Creative Studio Monday
Monday 13 April, 10:00am
Our virtual Creative Studio meets for a third podcast, led over Zoom. We hope it inspires you to create something!
We had a surprisingly large & international group today, welcoming back old friends, new ones, and even far-off ones from Singapore! With a very reflective sharing from Martin.
12 Well then; it was through one man that sin came into the world, and through sin death, and thus death has spread through the whole human race because everyone has sinned.
13 Sin already existed in the world before there was any law, even though sin is not reckoned when there is no law.
14 Nonetheless death reigned over all from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sin was not the breaking of a commandment, as Adam’s was. He prefigured the One who was to come . . .
15 There is no comparison between the free gift and the offence. If death came to many through the offence of one man, how much greater an effect the grace of God has had, coming to so many and so plentifully as a free gift through the one man Jesus Christ!
16 Again, there is no comparison between the gift and the offence of one man. One single offence brought condemnation, but now, after many offences, have come the free gift and so acquittal!
17 It was by one man’s offence that death came to reign over all, but how much greater the reign in life of those who receive the fullness of grace and the gift of saving justice, through the one man, Jesus Christ.
18 One man’s offence brought condemnation on all humanity; and one man’s good act has brought justification and life to all humanity.
19 Just as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by one man’s obedience are many to be made upright.
Romans 5:12-19 (New Jerusalem Bible)
