Sin no longer reigns…

Romans 5:12-21

Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned—  (For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many.  And the gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned. For the judgment which came from one offense resulted in condemnation, but the free gift which came from many offenses resulted in justification. For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)

Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.

 Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,  so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

one brought sin, One brought redemption.

one disobeyed, One obeyed.

The act of one brought condemnation, the act of One brought pardon.

The consequence of one was death, the consequence of One brought life.

Enter sin through disobedience;

Enter redemption through obedience.

Condemned; pardoned.

Death defeated death: life gave life.

through one man sin entered the world,

through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came

by the one man’s offense many died,

through one Man’s righteous act (…)the gift of righteousness will reign in life

through one man’s offense judgment came

through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came (…) – eternal life .

where sin abounded,

grace abounded much more,

as sin reigned in death,

so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life

Can we say thank you!?

  1. Yes, I can say, “Thank you!” such a wonderful and free gift, wasn’t it Gracie? Thanks for post. To let you know you did not show up on my reader today. That is why I stopped by to check on you to see if all was okay. I have a meeting tonight but will check again when I get in and let you know if it is there. God Bless, SR

  2. Hey Gracie,

    I checked my reader when I got home and you are still not in it. I will let you know tomorrow if you show up. Am I still shown as a follower on your blog list of followers? Let me know if I am not and I will re-follow. If this continues you need to go to WP as this is the only way we have to “follow” your post. I had a bunch of problems yesterday. God Bless, SR
