Which Adam are you?
Are you of dust or of Heaven?
How complete did Jesus make you from what He did on the cross and from His resurrection?
Are you a “was” or an “is”?
“So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. The first man was of the dust of the earth; the second man is of heaven. As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the heavenly man, so also are those who are of heaven.” – 1 Corinthians 15:45-48
Who was the first Adam? Who was the last Adam? Why does it matter?
The first Adam was the first man the first human creation that had a wonderful relationship with the Living God totally apart from law except for one tree!
The last Adam was the one and only restorer of that relationship which can only be restored because of a tree!
Why does this matter? In simple terms Jesus “fulfilled” the law which means He made it complete!
We are no longer under the curse that the first Adam brought into this world, we can now live in the “life-giving spirit” that only He can provide.
One Adam “was” the other Adam “is” but the real question is which Adam are you?
Adam 1 was based on effort and the sweat of His brow, he was shame based and couldn’t face God at times.
Adam 2 IS “Life-giving” and the ultimate demonstrator of Love, He came to earth so He could show us that Love and sacrifice Himself in order to allow us a way out from Adam 1.
Find a time and a place where you probably won’t be disturbed and take several deep breaths. With each exhale just relax into it a bit more, not by effort but just naturally. When you feel a bit more relaxed just breathe normally and:
Breathe in and say:
“God grant me”
Breathe out and say:
Practice this way to realize that the New Adam “IS” here and He can be in you!
