And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.
Thanks to the fall of Adam, every human is born into sin. It’s the defining reason mankind needs God’s intervention in the form of Jesus Christ. The first step in seeking salvation is admitting your sinful nature and the need for your sins to be covered under Jesus’ great act of mercy. Adam condemned all of mankind to a death sentence, Jesus shattered deaths grip for those who believe.
