We often smile at such innocent lie but Dan’s lie displays our innate tendency to sin. No one was taught to lie ever since they were a child. Paul recognises this tendency to sin by stating in Romans 5: 12 - when Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned.
Adam brought death and sin unto our path but Jesus gave us hope. He has redeemed our sins; Jesus is in favour to lavish us abundant grace instead of the punishments we deserve due to our innate aptness to sin. Adam’s sinful nature manifested to everyone in his lineage but the good news is what Christ Jesus has done for us on the cross has also redeemed us wholly.
Christ’s sacrifice has enabled us to receive a life of abundant forgiveness and grace. Come to the Lord in repentance and in faith and let the Lord strengthens you to win over the hold of any sins in your life.
Romans 5: 12 – 21
Just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead.
