From today’s Reading (Romans 5:12,15,17-21)
‘As by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by one man’s obedience many will be made righteous.’
In today’s reading St Paul describes how Jesus came to undo all the evil that exists in our world. In the passage we have picked out, above, he talks about the disobedience of Adam and the subsequent fall, and how all that was lost has been recovered by Jesus on the Cross. Jesus’ obedience to the Father in doing His Will and not his own has saved all of us. Yet, we still have the option to trust in that saving grace or to reject it.
Put simply, we are saved if we want to be saved. Jesus has done what he can for us. He underwent the most horrific pain and suffering on the Cross so that we may live. Not just live here on earth; but to live for all eternity! Jesus suffered and died so that we can live forever and ever with the Father.
Only one person has ever been born to die. That person was Jesus. And he did it for you.
