Reflection: The Rt. Rev. Duncan M. Gray, III, Bishop of Mississippi (Res.) Chair, Board of Directors, The Gathering of Leaders
Paul is using an analogy to describe the origin of sin in creation (Adam) and the source of redemption and grace (Jesus). The details of how all of this weaves together is terribly important for Paul’s theological construct, but less so for me. My hope is in his proclamation that “where sin increased, grace abounded all the more...”. In other words, grace wins - always. That is the word I need to hear, today and always.
