Cary Cox, from Romans 8:4. Why are we declared righteous in Christ? For what purpose are we not condemned? Paul shifts his focus from justification to sanctification; from our positional righteousness in Christ, to our practical obedience in this life, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Cary Cox, from Romans 5:12-21. What Adam brought to us affects us daily in a real and powerful way. We experience the effects of sin and death in our lives, and we cannot free ourselves from this evil master. But Christ has undone what Adam did, and those in Christ are under the reign of grace! The gospel makes a difference in our lives, now and forever!
