The fruit of the first Adam and the fruit of the Second

What happened as a result of the actions of the first Adam?

No longer peace between God & man; no longer peace between people; no longer peace between man & creation; no longer peace between man & himself .

What are the results of the life, death, and resurrection of the Second Adam?

Peace between God & man; peace between people; peace between man & creation; peace with ourself. Though not all fully realized yet, the work of Christ is comprehensive in its scope. Surely this is what all people need.

And this is just part of the picture. Jesus doesn’t merely fix what Adam messed up, but he goes beyond that such that we experience joy and a relationship with God that is more than Adam had in the garden. Amazing!
