"Adam's Sin versus God's Grace"

“Adam’s Sin versus God’s Grace"

Everyone was going to be punished because Adam sinned.  But because of the good thing that Christ has done, God accepts us and gives us the gift of life.  Adam disobeyed God and caused many others to be sinners.  But Jesus obeyed and will make many people acceptable to God.        Romans 5:18-19

The very crown of God’s creation, Adam, brought a sinful nature into the hearts of ALL mankind by his act of disobedience to God, with the first sin committed by the first man.  And judgment and condemnation came upon mankind.  Sin brought death into the world, both physical and spiritual death came upon mankind.  Even though there was no record of sin, because there was no Law, death still had power over all who lived from the time of Adam to the time of Moses. 

The Law was given so that the full power of sin could be recognized.  But even though the Law pointed out the sin, it did NOT take away the sin.  And everyone was going to be punished because of their sinful nature brought about by Adam’s sin.  But more powerful than sin is the undeserved grace of God Almighty. 

Now ALL mankind has the opportunity to come before the Almighty Judge and be ‘SET FREE’ from the sentence of death, because of the OBEDIENT ACT of one man, Jesus Christ, who took on the sins of ALL mankind and paid the price for the undeserved grace of a HOLY, RIGHTEOUS, God.  And through that act we are made RIGHTEOUS in God’s sight.  But ONLY if you receive the gift of UNDESERVED GRACE. 

Through the DISOBEDIENCE of ONE man, Adam, came the sinful nature of ALL mankind accompanied with the condemnation and judgement of death upon ALL of God’s creation.  Through the OBEDIENCE of ONE man, Jesus Christ, came God’s gift of undeserved grace and eternal life in Heaven. 

If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to God and are facing His condemnation and judgment, you have the opportunity NOW to accept His undeserved grace and turn away from your sins and receive eternal LIFE, by:  Confessing your sins to God and asking Him for His forgiveness, believing with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is alive in Heaven making intercession for you, before God, then accept His gift of salvation and be made righteous before Him.  Do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
