The Solution

For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man,

how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!

Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people,

so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people.

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 5:17-19 NIV)

Jesus redeemed Adam’s failure.  Adam and Eve’s sin brought death to the human race.  God has given us grace through the death of His son.  Sin brought condemnation to all.  The saving grace through Christ has given us life.  Through disobedience, Adam and Eve made us all sinners.  Through the obedience of Christ, we are made righteous.  What does all this mean?  Though we have inherited a sinful nature, we can receive righteousness because of the atoning gift that Christ has provided for us.  It is a gift.  There is nothing we can do to earn it.  All that is required of us is to just accept it.  Do it today!

Thank you Father, for the gift of life that you have provided for us through your son, Jesus.  Thank you Jesus for taking our sins upon you and giving us life eternal.  In the most precious name of Jesus, we pray, amen.
