But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many (Rom. 5:15).
The plight of humanity was sealed by only one act of sin which Adam and Eve committed. We all became infected and are pathological sinners without any remedy from us. An outside intervention became necessary. God’s grace was abundantly showered on us through Jesus Christ. This grace covers not just one sin of a person or two but many sins of many people. We are forgiven and cleansed from all unrighteousness. Hallelujah! Only God can turn a bad situation to yield an outcome that outweighs the original condition. God makes saints out of sinners, Children out of rebels, friends out of enemies, and so on. Where sin abounds, grace abounds even greater. That is not a license to sin; to the contrary, it is a call to reject sin and embrace holiness out of reverence for God.
