Yes, Adam’s one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone. Because one person disobeyed God, many became sinners. But because one other person obeyed God, many will be made righteous. God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 5:18-21 NLT)

There is only one who can save us.

We come from a long line of broken people. We continue to be broken. We continue to fall short.

Yet, God’s grace continues to abundantly bless so many people. Because the perfect Son of God has come to not only teach us about God but to redeem us in his sacrifice, we are made whole. We are healed. We are The Lord’s. We are His.

Not by us. But for us.
