In continuance of Romans chapter 5 verse 20, the next sentence of this verse reads as follows: “But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound”, notice, the beginning portion of the sentence as stated just before the comma is implemented, it says, “But where sin abounded. What this means is, that where sin was exceedingly plentiful and beyond measure in the sense of it having dominion, it no longer abound having dominion over the lives of those who were born and shaped in iniquity, but instead are made free from this curse through Jesus Christ. Because of the grace of God, we were justified by faith unto redemption in salvation, praise God, sin is no longer present.

The unmerited favor of God expressed unto those who did nothing of their own power to earn this gift. Because of Christ Jesus obedience unto the death of the cross, the grace of God is given unto us through justification by faith unto righteous, when one truly repents for their sins, (Romans 5:17-19).

By the grace and mercy of God, He has made away of escape through Jesus Christ being made a curse for us when He was placed on the cross to take away our sin. God’s grace therefore abounds exceedingly in abundance without ever coming to an end, for it is His free gift given unto us by no worthiness on our behalf, only by what Christ Jesus did for us, Amen.

To grasp the meaning and validity of Romans chapter 5 verse 21, it must be read in conjunction to verse 20, beginning at the conclusion of the sentence after the colon. For clarity, let us begin our reading again at verse 20, “Moreover the law entered, that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound…” In continuance it states in verse 21, “That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.” Let us explain verse 21 by using the Greek translation for the words reigned and righteousness. As sin “reigned” -[Gk. “Basileuo”, pronounced bas-il-yoo’-o, meaning to rule (-d)], having power and dominion over all humanity, even unto death; even more so, through God’s divine grace is the gift of “righteousness”- [Gk.“dikaiosune”, pronounced dik-ah-yos-oo’nay, meaning equity (of character or act), justification] will have dominion and preeminence through the antiquity of eternity by way of Yeshuah Messiah. Hence, we are given the opportunity and benefits of sanctification and holiness whereby life eternal is obtained.

In his letter to the Romans, Paul makes it very clear by saying “Therefore, as by the offense of one (Adam) judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one (Jesus/Yeshuah) the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life”. As we understand it is then evident in Romans chapter 6 and verse 1, who the Apostle Paul is addressing when he asked the question, “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
Again, another rhetorical question is presented in his writing unto the Church in Rome, but not only was this question addressed to those of that time; it is also a suitable question for our day. We are not to continue in sin when it was by the mercy and grace of God that the way of salvation was made. When you are truly saved (born again) you are made free from every sin you committed.

However, there are those who believe in this misnomer and profess by saying, “once saved always saved, regardless, for everyone is going to sin on occasion, no matter what. God understands for it’s our nature to sin”. In the statement used, God understands it is also believed that He will never forgive someone...
