Faithful All Week.

March 6, 2017

The words from Romans on Sunday are a summary of the happy exchange.  Jesus takes our brokenness and sin, and in return we receive his healing and holiness:

 

Therefore just as one man's trespass led to condemnation for all, so one man's act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all.  For just as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's obedience the many will be made righteous. - Romans 5.18-19

 

Jesus' temptation becomes our victory.  Jesus' death becomes our life.  Jesus becomes for us a new Adam, that Jesus' might show us a new way to be a human being!

 

Read Romans 5:12-19 until the logic of the faith becomes a deeper part of your story.
