People's Bible Notes for Romans 5:17
Ro 5:17 For if by one man's offence. The superabounding grace of Christ is still further shown. Death reigned by one. As a result of Adam's one offense, death reigned over men. They which receive abundance of grace. So, on the other hand, those who accept Christ's grace, and enjoy his righteousness, shall, through him, reign in life. The life spoken of is the resurrection from the grave, and the privilege, not the guarantee, of eternal life that is offered through the gospel.
