Reigning By Grace

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)

While
there’re many Christians today who are reigning in life and enjoying their glorious
heritage in Christ, there’re still those who’re whining, crying, pleading and
begging God for everything; toiling and failing, and this ought not to be. As
seen in our opening verse, we’re not called to reign by our strength, but by
grace through Jesus Christ; we’re sufficient in His sufficiency (2 Corinthians
3:5 AMP). Halleluiah!

Refuse to
live as a victim in life; you’re called to reign. The word “reign” in our
opening verse actually means “to king.” The Greek construction is accurately
rendered thus: “…they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of
righteousness shall king in life, by one, Jesus Christ.” You’re supposed to be
“kinging” in life. This is what some of us have found out; we’ve received
abundance of grace, and the gift of righteousness, and as a result, we’re
“kinging” in life; we’re living the life of dominion.

Sadly, some
people look at us and think we must be doing something strange or wrong for our
lives to be so glorious; but how could something wrong produce something so
excellent? We’ve only taken advantage of the super-abundant grace that’s
available in Christ Jesus.

We’ve all
been given grace in abundance: the grace of God that brings
salvation—wholeness, preservation, health, peace, deliverance, safety,
security, prosperity—and all the blessings in Christ Jesus, has appeared unto
all men (Titus 2:11). However, the question is, “Have you received that grace?”
It’s those who have “received abundance of grace” that’ll reign in life.

This informs
why the Apostle Paul charged Timothy to take advantage of the grace of God
that’s in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 2:1). Become grace-conscious. Grace is the
overflowing of God’s ability at work in your life; it’s the glory of God
working in your spirit. The grace of God in your life brought about eternal
life, righteousness, and oneness with the Holy Spirit. The Bible says, “…he
giveth more grace…” (James 4:6); meaning that there’s grace for everything and
anything; whatever God has called you to do, there’s more than enough grace for
it. Therefore, live in, and by, the “grace advantage.”
