Abounding Grace Booklet
The Bible Study Hour
Where sin increased, grace increased all the more, so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 5:20-21 KJV).
The last two verses of Romans 5 are among the truly great verses of the Bible. In the midst of a book in which every sentence is great, Romans -21 stands out like a brilliant beacon on a dark night. The dark background is sin and its horrible proliferation in the world. But the beacon flashes brightly.
This is the climax of a passage that contains a greater concentration of the word grace than any other similar passage in the Bible—five times in verses 15-21.
