19 For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous.
This was the verse that spoke to me this morning in my reading. I have been struggling to write about it and I think I am resolved to just let it speak for itself. To me this verse is the essence of God’s reconciliation and divine consistency. One disobedient man causes all to fall and one obedient man provides a way for all to rise again.
Heavenly Father, thank you for your goodness and mercy. Thank you God that your ways are simple but yet have profound consequences. Thank you for your consistent application of commandment, justice, mercy, and grace. Thank you Lord Jesus for your obedience. We pray in your name. Amen.
