For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:17 NKJV)
Adam hit the slip ‘n’ side. He fell away. He sinned. He missed the mark. God told him he could eat anything in the garden except…. He disobeyed and ate the ONE thing God said he couldn’t. Death entered the earth and reigned through the one man’s offense. BUT GOD! Thank God. He had a better plan! Life entered through one man’s sacrifice!
Much more…more than death reigns, more than sickness reigns and more than destruction reigns…
We who received and laid hold of the super abundant grace and the gift of righteousness will reign in life! God super abundantly blessed us with His unmerited favor. He also gifted us with righteousness. God through Jesus set us back up. He sat us upright, the way we ought to be! Jesus made us acceptable and approved of by God. When God looks at us, He sees Jesus!
When we take Jesus, death is not allowed to reign over us. Sickness is not allowed to reign over us. Destruction is not allowed to reign over us. We reign in life by the One, Jesus Christ! We reign. We take our place by Jesus, as joint heirs in the kingdom of God. Resolutely, we take our royal office and rule as Kings and Queens. We exercise our God given authority in our territory, our homes, our cities, our state, and our country! If we are reigning, we are exercising the highest influence and control in our ‘hood through Jesus, our King of Kings—and King of Queens.
I enCOURAGE you through Jesus Christ to reign in life. Exercise your royal power in Him to live and breathe. Enjoy life to the fullest, active, blessed, endless in the kingdom of God through the One, Jesus! Sin and death entered in, but Jesus got the win!!! LIVE!
