Scripture Of The Day: 33
New International Version
18 Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people. 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.
This scripture reminds us that Adam and Eve eating the fruit from the tree of knowledge resulted in all of humankind being condemned and cursed by God - that one act of disobedience by two people resulted in the fall of all humankind into sin and damnation
However, the sacrifice of one man through one act of painful selflessness enables us to be relieved from the weight of sin which we all bear as descendants of Adam and Eve, and also of the sin which we have accumulated in our own right as fallen beings
That man's name is Jesus Christ
