He’s Your Ransom by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

He's Your Ransom by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

And all things are of God, who hath
reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ,
and hath given to us the ministry of
reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:18)

T
he underlined portion of the scripture above
shows that it was God who took the
responsibility of reconciling us to Himself. He
was the one behind all that Jesus Christ accomplished
for us. Actually, He was the one doing it. We see that in
2 Corinthians 5:19; it says, “To wit, that God was in
Christ, reconciling the world unto himself….”

It isn’t just that God loved us so much and sent
Jesus, but that He was actually doing everything that
had to do with man’s salvation by Himself. He was in
Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, not counting
their trespasses against them. Hallelujah! He took the
responsibility, and paid the full penalty for all your sins;
He’s not mad at you at all.

Even if you got into trouble for something that
you did wrong, He’s obligated to saving you, to helping
you out of any trouble, for one reason: because you
have a ransom in Christ Jesus!

This is why the birth of Jesus means so much
to us; He was born to live, die, and give His life as a
ransom for many: “For even the Son of man came not
to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his
life a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45).

The Bible says He chose us in Him, before the
foundation of the world, to be holy and without blame
before him in love (Ephesians 1:4). You’re holy and without blame before the Father, because Christ is your
ransom! He took responsibility for your sins. This is the
message of the Gospel!

No wonder He calls us His righteous ones; His
justified ones; meaning that we can’t be charged with
sin, because not only are we righteous, we have also
become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. 2
Corinthians 5:21 says, “For he hath made him to be sin
for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the
righteousness of God in him.”

PRAYER
Dear loving Father, thank you for expressing your
love through the sacrifice of Jesus in my behalf, by
which I’m presented to you faultless, holy, and
unblameable. Blessed be your Name forever!
