In which race do you find your place?
How many races are represented in the world? Two: Those who are still in Adam and those who are still in Christ. In Adam’s fall we sinned all. Adams fall was no arbitrary breaking of a rule, but an act that initiated a rebellion and revolution against God that not only fractured the relationship with God but also the relationship with one another. Adam represented us, and therefore we all sinned, inheriting the sin nature and the guilt from Adam. The “last Adam” is better than Adam. He’s better in consequences. Adam brought death and condemnation where as Christ brings the abundance of grace and justification. There are also differences in magnitude. In Christ we are not merely removed from death row but we also become royalty, joint heirs with Christ. In which race do you find your place? What each man did impacts all that are in them. In Adam we are condemned without having done the deed that leads to our condemnation, but in Christ we are justified without the obedience that leads to our salvation. Who is your Adam? Who is representing you? You can listen to this message on Romans 5:12-21 by Pastor Mike HERE!
