Christians are the most fortunate set of people on earth, they are fortunate to enjoy salvation of Jesus Christ by grace. Meanwhile, God’s children that lived during Old Testament era longed to experience Messiah’s grace of salvation, but they were not so fortunate!
In fact, God’s glory that Moses witnessed on the mounts cannot be compared with Jesus’ glory that will materialize in the lives of Christians.
The scripture explained,
“But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious? For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness exceeds much more in glory” (2 Corinthians 3:7-9).
Lesson on Privilege of Christian
Every Christian should congratulate him or herself for being a treasured child of God! We Christians are the most fortunate ones selected by God to partake in dimensionless grace of Jesus Christ.
We are saved by grace, we live by faith, and we will go to heaven to enjoy everlasting goodness of the Lord. In fact, Christians will be more honorable than angels when will get to heaven (1 Corinthians 6:3).
Nothing thrills more than the pleasurable opportunity that Christians will have to accompany Jesus wherever he goes when we get to heaven! Meanwhile, non-Christians (unbelievers) will have direct opposite experience. Since they deny Jesus, they cannot enjoy his grace.
The Savior will not consider them as one of his own; therefore, Satan will claim them and hurl them to his final destination – which is hell fire. Hence, it is important that all people confess their faith in Jesus Christ so that they can escape horror of hell but enjoy everlasting grace and joy of Jesus Christ in heaven.
