“For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.” (I Corinthians 15: 22)
Adam’s destiny is death. That mortal sense of man born of dust and ending there, in the earth, is a deadly premise. It not only dooms man to a finite existence, a dark and gloomy end, it also darkens his days with the shroud of fear, lack of hope, apathy, and a life that reflects that false burden.
The birth and generation of Adam and his progeny is not our fate. We have the Christ-Truth. This is the true declaration of our independence from deathly living, life that is small and full of fear and resignation. The Adam-man is so focused on material generation that it neglects the law of regeneration, the renewal that Christ brings, the life that endures and is full of joy.
Cast off the shroud of Adam and his kin. This is not you. You are not ashamed, dirty, full of fear and braced for punishment. You are the very child of God’s love, His own spiritual expression, the very evidence of His presence. God is Life. You are His Life made known, eternal, pure, and never old or tapering off. God is infinite and eternal. This is your destiny and your glory. Deny the blame and punishment cast on Adam. You are not that man! You are alive and well and living in celebration of that wonderful fact of Life.
