Today our Bible Reading also includes the second half of the explanation of Romans by the folks at The Bible Project. Check out that video below. They do a wonderful job showing how Paul weaves all the chapters together to tell the beautiful story of the Gospel.
This morning as I read chapter 5, I’m simply amazed at the grace of God. Sin entered the world through one man (Adam) and yet because of the grace of God, we are able to be justified of that sin by one man (Jesus). I love how Paul puts it in verse 19,
“For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.” – Romans 5:19
In the moments where I feel far away from God and more like Adam than like Christ – I love how Paul reminds me that, “where sin increased, grace increased all the more.” (5:20b) Thank you Lord, for your unconditional love and extravagant grace.
