A God You Can Approve? by Pastor Melissa Scott

We live in an age where everybody wants to create a God they can approve, but the facts are, that if God exists, it is more important to be on His side than it is for me to somehow make Him conform to my opinion. I learned a while back that if God existed at all, I had better get on His side. God is not shaking at all over my opinion. If He doesn’t exist, don’t mess with it; but if He does, this is His Word and He says the ultimate proof of God’s right to put everybody in one man is what happened after Adam. Did they die? They sure did: all of them are dead. Go find one of them still living; they’re all dead.

Therein is the proof, God can just bundle us all up and put us in one man.  In Adam, for one’s sin, He could let us all die; now for the life and death of One, He can put us all in Christ, and treat us all as dead on the cross, and now let us live in Him. It is an act of grace.
