Who do you belong to?

“With Him they also crucified two robbers, one on His right and the other on His left. So the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “And He was numbered with the transgressors.””

Mark 15:27-28 

Who do you belong to?

“Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life.”

1 Corinthians 15:22 NLT

Do you remember the show “The Adams Family”? They were the misfit family that lived in an old mansion on cemetery lane. Anyone who belonged to this family had an appearance of death. In some ways  they were the walking dead. 

Just like this family, we belonged to the first Adams family, the fallen Adam. This Adam sinned in the garden and death entered in to all humanity. We inherited the sin of the first Adam. We were the walking dead. 

But, there was a second Adam,  Christ. He died, was buried and rose again on the third day to defeat death and give us life. We belong to him by putting our faith in the second Adam, Jesus.
