Pentecost 5, Proper 6

We fear genetic diseases because there is little we can do to prevent ourselves from getting them. Romans 5 says that sin is in all of our genes.

Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned….

It sounds like a pretty bleak outlook for all of us. God’s Word continues.

But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man’s trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many.

If you think your genetic sin seems great, God’s love in Jesus is greater. Christ’s sacrifice gives the freest genetic cure for you, forgiveness of all of your sin.
