It’s No Ones Fault
For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ.
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
This basically explains how people become sinners and it will change our perspective of people, it’ll make us see them different, and it’ll also help properly guide our words when we preach the gospel.
We need to understand that it’s no ones fault that they are sinners. People are born sinners because of what one man Adam did. What Adam did affected the very nature of man, our key scripture makes it clear, that Adams one sin brings condemnation to every one. That’s why God asked Adam not to eat the fruit, it was not because God was craving obedience and respect, but it was because God knew the consequences of Adams action and the effect it will have on man.
The corrupt nature of man is what makes man carry out sin. God knows this, and that’s why when He sees man, He sees man through the lens of love. The devil put everyone in slavery, but in Christ we have been set free. We should see people with this same lens, that way we’ll treat them better, and we’ll preach better. We’ll focus not on the problem they cannot change, but on the solution that has been provided, that’s Jesus. Our key scripture said something very profound:
For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ
Do you see how beautiful the latter part is, it says “even greater” is Gods wonderful Grace. Even greater, hallelujah, we should focus on Gods wonderful Grace that’s even greater. Many people focus on sin as though sin is the most powerful element there is, but the word teaches us that even greater is Gods gift. Being born a sinner is not a choice, that’s why it’s bondage, you don’t choose it, but becoming a believer is a beautiful choice, that is far greater than the bondage we were put it.
See people how God sees them, and rather than condemn then, explain God’s love, and Gods gift of righteousness to them.
My eyes only Jesus and what He has done, and through that same lens I see people around me, amen.
