Thought It, Wrought It, and Brought It

Monday, May 4, 2015

“[Jesus of Nazareth] Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it” (Acts 2:23,24 KJV).

As a dear brother of old wrote, “Salvation—God thought it, God wrought it, and God brought it!”

Using his brain of mind-boggling capabilities and ingenuity, man has devised various gadgets, systems, and machines. However, about the eternal penalty of his sins, mankind is at a loss for thoughts. No human mind could have devised the plan of salvation as found in the Holy Bible. In fact, mankind in his natural state is unaware that he is even lost. He is too prideful to admit that he needs his Creator to also be his Saviour. “I am doing the best I can! I am not that bad! I am better than so-and-so, blah, blah, blah….”

We are “doing the best we can?” That ought to make us stop and think… our “best” is riddled with flaws, so will God accept “our best” or will He only accept absolute perfection? We are “not that bad?” Then Jesus Christ wasted His life and death, and God the Father wasted His Son! “I am better than so-and-so.” Sure, we may be “better” than other sinners, but whether a sinner with “much” sin debt or a sinner with “some” sin debt, the sin debt is still there. Whether big or small, any sin debt prevents entry into God’s heaven!

Israel and Rome wanted to get rid of Jesus Christ, and yet, in God’s knowing beforehand, He had Jesus Christ come to Earth so that when they would put Him to death, His death would be the fully satisfying payment for our sins. Jesus Christ suffered and died for us, and was raised again. He then commissioned the Apostle Paul to preach to us Gentiles that wonderful message of Calvary: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31).

He thought it for us, He wrought it for us, and He brought it to us! 🙂

Christian ambassador (Shawn Brasseaux)

Grace and peace! What a privilege to be an ambassador for the risen Christ here on WordPress! I am a Pauline dispensationalist Christian saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus plus nothing! My goal is to "have all men saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:3,4). I seek to preach Jesus Christ crucified for our sins, buried, and raised again for our justification as the only way to salvation. Also, I seek to edify and perfect the saints using dispensational Bible study and the Authorized Version King James Bible!

  1. This commentary is SPOT ON! Especially the part about so many headed for Hell whom will say: “I’m not bad, or so and so is worse, or I am good etc. etc”.
