Reign in Life

  Kings 9; 2 Chronicles 8; Psalms. 136; Romans 5

“For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.”

Romans 5:17

God’s intention for us is not just to reign in heaven, but to reign in life. God has made provision for us to know him through Christ’s gift of righteousness to us. Through the grace of Christ we have right standing and relationship with God Almighty. His Spirit indwells us and gives us the capacity to both live under God’s authority and live in God’s authority. Our submission to Christ and his Word gives us the freedom to resist sin and the influence of the world, the flesh and the devil. We reign in life with Christ. There are few things the enemy wants more, than to keep us ignorant of this truth. In Christ, we are more than conquerors through him who loved us and gave himself for us.

“Lord Jesus, thank you for making it possible for me to reign in life with you. May I live that way to life’s fullest potential.”
