It's Not Fair!
Our text for today is from Romans 5:15. But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
Our text is a great one today. It is also an unfair one as well, and thank God for it.
In this passage a unequal comparison is made between Adam and the Lord Jesus Christ. The offence that Adam makes and passes on to us is not the same deal that we get thru Jesus Christ.
Because of the offence of Adam we inherit a sin nature and die. He messed up and we all mess up as well. Then you would normally think that if Christ did right we would all do right as well, but we don’t. See the unequal comparison? We don’t do right but we that are saved still get the free gift of eternal life not by inheritance but by the grace of God.
Thank God for his Grace.
I’m glad that its sometimes unfair.
