Thoughts From A Recent Sermon...
A Greater Adam
Bro Josh Thilmony, 11/27/2016
Genesis 2.7 ...and man became a living soul.
This is one of the scriptures that Paul quotes when he compares Adam and Jesus. Romans 5.14 says that Adam is a figure of Christ. We know he had similarities with Jesus: he was a groom, his wife came from him, and he was a breadwinner. However, in this message we want to focus on how Jesus gave us better things than Adam.
Adam gave us death, but Jesus brought life. Romans 5 teaches us that one man brought sin and death into the world. We all died because we followed Adam's example and sinned against God. By one man also we found justification unto life. We found life when we decided to follow Jesus. Neither one was automatic: Adam did not make us die; rather, we chose to follow him. Thus, we died like him. Jesus did not automatically make everyone Christians. We chose to follow, and those who follow found life.
1 Corinthians 15.22 says that in Adam, all die. We could put our name in place of Adam. In Josh, all die. In myself, I have no life to give.
1 Corinthians 15.47 compares the earthy Adam to the heavenly Christ. Adam gave us earthly things. Jesus gave us heavenly things. Adam gave us shelter and worldly wisdom. Jesus gave us a temple built without hands and divine revelations.
Jesus gave us a promise of heaven. All the heavenly things we have now are just a small part of the full reward. When our faith becomes sight, we will have a greater reality in Christ. It is like a man I knew who received a $15000 advance on his inheritance so he could buy a truck. When his mother passed away, he received hundreds of thousands of dollars for his full inheritance. We just have a down payment right now. John said in 2 John 8 that we should look to ourselves and make sure we get a full reward.
