Grace Abounded

 

Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more” (Romans 5:20 (NKJV). As we saw a couple of days ago, God gave the law to people who thought they could make it by obeying the law. The result according to Paul, sin abounded. The law caused them to sin because it told them what sin was. Tell someone not to do something, and what do they do? Give someone the law and what will they do? That’s why we needed a Savior who put us back under grace. Even in the darkest time of history, God still offered grace. “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD” (Genesis 6:8 NKJV). God offered Israel grace but they wanted law. Jesus came to offer grace once again. Through the finished work of Jesus, God offers us the full privileges of His grace and favor. Still people want the law. Grace super abounds over law.
