      • Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin;
      • and so death passed upon all men, for that, all have sinned:
    • Rom 5:13
      • Sin was in the world: but sin is not known when there is no law.
    • Rom 5:14
      • Nevertheless, death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.Whether we know or not, the truth will rule. The consequence of sin, death, rules even before the law was given.
  • Jesus' death brought life to allSalvation is a free gift
    • Rom 5:15
      • But not as the offense, so also is the free gift.

      • the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.

      • For if by one man's offense death reigned by one;
      • much more they which receive abundance of grace
      • and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.
  • The Same Principle of Spreading

      • even so by the righteousness of one, the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
    • Rom 5:19
      • For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners,
      • so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
    • Rom 5:20
      • Moreover, the law entered, that the offense might abound.
      • But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:Grace overpower sins. No one can say he is beyond salvation.
  • Grace is greater than SinEternal life over death
    • Rom 5:21
      • That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so, might
      • grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
  • Summary
    • Christ died for us while we were yet sinners. He accepted us despite our sins.
    • But He loves us too much to leave us enslaved by sins and so give us the grace power to overcome sin.
