Adam gave us death; Christ gives us life


For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) Romans 5:17

Adam’s sin brought the reign of death over all of mankind for all are sinners. But those who receive God’s grace and imputed righteousness through faith in Christ Jesus will reign in life because of Christ’s obedience to God’s law in our stead and His innocent suffering and death for the sins of all.

Merciful Father, though I was born into this world dead in sin through Adam’s fall, grant me never-ending life through faith in Christ Jesus and His atoning sacrifice on the cross for the sins of all. Amen.
