It is an interesting fact that in this day of godlessness and lawlessness so much is being said about what we all deserve! Ads in the newspapers and commercials on radio and TV ask:
“Don’t you deserve the very finest automobile?”
“Don’t your children deserve the best?”
“Doesn’t your baby deserve Pampers?”
Well, do you really deserve the finest car? Do your children deserve the best — always? And does your baby deserve Pampers? As to you and your children — including the baby, the Bible has something to say on this subject.
The Bible says that “by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men for that ALL have sinned [i.e., in Adam]” (Rom. 5:12). You and I were “in Adam” when he sinned. When he sinned, we sinned. Deny this and you might as well agree with the murderer who argued: “My feet and legs didn’t do it; my ears and nose didn’t do it; only my one hand and one or two other parts of my body did it, so the rest should go free.”
We believers in Christ should thank God that our blessed Lord took upon Him our just desserts when He died for our sins at Calvary. This is why God’s Word says:
“We declare, I say, at this time, His righteousness for the remission of sins… that [God] might be just, and the Justifier of him that believeth in Jesus.
“Where is boasting then? It is excluded” (Rom. 3:25-27). source
