DAILY DEVOTIONMay 9th, 2019
By Pastor Wilberforce Bezudde
“For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” (Romans 8:3-6)
The law and the sacrifices of animals and birds could not remove sin from mankind. The sacrifices of birds and animals showed the Israelites the seriousness of sin but had no power to remove sin. The sacrifices only pointed to Christ’s sacrifice, which paid the penalty for all sins. Jesus gave Himself as a sacrifice for our sins, not ours only, but for the whole world. The penalty is now paid; we are no longer on a death penalty. We have been freed. Sin is no longer dwelling in us; it is now the Holy Spirit who dwells in us. Jesus is Lord!
I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus; sin has no power over me. My Heavenly Father rejoices over me. I am His outstretched arm of righteousness to the world. Amen.
(Study Hebrews 10:4 and 1 John 2:1-2).
