Quote: Adam 1 or Adam 2

~ Which Adam Is Your Father? ~

Do you know how to make your life have its greatest meaning?

The following is an excerpt from a book.

As a member of fallen mankind you naturally follow your father the First Adam. God wants you to turn from your sin and follow His Son the Second Adam. Your Father desires that you turn your focus from yourself and toward your Bridegroom, Jesus Christ.

As one who has knelt at the cross, the proper focus of your life is in doing the will of God which includes surrendering Lordship of your life to His Son, especially when doing so conflicts with your own desires. Are you living by the principle, “not my will, but Yours be done”? (See Luke 22:42-43.) Is Jesus Christ truly the Lord of your life? 

This is the principle of the cross—the principle of accepting those things in your life that fulfill the will of God which you would not choose. Rather than a rare occurrence, this is the choice you are confronted with many times each day. “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me” (Luke 9:23-24).

Many of the choices you are called to make will involve self-denial and the taking up of your cross. In making the right choices you bring glory to God.

There is no greater meaning and purpose to your life than being God’s person doing God’s will. Isn’t it strange how you tend to cling to your own little life—even long after life has turned sour! Jesus offers us something far better, the unsurpassed exhilaration of knowing you have done the will of God—you have done what you were specifically created to do!

~ from “THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH: Understanding God’s Will for You” by Robert Lloyd Russell, pgs 141-142 (ISBN: 9781606474303)
