SOS - Who We Really Are

"The S.O.S files are part of what I call THE S.O.S ADVENTURE. My concern is to help those on the field, by visits, written communications. It’s not a program or a separate ministry. It’s to help compliment what you are doing on the field. S.O.S stands for SOLD OUT ON SERVICE. " Rev. Robert (Bob) Vignola

Who We Really Are

Romans 5:14-17 (The New English Bible)
14 But death held sway from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned as Adam did, by disobeying a direct command – and Adam foreshadows the Man who was to come.

15 But God’s act of grace is out of all proportion to Adam’s wrongdoing. For if the wrongdoing of that one man brought death upon so many, its effect is vastly exceeded by the grace of God and the gift that came to so many by the grace of one man, Jesus Christ.

16 And again, the gift of God is not to be compared in its effect with that one man’s sin; for the judicial action, following upon the one offence, issued in a verdict of condemnation, but the act of grace, following upon so many misdeeds, issued in a verdict of acquittal.

17 For if by the wrongdoing of that one man death established its reign, through a single sinner, much more shall those who receive in far greater measure God’s grace, and His gift if righteousness, live and reign through the one man, Jesus Christ.

This section is within the heart of the epistle of Romans. The thrill of these truths electrify me, just as they did 42 years ago when I first heard it read from The New English Bible.

The VERDICT IS OUT, COMPLETE ACQUITTAL! What an Attorney we have! Just as if we never sinned!

And now we live and Reign, through that One Man, Jesus Christ!

That’s our IDENTITY, That’s the Real you!

Believing anything else is to accept a lie. Believing who you are in Christ, puts you on top, more than a conqueror.
