The entrance of sin into the universe had changed the course of events and affected God's relationship with his creatures; but grace has reset and reestablished that relationship. There could never have been a greater consequence of sin than the threefold consequence of death. Yet, grace triumphs over death and brings immortality to life.
The Epistles herein considered have dealt exhaustively with grace: its source, application, and effects. However, most of their contents have dealt with the application of grace to emphasize that the blessings of grace extend beyond time to eternity. Though one cannot change one's own nature, one can change one's destiny by the opportunity offered by grace. Grasp the opportunity with both hands while there is time.
