Putting God's Word into Practice…

Romans 5:12-21

on August 23, 2012

*I was on family vacation for Romans 5-8 and believe it or not, we did not have access to a computer daily.  So in an effort to catch up, I am going to simply type up my notes from each day.*

Romans 5:20: Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but WHERE SIN INCREASED, GRACE ABOUNDED all the more.

During the first two days of vacation, I became concerned with my 8 year olds’ selfish, greedy heart.  I prayed fervently for God to give me direction on disciplining him correctly.  God gave me the verse above. It gave me great hope to know that God’s grace is bigger than his sinful heart and my sinful heart, too.  I need to pray for fervently and take every opportunity to magnify God’s grace to my son while training him. 

We all need God’s grace!  And His grace is huge enough to cover any and all sin.  When we really understand God’s grace it changes us.  We become humbly grateful for it.  The desire to sin becomes less appealing as we walk in His grace.

The only way to receive the FREE GIFT of grace is by believing that through the life of one man-Adam-we are all born sinful, and that through the death of one man-Jesus-all sin is atoned for.
