I Corinthians 15:22 ” For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.”

Through the disobedience of the first Adam, sin raised its ugly head and the world was condemned to spiritual and eternal death and everlasting punishment and separation from God. To paraphrase Romans 5:14-18, Death reigned because of Adam’s trespass, but God’s grace came in the form of the second Adam, Jesus Christ, and with it the gift of salvation. For the first Adam brought condemnation, but the second Adam, Jesus, brought justification and a way back to God. Or as it tells us in verse 19 of Romans 5, “For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the One man the many will be made righteous.” Through the fault of the first Adam, the curse of sin and death came into the world…but God then sent His Son, Jesus, the second Adam, to atone for our sins and break off that curse…that we might be set free.
