THE SECOND ADAM
All men and women are descended from the first Adam – in the natural world. We follow his sinful ways until we meet the second Adam, Jesus Christ, and accept Him as our leader and representative before the Father – in the spiritual world.
How joyful our lives would be if that were the end of the matter. But it isn’t. You know it isn’t, as you struggle through each day trying to stay near Jesus. One minute you’re following Jesus, and then a driver cuts you off in traffic and you seethe with Adam’s anger. We all need to be better at following Jesus more often. That’s what’s called working out our own salvation.
