 “Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgement came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.” (Romans 5: 18-19)

 Paul in his letter to the Romans reminds us of the source of sin and the only answer to make us right before a Holy God.

Yours in Christ,
