Vs. 12, “Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned.” Justification by faith is further explained in this chapter. We talked about Abraham and David in the previous chapter, and now we go back to the beginning with Adam. Adam’s sin would become ours as we were all affected by what happened. But Jesus would come and bring us salvation through one man. Death by Adam…life by Christ!
Regarding application…Jesus Saves. Vs. 8, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” While we were still sinners…He died for you and he died for me. There are many things that we need to remember in this life. Homework, Bills, deadlines at work, doing our QT’s, praying…but let’s not forget the most incredible fact: Jesus died for you. It is this very fact that has kept so many of us from drowning in the sea of life. Don’t let your heart be hardened by this world that forgets the magnitude of Jesus’ demonstration of love in our life!
