REIGNING IN CHRIST (2)

“For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ” – Romans 5:17

LIGHT FOR NOW: As a believer in Christ Jesus, you have been empowered to reign in life.

Everyone who is in Christ Jesus is designed to reign in this life and in the life to come. This is the original plan of God for the believer. In Genesis 1:28 -30 after God created Adam, He blessed man and gave man charge and dominion over all things. When Adam sinned by disobedience, man died and the entire creation became cursed. In Romans 3:23, the bible says, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God”. It is the glory of God in a man that makes him to reign in life. Man therefore lost the glory of God and automatically lost his place of dominion. Christ Jesus was raised from the dead by the Spirit of Glory, unto glory to restore us back to the Glory of God so that we can reign with Him by grace and righteousness.

As believers, we are entitled to and we have received the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness to reign with Christ in the heavenlies. Once you rule in that realm, the earth is under your feet and you can decide what happens here on the earth. You become in charge of your life and decide what happens to you and what does not happen to you. According to Apostle Paul in Ephesians 1:16- 22, God through His mighty power raised Christ Jesus from the dead and set him at his right hand in the heavenlies and has put all things under Him: both things in heaven, things on earth and things beneath the earth. And the Bible tells us in Ephesians 2:6 that God raised us up together and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus to reign with Him. As a believer in Christ Jesus, you have been empowered to reign alongside Christ

INSTRUCTION: Rule your world. You have been empowered

CONFESSION: Lord, I enforce my reigning in life in Christ Jesus, in Jesus Name. Amen.

QUOTE: when Jesus is revealed, scriptures are unveiled.
