Romans 5:19 For just as through one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the obedience of One the many will be made righteous.

SIN THROUGH ADAM- (Disobedience) - Every human inherited sin from Adam when He disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden. Eternal death and separation from God was a FACT through Adam.
Let's check the BIBLE! Genesis 3:1-1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God said, ‘You shall not eat of any tree of the garden’?”
2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit from the trees of the garden; 3 but from the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You will not eat of it, nor will you touch it, or else you will die.’ ”
4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die! 5 For God knows that on the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
6 When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasing to the eyes and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she gave to her husband with her, and he ate. 7 Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. So they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.
8 Then they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9 The Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?”
10 He said, “I heard Your voice in the garden and was afraid because I was naked, so I hid myself.”
11 And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?”
12 The man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate.”
RIGHTEOUSNESS THROUGH CHRIST - (OBEDIENCE) Through the obedience of One (Jesus Christ) we ALL have been "REDEEMED" from the curse of sin by faith in God's atoning work at Calvary on our behalf.
The opportunity for humanity to be made right with God was made possible through Jesus Christ.
Romans 3:22-24 This righteousness of God comes through faith in Jesus Christ[a] to all and upon all who believe, for there is no distinction. 23 For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, 24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
There is no righteousness apart from faith in God for scripture declares in Hebrews 11:6- And without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Romans 5:1-2 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we also have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and so we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
2 Corinthians 5:21-God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Because of Adam's DISOBEDIENCE we ALL were born sinners.
Because of Christ OBEDIENCE His righteousness was imputed to us.
I thank God on today for His only Son, Jesus Christ who came down from heaven to earth to pay the sin debt I could not pay. Therefore, I have been made right with God through Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
As the song writer said: I HAVE BEEN REDEEMED!! Thank You Lord!
Living a life of willful sin? You are without excuse for God has made a way of escape for you by faith throughChrist Jesus.
If anyone of us die and our soul find hell as it's eternal destination, it is no one's fault but your own. We can not blame God or anyone else for God had a plan before the foundation of the world to save humanity and He fulfilled it when He kept His Word in sending Jesus to shed His blood as the ultimate sacrifice for the sins of humanity.
Have you accepted Christ on today by faith for the forgiveness of your sins? Do you know that He shed His blood and died for you too? WELL, HE DID!
Tomorrow is promised to no man! Life is short! Here today and gone tomorrow! Today is the day of salvation!
Sin entered into the world by one man, but THANK GOD that "SALVATION through Christ Jesus was and still is available to ALL of humanity.
The choice to live under Adam's curse or God's blessings is your's for the picking. God has already done what He is going to do as far as "Salvation" for humanity is concerned.
It only took one! It only takes one decision today! Choose ye this day whom you will serve!
Obedience or disobedience? Which have you chosen?
REMEMBER, IT ONLY TOOK ONE!
