Romans 5:12-21

Lent 1 - Year A

Romans 5:12-21

A free gift following many temptations and transgressions is simply a free gift. It does not justify anything. It simply makes a next choice toward abundant life easier by showing a step can be taken where only quicksand was perceived to be. (ref verse 16)

Transgression occurred, with the result that the temptations multiplied; but where brokenness increased felt limitations, opportunity to choose living from abundance increased all the more. Just as temptation was followed by transgression, so an experience of abundance grows and grows and leads to participation in paradise right here, right now. (ref verses 20-21)
