21 Days – Day 17

Leave a comment

I can’t believe it’s already day 17. This has been an extremely beneficial exercise and I’m looking forward to keeping with this habit as the 21 days expire.

Romans 5:17, “For if by the one’s sin, death reigned through the one, much more will the one’s who receive the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.

Once again, the contrast between death and life continues in verse 17. It will be interesting at the end of this chapter to do a full comparison between the two. It’s clear that there is a sharp difference between the curse and the gift of grace. Paul has actually used the phrase πολλῷ μᾶλλον (“much more”) four times in this passage. Clearly, he’s showing the greater magnitude at which grace reigns over curse, life over death, for those who have received the free offer of grace. There is hope in this world that seems to be falling apart with every story that hits the news. This hope is found only in the “One”, Jesus Christ.
