God’s Claims on Your Life (2)

God’s second claim on your life is Calvary. The story’s told of two friends who went to law school. One became a judge; the other became a law breaker and ended up in court. Guess who was sitting in the judge’s seat? His friend. So how could the judge be merciful, yet still be just? Taking off the black robes of justice, he walked over to the dock where the prisoner stood and said, ‘Not only am I this man’s friend, today I’m his saviour. I will stand chargeable with all his debts.’ At the cross, God took all your sin and put it on Christ’s account, and took all Christ’s righteousness and put it on your account. And the moment you trust Christ as your Saviour you’re no longer under the sentence of death. The value of something is determined by the price a buyer is willing to pay for it. At Calvary God said, ‘This is how much I love you!’ Your Creator became your Redeemer. ‘The Maker of the universe, as Man for man was made a curse. The claims of law that He had made, unto the uttermost He paid.’

To fulfil His purposes in the earth, God always had a man. To deliver the Israelites from Egypt, He used Moses. To challenge the prophets of Baal, He used Elijah. But when it came to your salvation, God ‘saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor; therefore His own arm brought salvation…’ (Isaiah 59:16 NKJV). The good news is: When God could not find a man, He Himself became a man; that we who are the sons of men, might become the sons of God. Awesome!

Let's make a start. I am a Christian but I guess that's pretty obvious. I am a gardener, builder by trade. I live in the Black country. I love 50s 60s 70s and 80s music. I play guitar and sing. I do open mic nights, I love growing veg and flowers, but I don't eat the flowers. Well I eat cauliflowers but that's not the same. If you need a good Gardener/bricklayer/landscaper and plasterer, not all in one go of course then contact me. My business is Dedicated In Gardens or D.I.G. Do you get it! Or do you dig it? johnkarlw@gmail.com

      Thanks Vicki, totally agree, life without purpose is meaningless, life without meaning is purposeless! It’s so great that we have a God of purpose and who gives us purpose! I pray He’ll continue to give you amazing divine appointments so you can continue to fulfil your God designed purposes. John 🙂
