Deliverance From This Present Evil World

“Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:” Galatians 1:3-4

We live in a very evil world full of very evil people. Christ gave Himself for our sins that He might deliver us from this present evil world. A quick look at today’s headlines shows that the world is indeed an “evil world”.  I am very glad this world is not my home…I truly am just passing through. I have noticed the rich are as corrupt as the poor and maybe more so. The Apostle Paul did tell Timothy, “But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.”

Everyone outside of Jesus Christ is walking “according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience… fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind” and are by nature the “children of wrath”. Ephesians 2:2-3

There are only two ways, the broad way and the narrow way. There is no middle ground. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a ravening wolf in sheep’s clothing. {Matthew 7:13-15} You are either a child of disobedience and wrath or a child of God. “In this the children of God are manifest, {are made known} and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.” I John3:10

Salvation is deliverance. He “gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world”. Why then do people reject deliverance? Jesus said, “Men love darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.” People love their sin, their idolatry, their booze, their pornography, their dope, their greed, their fornication…they love darkness because their deeds are evil.

There is only one way to be delivered, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” {Acts 16:31}

The question of all questions is this, Have you been delivered?

Which road are you on?

Which course are you taking?

Are you a Child of God or a child of wrath?

Do you love this world or do you love Him?

He is a life and eternity changing Saviour.

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” Romans 5:8-10

This life is very short and I am glad that He has delivered me and given me a hope of eternal life.

How about you? Please do not go out into eternity without being reconciled to God. And do not put it off until tomorrow.
