18 Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people. 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.
At one point in time, humans were perfect. There was no heartache, no sins, no death, and nothing to disrupt the peace. But then sin came through Adam and Eve, and like a cancer, began to destroy the world.
It ruined peaceful relationships. It brought heartache and unhappiness. It brought death and and made humans slaves to the devil. Now, no matther how hard we try, we are going to sin. But that’s why God sent Jesus to rescue us.
Just like Mario went to battle against Bowser to save Princess Peach and all of Mushroom Kingdom, Jesus went to battle against the devil to save the human race and all the world. He dodged every temptation and lived perfectly. And he did it all for you.
He said “no” to all the times we say “yes” to temptation. Because of him, God sees us with a perfect record. So don’t try to fight temptation alone today. Bring Jesus with you. He has defeated all of the devil’s attempts and has uncovered all of his lies. He battled for you. You’re fighting from a position of victory already because of Jesus. Stay near Jesus today.
