Actions And Results
On November 24, 1971, a man known today as D. B. Cooper hijacked a commercial flight between Portland and Seattle by threatening to blow up the plane unless he received $200,000. After landing to receive a ransom, he ordered the plane back into the air. Then the rear stairs of the 727 aircraft were lowered, and he parachuted into the night. He was never captured, and the case is still unsolved. This act hastened the age of airport security in which trust and confidence have been replaced by suspicion and fear. What he did affected us all.
The Bible describes two actions that changed the world in a far more significant way. Through Adamís choice, sin and death entered the world, ďand thus death spread to all men, because all sinnedĒ (Rom. 5:12). But through Christís sacrifice on the cross, God provided a remedy for the results of sin. ďThrough one manís [Adamís] offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Manís [Christís] righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of lifeĒ (v.18).
Christ did what no one else could do when He broke the power of sin and death by His resurrection. He offers forgiveness and eternal life to all who will accept His gift. And for that, we thank Him with all our hearts.
When Adam sinned, death spread to alló
One act condemned the human raceó
But Jesusí death upon the cross
Provides mankind Godís saving grace. óSper
The cross of Christ can cure the condemnation of Adamís choice.
