Is It Fair?
Application: Why do we have to pay for what Adam and Eve did in the garden? Have you ever thought about that? Well, what is fair about Jesus having to pay for what Adam did? In Adam we all sin but we didn't have to pay because Christ paid for all our sin. This is grace.
1. When does a person become a sinner?
A person does not become a sinner by committing sins but rather commits sins because he is by nature a sinner. A person does not become a liar when he tells a lie; he tells a lie because his heart is already deceitful. A person does not become a murderer when he kills someone; he kills because his heart is already murderous.
2. What is the result?
3. God offered the free gift to a sinful man.
Greater even than God’s hatred of sin is His love for the sinner.
4. He reversed death and brought restoration.
Jesus Christ not only reversed the curse of death by forgiving and cleansing from sin but provided the way for redeemed men to share in the full righteousness and glory of God
