, what language you speak, or where you live, every person from Adam to present has the same common need…a Savior. It doesn’t matter if you were born in palace or in the slums by your paternal bloodline, going back to the very first man, you have a sin nature. The very reason why Jesus was not conceived by a man and was born to a virgin was so that He would not be born into the sin nature that had plagued mankind since the fall. He was born with pure blood in His veins and He never contaminated it by falling into sin. He was therefore the one and only Perfect Sacrifice for the sins of the world. As a believer it’s easy to forget how lost you once were and stop seeking out the lost and dying. This doesn’t mean that you live in a place of guilt and shame so you can reach others. It means that you never lose site of the grace and mercy you received to be in right standing with the God of all creation. Even if you have nothing else in common with them, you have the answer to the life of freedom that they’re seeking. Who can you give the gift of eternity to today? One thing is certain, you won’t have to look very far. Allow your Savior to become their’s as well. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
