As Christians, we are part of a NEW HUMANITY born in Jesus Christ. By GRACE through FAITH we have been TAKEN FROM sin and death and been MADE NEW persons in Christ. This new status is a GIFT of God's GRACE that was conferred upon us through the BIRTH, LIFE, DEATH, and RESURRECTION of Jesus. Though we may be connected biologically to Adam, our spiritual connection is with Christ. He is our PERFECT MEDIATOR and DELIVERER: truly human and truly righteous.
