Righteousness and Life

Many Christians don’t realize that their union with Christ at salvation actually presupposes their union with Adam in sin. We read in Genesis that God required the First Adam to obey him in perfect righteousness, promising him everlasting life if he did so. But he failed, plunging all of humanity into sin and death. But the Last Adam, Jesus Christ, offered that perfect righteousness and has won that everlasting life in the new creation for all who trust in him. This talk will guide us through this glorious story of the righteousness and life we have in Jesus Christ, the Last Adam.
