The Gift of Righteousness
A Sermon on Romans 5:16-17
And the free gift is not like the result of that one man's sin. For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought justification. For if, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ. (ESV)
One offence and many offences; condemnation and justification; the reign of death; the gift of righteousness and our reign in life.
