Romans 5:17 - Redeemed from the Empire of Death Bookmark

The emphatic point of the comparison. The effect of the second Adam cannot fall behind that of the first. If death reigned, there must be a reign of life. (Dr. Marvin R. Vincent, Vincent's Word Studies)
Shall reign in life - Those who receive, retain, and improve the abundant grace offered by Jesus Christ, shall be redeemed from the empire of death, and exalted to the throne of God, to live and reign with him ever, world without end. (Dr. Adam Clarke)
For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. (NASB)
For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) (KJV)
For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God's wonderful grace and His gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one Man, Jesus Christ. (NLT)
For if, by the transgression of the one man, death reigned through the one, how much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one, Jesus Christ! (NET)

What greater joy is there in this life than to know that we may "live in triumph over sin and death?"  Without ceasing, the enemy of our soul will try to dissuade us from this eternal ttruth.  What greater discouragement than to live a life of deception?  The contrast continues in these passages so that we my discover that our lives are indeed held up by the righteous right hand of Him who loved us and delivered Himself up for us!
