Yay! We are already on our 3rd Romans Road post and we have already covered some ground (you can check out the first Romans Road post here and the second one here). Today’s verse is a bit of a downer, but just hang on because I guarantee that by the end of this series our verses will be uplifting and great!
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: - Romans 5:12 KJV
Yep, a little gloomy but so true. Our Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great- (add 50 more Greats) Grandfather was named Adam. Adam lived in a garden with his wife Eve and everything was perfect. The only rule was that they couldn’t eat the fruit of one tree. ONE tree. They could eat anything else that they wanted too, but that didn’t satisfy them. They wanted the fruit from that tree, so they ate it. And let me tell you, God was NOT happy. Adam and Eve were kicked out of the garden and the world has had a sin problem ever since. What is the punishment for sin? Death. Fortunately there is a cure for death. Come back the next few weeks and I will tell you what the cure is.
