Reign in Life


"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


If you’re a mom, dad, student, athlete, business owner, single person, sales executive, teacher, doctor, lawyer, homeschooler, politician, reporter, dancer, preacher or just a fired up Christian—God wants you to reign in life and He tells you how to do it.


To reign in life, you need to receive two specific things—abundant grace and the gift of righteousness.


Abundance of Grace: When you receive an abundance of God’s grace, He infuses you with His power, inner strength and ability. His grace keeps and increases you in the Christian faith. He causes you to be “highly favored" by His grace. Today, don't stop with one dose of grace; receive an abundance of it!


Gift of Righteousness: God’s gift of righteousness is one of the most profound and generous gifts God has given to you. It’s the mother lode! To receive God’s gift of righteousness is to become as righteous as He is! The Bible says, "For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him." (2 Corinthians 5:21) This righteousness is unattainable by obedience to any law, or by any merit of man’s own, or any other condition than faith in Christ. When you believe in Jesus and receive the gift of righteousness, God legally justifies you in heaven’s court! God’s gift of righteousness is free. You cannot earn it. You can only receive it through believing in Jesus and His finished work on the cross on your behalf. What a gift! Today, don't lean on your own self-righteousness; receive His gift of righteousness.


God wants you to reign in life. Let's pray and receive an abundance of grace and His gift of righteousness.


Say It: "Father , I thank You for the ability to reign in life. Today, I receive an abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness You so freely give. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
