ARE YOU IN ADAM OR ARE YOU IN CHRIST?

First Adam vs. Last Adam

 

In the Bible, Paul called Jesus the “Last Adam” because he is the remedy for idolatry and the redeemer of humanity, where as the first Adam was the source of idolatry and the down fall of humanity.

The first Adam turned from the Father in a garden; the last Adam turned to the Father in a garden.

The first Adam was naked and unashamed; the last Adam was naked and bore our shame.

The first  Adams sin brought us thorns; the last Adam wore a crown of thorns.

The first  Adam substituted himself for God; the last Adam was God substituting himself for sinners.

The first Adam sinned a ta tree;the last Adam bore our sin on a tree.

The first  Adam died as a sinner;the last Adam died for sinners.

 

According to the Bible,we die in Adam but are born again in Christ: “For as in Adam we all die,even so in Christ all shall be made alive”.

In Adam there is condemnation, but in Christ there is salvation.

In Adam we receive a sin nature, but in Christ we receive a new nature.

In Adam were cursed, but in Christ were blessed.

In Adam there is wrath and death, but in Christ there is love and life.

ARE YOU IN ADAM OR IN CHRIST?
This is incredibly important because, literally, your identity and your eternal destiny hang in the balance of whether you’re in Adam or you’re in Christ. You’re born in Adam as a sinner and you’re born again in Christ, who is the Saviour.

None of us are individuals alone. None of us are isolated. None of us stand alone. We’re part of one of two groups, one of two families, one of two teams, one of two nations: those who are in Adam, and those who are in Christ. Here’s how Paul says it in 1 Corinthians 15:21–22. “For as by a man came death,” that’s Adam, “by a man has also come the resurrection of the dead,” that’s Jesus. “For in Adam,” there’s one team, one group, one category, “all die”, but in Christ,” (here’s today’s big idea), “in Christ shall all be made alive.”
