”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
The secret of reigning in life lies with receiving everything that Jesus has accomplished for us on the cross.
Based on the authority of God’s Word, you are destined to “reign in life” as a king and to have dominion over all your challenges and circumstances. You are called to be above them all and not to be trampled by them. The time has come for you to stop abdicating your right to reign in life!
The Bible tells us that it was because of “one man’s offense” — Adam’s sin in the Garden of Eden — that death began to reign.
It is important that you realise that our lives are wrapped up in those of our ancestors. So we are sinners not because we sin, but because of Adam’s sin. Many believers still think that they became sinners by committing sin, but that is not what the Word of God says. What it says is that we are sinners because of Adam’s sin.
By the same token, we are made righteous in the new covenant not because we do righteous deeds, but because of one Man’s (Jesus’s obedience on the cross. It is not about something we must still do, it is by what is already done!
The secret of reigning in life lies therefore with receiving, believing and embracing everything that Jesus has accomplished for us on the cross.
