Today’s devotion is based on Romans 5:17, “It is true that through the sin of one man (Adam) death began to rule because of that one man. But how much greater is the result of what was done by the one man, Jesus Christ! All who receive God’s abundant grace and are freely put right with him will rule in life through Christ.”
When Adam sinned, death entered the world. I am sure that he did not realize that his sin would result in the deaths of all people. His sin not only brought physical death into the world it brought spiritual death too.
Christ in his death and resurrection broke that cycle. While we still must die physical deaths those who believe in Jesus as their Savior no longer die spiritual deaths. For all who receive God’s abundant grace and are freely put right with him will rule in life through Christ.
Please pray with me the prayer for today. Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, you took away the burden of death from your people, Lord, and broke the cycle of sin. Keep me close to you, so that I may remain pure in your sight. All glory and honor are given to you. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
