Stop. See sin and death and experience the abounding free gift of grace which reigns through Jesus Christ.
I. Horrified at Death’s Reign (vv.12-14)
Unleashed through one man’s sin, spread to us all
II. Awestruck at the Free Gift (vv.15-17)
Two men, two actions, two results, two contrasts
III. Abounding in the Reign of Grace (vv. 18-21)
Through righteousness to life, through Jesus
“The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:56-57)
• Are you condemned by your own sin or someone else’s? Does it matter?
• How are you struck by words like ‘grace,’ ‘gift,’ ‘abound,’ ‘free’?
• How are we tempted to make Jesus’ gift something other than a gift?
• If grace reigns now, how does that impact your present life?
