“But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound” (Romans 5:20). 

The wonderful truth of grace is that there is no sinner beyond its reach. It is stated in our text that “where sin abounded, grace did much more abound”. What does that mean? It means that there is no amount of sin that will keep a sinner from the saving benefits of grace. One’s sins may be higher than Mt. Everest, yet grace can leap over it and save the chiefest of sinners (1 Timothy 1:15). 

It may be that you are under the heavy burden of sin (Psalm 38:4), and its weight is simply overwhelming that you can’t even lift up your eyes towards heaven (Psalm 40:12). Your guilt is such that you even feel that God won’t forgive you. But then, that is what GRACE is all about: It is to forgive the most despicable and vilest of sinners; for “where sin abounded, grace did much more abound”.

Oh, to experience the Grace of God is to know that ALL of our sins are forgiven for Christ’s sake, “in whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace” (Ephesians 1:7). That will fill our hearts with joy and peace, and enable us to sing: “Amazing grace, how sweet the sound; that saved a wretch like me!” It is also to know that “(God) hath made us accepted” i.e. graced us “in the beloved” Son of God (v. 6), and that His blood “cleanseth us from all sin” (1 John 1:7). Yes, praise God that “where sin abounded, grace did much more abound”. Hallelujah!!! Amen.
