Grace abounded all the more

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

What God has done and has given us is much more than to counteract sin. Christ did not repress or weaken sin – He destroyed it in Himself, so that we might know the power of Him in us. People have been tyrannised so long that they live looking over their shoulders, expecting sin to raise its ugly head. We need a long, steady realisation that the grace of Christ is much more than enough to deliver us”

~Les Wheeldon

What a word of dependence and victory.
