Sin came into the world by one man, Adam, and death came into the world through sin; death spread to all men because all men sinned; therefore death reigned from Adam to Moses. Death reigned through the one man, Adam (Romans 5:12-21).
But the free gift in the grace of the one man Jesus Christ abounded for many; how much more those who RECEIVE the abundance of grace AND the free gift of righteousness REIGN in life through the one man Jesus Christ (Romans 5:17).
God sent Jesus, the Word made flesh, the light of life, to save mankind from sin, the wages of sin is death, but when we come to Jesus and die to sin, death and the works of the devil, we can take the free gift of God: eternal life IN Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:22-23).
“We are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through Christ we have obtained ACCESS to this grace in which we STAND” Romans 5:1
“God’s Love is poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who is given to us” Romans 5:5
In fallen Adam, sin, death and the works of the devil reign. In Christ we receive the abundance of grace and free gift of righteousness to reign IN LIFE through the one man Christ Jesus.
“How can we who died to sin still live in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life” Romans 6:2-4
“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God who loves me and gave himself for me. I do not nullify the grace of God; for if justification were through the law, then Christ died to no purpose” Galatians 2:20-21
“Now that faith has come, we are no longer under a custodian; for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through faith. For as many of you are baptized into Christ have put on Christ…heirs according to the promise” Galatians 3:25-29
