The Bible depicts Adam as the one who brought sin into the world and spread it to us all. Individually everyone falls short of God’s ideal and corporately we all contribute to the problem as well. But Paul wants to make clear that grace abounds more and more over sin. God’s grace does not just cancel out sin but is a power far greater than the power of sin in our life. If we receive death through Adam because of sin, we receive grace and eternal life through Jesus.
