Adam sought to begin the reign of humans, but he launched the reign of death.
Even though death reigns, there is hope. Human beings are still made in the image of God.
Even though death reigns, there is hope. God wants us to call out to Him for rest and relief.
God stymied death for Enoch. Jesus Christ defeated death.
God stymied death for Enoch. Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection dealt with your sin and mine.
Only Enoch benefited from his deliverance. The benefits of Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection were always meant to be given to all who asked with humble faith.
Enoch’s deliverance gave a glimmer of hope. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is God’s vindication of the person and work of Jesus as humanity’s true hope.
“For I am not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes….” Rom. 1:16
Father in Heaven, please pour out the Holy Spirit upon me, and make me a disciple of Jesus gripped by the Gospel, living with hope as I live for Your glory. In Jesus Name, AMEN.
