Devotion 9.19.16

All it takes is one domino to get millions to fall.  Watch this link to see just that (really, many of you will find it very interesting to watch).  As you watch, you note the initial domino creates a vivid pattern with almost thousands of other items, mostly dominoes, fall in patterns.

All it took for sin to spread throughout mankind for the history of mankind was one small act of disobedience to God as we find in Genesis 3 when Adam and Eve ate of the fruit God had said not to.  With that, sin and death spread throughout mankind.  We learn there is no such thing as "one small sin" in our own lives.

Paul writes in Romans 5 that "...just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin and so death spread to all men because all sinned...."  Yet, God overcomes that sin as Paul continues later in Romans 5, "Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for al men, so one act of righteousness leads to justifications and life for al men  For as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one's man's obedience the many will be made righteous."

We ask for forgiveness for our sins and lift thanks for being made righteous through Christ.

Hope Men's Ministry
