Bible Reading: Romans 5:1-21
For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Romans 5:19
In our helpless state Christ died for us not because we are righteous but because of love. He is a faithful God. We were ungodly and not qualified for the Kingdom of God but in our mess, He sent Jesus to die in our place so that we can be saved. The kind of love we are enjoying today is amazing. We are justified through the blood of Jesus Christ. The fall of Adam made us be sinners, we all died in Adam as he disobeyed God. If sin came into the world through one man, that is how the gift of righteousness comes to man through Christ. The sin of one man brought condemnation to all while the obedience of Jesus Christ brought the gift of life for everyone who believes in Him. Paul put it this way “If by one man’s trespass, death reigns, through that one man, how much more will those who receive the overflow of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.” faith in Christ will bring grace and mercy to all who believe.
Prayer Point: Lord, thank you for the gift of righteousness we have through Christ
