Mornings With God

June 29

Consequently, just as condemnation for all people came through one transgression, so too through the one righteous act came righteousness leading to life for all people. — Rom 5:18 NET

All grace and good come to us through Jesus Christ. Through one man sin entered into the world. When Christ came He gained the victory of life. So now, through Him, all that is holy, true, and good comes to all who accept Him.

There is no other one through whom we can get blessing. Without Christ even earth’s sweetest joys have no power to give us enduring happiness. But when we have Christ, everything is enriched. The world grows more beautiful. The common blessings of the common days come from His hand and have new sweetness in them. Our daily bread is more sacred by being His gift to us. Every flower we see by the wayside suggests to us some thought of Him.

But the best blessings that come through Christ are the things of grace, heavenly good things. These are eternal, and we should never lose them. We need only to make sure that we accept Christ and His redemption, and then all things shall be ours in Him.
