For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
-Adam had power over death through obedience. Jesus (the Word) became man (flesh) & dwelt among us so that by keeping His Word we reign in life through Him.
-All firstborn of man & animals belong to God & were redeemed by either paying in cash or by lamb respectively/ If a man became poor & sold his property his relatives would help him redeem his property otherwise he would repossess it in the year of jubilee/ Jesus redeemed us from the power of the grave & death/ We should stay awake in Christ & live with vision redeeming time/ Through Christ we have grace, the gift of righteousness & eternal life.
Lord our redeemer, we humbly come before You in humility asking for Your forgiveness for all our sins & Your help in transforming our evil thoughts. May we live in Your purity, righteousness & grace always so that we may have life abundantly. Amen
Our Father who at in heaven, hallowed be thy name..
