Romans: Grace Reigns
When Paul speaks of salvation, he speaks in terms of the future. For the Christian we are saved, but not yet. Our salvation is not complete. By comparing and contrasting Adam and Christ, Paul is showing believers that we can have assurance in our salvation based on the superior work of Jesus Christ. If we are confident, that sin has brought death and untold devastation into the world. We can be even more confident that the grace of God in Christ that justifies us will also save us from God’s wrath in judgment.
