Sunday Morning Sermon Audio – Overabounding Grace | Romans 5:12-21 (Steve Wainright)
“Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” -Romans 5:20-21

The law causes sin to increase. The law cannot change a person’s heart. The law shines the light on your disobedience. Sin might bring pleasure for a season, but what sin is actually doing is working death in you.
The grace of God is greater than all our sin. Where sin was overflowing, grace overflowed exceedingly above and beyond. If you believe He died for your sins, there should be nothing in your past that can haunt you. It’s not about where you’ve been, but where you’re at.

Scripture at Sunrise 4.2.2012

Sunday Morning | Bro. George Sledd | “One Day He Died for Me” | Romans 5:6-11
“For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.” -Romans 5:6

Jesus came into the world to die for sinners to demonstrate God’s love for us. Our central message is not “Love people,” though that is good. It is not to support a particular political party and agenda. Our central message is that Christ died on the cross to save guilty sinners.

We are saved from wrath through Christ! My salvation rests in Jesus’ blood.

Scripture at Sunrise 5.7.09

“Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men.” –Romans 5:18

“The voice that spells forgiveness will say: ‘You may go: you have been let off the penalty which your sin deserves.’  But the verdict which means acceptance [justification] will say: ‘You may come; you who are welcome to all my love and my presence.’ “

—Sir Marcus Loane, quoted in John Stott, The Message of Romans (Downers Grove, Ill: InterVarsity Press,  1994), 110

Scripture at Sunrise 4.23.09

“Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.”  -Romans 5:9

“Our deliverance from the law is a rescue from its curse and its bondage, and so relates to the two particular functions of justification and sanctification. In both areas we are under grace, not law. For justification we look to the cross, no the law, and for sanctification to the Spirit, not the law. It is only by the Spirit that the law can be fulfilled in us.”

—John Stott, The Message of Romans (Downers Grove, Ill: InterVarsity Press,  1994)

Scripture at Sunrise 3.17.09

Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more…”  -Romans 5:20

While the men had their morning meditations today, I had the privilege of reading Romans 5.  I don’t think there was a better way to start my day!  I encourage you to read Romans 5 today, reflect on your sinfulness and treasure the grace of God!  That is all.
