Who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

(Galatians 1:4-5)

Paul speaks of Jesus as the one who gave himself for our sins, setting us free from this present evil age. The present evil age is not just the world around us, it is also the world inside of us. It is the will of the Father that his son gave his life for us.

We do not like talking about sin. But sin is more lethal than any other illness or virus. Sin is falling short of the mark, at its core is death, rebellion and disobedience. It is a disease inherited by all human beings and its only remedy is deliverance and forgiveness that Jesus provides.

Paul wrote on another letter that we all have fallen short of the Glory of God and it is that Glory that Jesus reclaimed back. Glory is the substance of God’s presence and deeply seated within the mystery of the Gospel and it is in the Gospel that God’s Glory is revealed. We also carry his Glory, we were created for his Glory, to be light exposing this evil age for what it is, dark.

I can only speak for myself, I have witnessed the powerful force of this Deliverer. He changes lives and brings forgiveness and freedom. Because of him the wages of sin, which is death has no longer any claim on me.

Lord, forgive me, come into my heart, live in me and I will taste and see how good you are.
