Grace Overflows

Romans 5 compares the one man Adam to the God-man Jesus Christ.

By one man sin entered into the world bringing death to all men.
By Jesus Christ came the grace of God as a gift to all men.

Through the one transgression condemnation came to all.
Through the righteous act, acquittal and life came to all.

Through the disobedience of one man all were made sinners.
Through the obedience of one, many will be made righteous.

In conclusion: where sin increased grace overflowed all the more. Sin brought death but grace brought eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
