Review: Freely Receive All of God’s Blessings
Under the Old Covenant of The Law, righteousness was based on man’s obedience. Under the New Covenant, righteousness is based on the obedience of Christ. Believing in the work of Christ is what is called faith. Faith was not designed to be a barrier to God’s blessings. Instead, faith was supposed assure us that all of God’s promises were ours because it is an unbreakable covenant. Somehow, most teaching has made faith a difficult thing to “achieve.” If we have “enough faith” or “if we are obedient” then we will receive all of God’s blessings. This kind of teaching puts people back under the Old Covenant of the Law. We can never be sure of our blessings, because we can never be sure we believed enough or were obedient enough.
Romans 10:4 says, “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” Jesus has made us all righteous. We no longer have to earn the blessings of God by “being good enough.” Romans 5:17-19 tell us, “For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.” Adam’s sin made all men sinners. But on the other hand, Jesus’ righteousness qualified all of mankind to be made righteous.
This is the incredible gospel of Jesus Christ. Because God loved us so much, He sent Jesus to redeem all of mankind. Faith in Jesus makes you righteous and qualified for every blessing of God. Romans 8:31-32 says, “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” God is for us and will never be against us again. If God sent Jesus when we didn’t ask for Him, how much more will He freely give us everything else now that we have been made righteous and are part of God’s family? God wants us to be totally secure and assured of our New Covenant blessings.
Jesus’ obedience on the cross has purchased every victory and everything we will ever need in life. The enemy desperately tries to get you to look at your own obedience. This will always leave us anxious, insecure and depressed. The enemy tries to get you back under the Old Covenant of The Law. But thank God that all of God’s promises will always be “Yes and amen” for everyone that believes in Jesus. We have been made righteous by faith, which is simply belief in Jesus. Don’t make faith any more difficult than that. Everyone that came to Jesus’ freely received from Him. No one was ever left out for not having “enough faith.” Faith is not a barrier or hurdle to jump over in order to receive God’s blessings. Faith is simply looking to Jesus. If God gave us Jesus because of His love for us, He will also freely give us everything else. This includes your health, protection, provision, and everything you will ever need. Simply ask the Father and they will be given to you freely! Praise God!
