Act Two!
"For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God's abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!" Romans 5:17

World history can be divided into two acts.  The first act brought separation from God due to the trespass of one man - Adam.   All humankind is under the reign of death. We are away from God.  We are unable to rectify the broken relationship in ourselves that we were made for. But Act One is not the end of the story!

There's good news, Act Two is a reality!  This Act brings the provision of grace and the gift of righteousness.  For the second man - Jesus Christ died on the cross for us to offer a  restored relationship. We can be restored to God by believing on and receiving Jesus by faith. (John 1:12)

The first act ended in defeat. The second act assures victory.  The first man failed.  The second man succeeded. 

I hope you are enjoying the all God has for you, made possible by the "Second Act".  Thank Him for His indescribable gift!

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23
