Topic: More than a prophet, Christ man’s ransom part 2
Text : Job 33:22-24; Psalms 4:7-8 Mark 10:45; 1 Timothy 2:5-6
Memory Verse. Matthew 20:28(ESV). Even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.
We’re just a week after Easter and still in its celebration mood. Man indeed needed a ransom so desperately as we pointed out last week since he could not redeem self. Jesus thus became the only acceptable qualified ransomed who offered Himself for humanity freely. He indeed came to serve on earth and not to be served.. He became man’s only mediator between God and humanity (us) as seen in one of our text above. Titus 2:14 also says Jesus gave Himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession who are zealous for good works. So glad for knowing Christ created us for good works. Ephesians 2:10. Therefore as new creation in Christ Jesus, please check for yourself your new status in Him from the text below as I quote.
1 Corinthian 1:5-6(ESV) version. That in every way you were enriched in Him in all speech and all knowledge, even as a testimony about Christ was confirmed among you.
