YOU MEAN SO MUCH TO HIM 5 by Damilola Rachael

‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that
whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in
order that the world might be saved through him.’  John 3:16-17
We are almost drawing the curtain on this topic, hence I will help make some facts by going over it again from the very beginning.
‘For God so loved the world……. ‘
God’s express character is love, we see that before the foundation of the world, he had loved us….’even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love ‘ Eph 1:4
‘but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners,
Christ died for us. Roms 5:8
Hence,’…….that he gave his only begotten son ‘
The expression of his son is seen in Christ, in fact it has always been in Christ, Love gives, God gave;
‘He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will
he not also with him graciously give us all things? ‘ Roms 8:32
God loved the MAN, he did before it’s foundation, and his desire is
that man would be established in his love, hence,
‘Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” Gen 1:26
‘He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the
Majesty on high,Heb 1:3
Hence, the man God always had in mind,  was the man in Christ, Adam deferred, God proacted, He couldn’t have forced Adam to make a choice, but he could do something to reconcile him, he made a provision even before Adam’s
action.
Such great love, he wouldn’t want to see man perish, hence Jesus bore
the consequences of sin.
And ‘……that whosoever believes
Hence, that man would find himself at the center of God’s plan, he would do only one thing, To believe.
Not 5 steps to making heaven or what-have-you, but he will believe, that is trust in a fact that Christ actually paid it all and he is done forever!
That his sins has been taken care of and he is now seen as one who
never sinned!
Then ‘…….shall have everlasting life ‘
‘Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of
reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.  ‘2Cor 5:17-19
He is a NEW CREATION
‘even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—Eph 2:5
He is no longer considered as dead but now made ALIVE.
‘He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to
the kingdom of his beloved Son, ‘Col 1:13
He is delivered from the domain of darkness and God’s light forever!
So, God’s plan could never have been CONDEMNATION but JUSTIFICATION
‘ There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.’ Roms 8:1
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with
God through our Lord Jesus ChristRoms 5:1
‘Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one
act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous.Roms 5:18-19
He could have never want to condemn man, infact he never did.
Sin brought death, hence condemns man
It is the presence of sin that brought about a consciousness of Sin. Hence, God in Christ made sacrifice for sins.
That man can now be made sons, hence son ship conscious.
By the reason of Jesus sacrifice.
We are made justified and are called righteous!The Gospel can’t be more emphasized!
The gift of salvation could never have justified us and yet condemn us
No!. He is not dual natured! He is one!

And his eternal desire is to see men see themselves as he sees him. And he sees men as SONS FOREVER!
See yourself that way too!
You are not Condemned,
But justified!
DECLARATION
I am not condemned
But made justified through Christ
I am Son forever
I’m in Christ and at peace with God! Glory!
