God’s design for us is that we live in perfect harmony with Him and that we live and move and have our very being in Christ, through Christ and for Christ. All that comes as a free gift. That free gift comes to us in love, with no strings attached, no requirements, no religious hoops we have to jump through – it is a wonderful, outrageous and dangerously free gift.

So, you see friends your favour before God and your right standing with God is not in any way determined by your personal performance – and just as well – because if it was, then your performance would have to be absolute 100% perfect, because even the tiniest sin would destroy you in the presence of God.

Your eternal relationship with God, has been secured by God Himself. He wouldn’t trust you with something so important to Him. On our smart phones and computers today, we have an option to reset the device and ‘restore factory settings.’ Well, that is exactly what God did for us and only God could do it. He restored our default settings; our original design; our intended purpose – and He did it all in and through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

This is the gospel! This is the Truth! Believe it, receive it and watch it transform your entire life. This is why every man, woman and young person on this planet pays homage to this Christ every time they write the date. This is why all our schools, our hospitals, our judicial system, our governments all have their roots in the community of faith which this one Man birthed when He allowed Himself to be nailed to a tree.

This is why all the armies that have ever marched; all the navies that have ever sailed; all the parliaments that have ever sat; all the kings that ever reigned put together, have not affected mankind on earth as powerfully as this one solitary life; the life of Jesus Christ.

When sin entered our perfect world, everything broke and all of creation has been groaning ever since to be put right – to be reset, rebooted, restored to its original purpose. Only the One Who made us and designed us could press that reset button and He did that through the most outrageous, unbelievable act of love and grace.

2 Corinthians 5:21  “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
