Romans 5:1216 NKJV

“Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned— (For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many. And the gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned. For the judgment which came from one offense resulted in condemnation, but the free gift which came from many offenses resulted in justification.“


In the garden of Eden is where death came, instead of the life yielding tree, Eve chose the to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, and gave it to her husband Adam who also ate. What a disaster for all mankind that death came through the sin of one man Adam, but thanks be to God for He has given us His grace through one Man Jesus Christ that we may have life everlasting in Him. We have been crucified with Christ and it is not longer us who live but Christ who lives in us (Galatians 2:20), therefore we are called to be Christlike in our words, conduct, interactions and everything.


God has given each one of us the will to choose either life or death. This will was inceptualized during the fall of man. Given the choice to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil or the tree of life, Eve chose the tree that yields death and Adam also ate (Genesis 2:8-17). We have been given the option to follow the word and commands of God. Those who hear and do according to God’s word have life but those who rebel against God come to death (Deuteronomy 30:19). Achan rebelled and chose to steal the spoils of Jericho, a beautiful Babylonian garment, two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold weighing fifty shekels which brought guilt to the whole of Israel and brought death upon his head. We also find that our tongues have power of life and death and whatever we choose we eat its fruit (Proverbs 18:21). Lastly, we obtain life or death through our belief systems. Those who hear the word of God and have faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God have eternal life, but those who reject Him come to eternal death (John 5:24). 


Dear Almighty Father we come to You with thanksgiving and adoration in our hearts. We thank You for loving us with great love and when we were still sinners, You died for us. How great is Your love upon us. Thank You for loving us and calling us to Yourself. You have set us apart to Yourself and made us a new generation, a royal priesthood and a holy nation, and all praise belongs to You. Thank You have loved us and washed us with the precious blood of Jesus Christ. May You sanctify us afresh body, soul and spirit dear Lord Jesus. May You touch the hearts of all those who do not know You dear Jesus and lead them in the way of salvation. May You remember all those who are sick and suffering, and heal them. May You encourage those who have lost hope with Your peace that surpasses all understanding. May You heal our wounds, physical, emotional, financial, psychological and revive us. May You heal our land dear Jesus we humbly implore You. We ask that You prosper all our plans and hearts desires, and make a way for us where there seems to be no way, according to Your great love. May You do a new thing in our lives, families, children, businesses, education, society and nation. May You enlighten our steps and make everything new in Your name. We claim Your victory in every situation for we are more than conquerors in You dear Jesus. We shall not die but live to declare Your goodness Oh Lord. May You bless us and keep us dear Lord Jesus. May You shine Your face towards us and be gracious unto us. May You show Your countenance unto us and give us peace. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now and forevermore. Amen
