2 Samuel 12:1-31; Habakkuk 3:1-19; Romans 16:1-27

By one man sin entered into the world. Romans 5:12
The gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ.
Romans 5:15

Two entirely opposite threads—each traced back to one man.
One man, Adam, brought sin through his disobedience and all
were made sinners. One Man, the Lord Jesus, brought grace and
died to put away sin by His obedience. He gave Himself a ransom
for all (1 Tim. 2:5-6), to make them righteous and that includes you
and me. Do you believe this? —K. C. Ung

I saw One hanging on a tree, in agony and blood,
Who fixed His languid eyes on me, as near His cross I stood.
Oh, can it be, upon a tree, the Saviour died for me?
My soul is thrilled, my heart is filled, to think He died for me!
— John Newton
