“Since by the one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive the overflow of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.” – Romans 5:17
All who have repented of their sins and chosen to follow Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, have received an ‘overflow of grace.’ It does not matter what has happened in your life before that point, it does not matter what you have done, and it does not matter if you feel like you deserve it or not. You have been given enough grace to cover all of it.
The smallest drop of grace from Jesus is more than any of us would ever need, but we are told that we have been given an overflowing of it.
If you are struggling with sin, you have enough Grace from Jesus to grant you eternal life with your Lord. It is not just enough Grace to squeak by and cover your sins, it is more than enough to completely wipe them away. Are you feeling overwhelmed, is anxiety getting the best of you, is fear holding you back? By putting your faith in Jesus, you have been granted you an abundance of grace to carry you through this day and every day.
Grace Trumps Sin! The Grace given to us by our Lord is triumphant over ALL the sin in this world. Whether it is the sin we personally struggle with or the sin around us in the world we live in. The ‘overflow of grace’ given to us by our Lord is triumphant over all of it!
The sin and struggles released into this world by the first man, Adam, are more than covered by the Grace given to us by the death and resurrection of the Son of God.
Our Lord will give us more Grace than we need, our cups will overflow with Grace. Our temptations and problems will not disappear, they are still going to be there, but The Lord’s Grace will be more than we need to walk through them.
