The April Fools' Gospel
While Jesus was delivered over to death for your sins and was raised to life for your justification, you should still worry about un-confessed sin. Even though God speaks of your salvation as well as your inheritance by using the words, “imperishable,” “unspoiled,” and “fadeless,” you could be the first one to prove Him wrong. Just because you have peace with God through Jesus Christ doesn’t mean you shouldn’t see yourself as outside of Christ, and with a whole lot to fret and get busy about. Even though you’ve already been given absolutely everything for entirely nothing with God, you could still mess it up. Even though Christ will be of no value to you, you will be alienated from Him, and you will fall away from grace by attempting to earn and live for God’s approval by keeping the law, still there are a few ways that you could manage it. While the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death, you’ll still need to keep the Ten Commandments around to know how to live.
