Key verse: Romans 5:15b: For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many!
Romans 5:12-21; Ephesians 2:1-10
Big idea: Can we be good enough to get to heaven and what role, if any, does Jesus play in that? That’s the question debated in the early church between Augustine and Pelagius. It’s also a topic answered for us in Romans: No we can’t be good enough, but because of God’s grace we can be saved through faith in Christ.
