Those who Receive will Reign!
“…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 NIV
We learnt yesterday that we only need to RECEIVE God’s gift of salvation. We cannot earn it because it’s a gift.
That’s GRACE: God giving us what we do not deserve!
Now let’s look at what happens when you receive:
God’s ABUNDANT PROVISION of grace:
> means ‘more than enough’ unmerited favor. No matter what you may have done, God continues to provide an overflowing of grace that you don’t deserve.
God’s GIFT of righteousness
> means the perfect goodness of Jesus is ‘freely given without the need for repayment’. That means God sees you just like he sees Jesus: Perfect!
REIGN in life
> means to be the Governor of circumstances and have authority over every situation you find yourself in.
Surely you want to reign in life! You want to have authority to command sickness to go away. You want the power to speak provision into your family.
All you need to do is… Receive!
Dear friend, as you open your heart
…to RECEIVE God’s grace that forgives every mistake in your entire life
…and RECEIVE God’s gift of righteousness that makes you perfect in his eyes
…you will REIGN with power and authority in life through Christ Jesus!
Receive… and Reign!
