Day 4: Jesus Christ is the Second Adam

Breathe in God’s Truth

But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in
Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.

1 Corinthians 15:20-22)

Passages to Study: Romans 5:12-15; 1 Corinthians 15:42-49

Questions to Consider

  1. How did Jesus Christ fully accomplish what the first Adam could not?
  2. How does knowing Jesus Christ lived and suffered as a human embolden You to come to Him with Your suffering? (Hebrews 4:14-16)
  3. How does Christ’s resurrection give you hope for Your eternal future?

Breathe out Your Response

Dear Jesus,
You created humanity to enjoy a loving relationship and rule with You, but we have failed miserably. From Adam through today, we have continued to believe the lies of Satan and have sold ourselves into the slavery of sin. Thank You for coming to Earth as a man to be our sinless representative to the Father. You fulfilled in perfection what the first Adam never could. Thank You for the eternal life we can enjoy in You.
