“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. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous” Romans 5:15 & 19, NKJV.
I’m glad one man made everything alright. By one man Adam, sin entered into the world and death by it, but by one man Jesus, the gift of grace and righteousness now completely belongs you.
No matter what you’ve done, one man made you free. If by one man you had trouble, by one man you’ve been delivered and can overcome all trouble. By one man you became powerless, and now by one man you have power.
Adam brought the anchor to your sin, but now Jesus is the anchor of your righteousness–being right with God. The anchor of your salvation and redeemer. Where sin abounded, grace abounds much more. One man started it, but one man finished it. He paid your debt of sin for you. One man was a key that locked the door, but one man was the key that opened every door of God’s promises to you. You are free to be all that God has called you to be.
Prayer: Father, thank You for Your abounding grace. Thank you Jesus for redemption and righteousness. I stand in you without sin. You have made me free indeed. Help me to let go of everything behind me and press forward. I can reign in life through Christ. One man made everything alright. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
