That is where God's marvelous, wonderful grace steps in. Consider what Scripture says:
Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:  That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
Let's take a moment to consider that more closely. Paul reveals that sin abounded. That is an interesting statement. As we consider it, just on the surface, you would have to agree that sin abounds in our day as well. It seems that everywhere we look; we see the effects of sin. I want us to understand the significance of what the text reveals. It declares that sin abounded. That has the idea of “super-abounding; to abound in abundance, literally piled up, one upon another.”
It would be tragic if abounding sin were all we had to consider. If God had only pointed out our sin and condemned that sin, we would be without hope. But praise the Lord where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.
On the surface it might appear that sin and grace are somewhat similar in measure. Sin abounded, but grace did much more abound. Sin super-abounded; it exists in abundance. Sin has the ability to pile up in our lives. It has the potential to grow.
We need to consider the difference in the text. Sin may super-abound, but grace much more abounds. This speaks of the abundant grace of God. It means “to abound above measure, to overflow.” Where sins may pile up, the grace of God fills up and runs over. It might be said that sin has the ability to add up, but the grace of God has the ability to multiply! God’s grace exceeds all that we can imagine or even need.
I remember a time in my life where sin abounded. I was separated from God, condemned, and without hope. But praise the Lord, where my sin abounded (added up) His grace did much more abound (it was multiplied to me.) Sin once reigned unto death in me, but now grace reigns through righteousness unto eternal life in Christ my Lord.
Living in a body of flesh, I still deal with sin; it is still there. But, I am no longer condemned in my sin. Where sin deserved eternal punishment, grace secured eternal life. I rejoice today that grace exceeds sin!
If you have experienced the grace of God in your life through salvation, you ought to praise the Lord for His abundant grace. Grace, grace, God's grace!
