Reigning in Life

By Roderick Breem

What does it mean to reign in life? It means to rule, to dictate – call the shots. Many of us feel ruled by the world, by the pandemic, by our own many failures that never seem to end.

But guess what Christians? God has called you to reign. I do not mean you calling the shots on your own. I mean reigning with Christ, seated with Him on the throne. Eph 2:6 tells us God “…raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” Sit where? On the throne. Only those who sit on a throne rule.

Now to the main scripture I wanted to arrest your attention: “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)

Death reigned. Past tense. Now grace reigns through what Jesus did on the cross. And now, we, who “receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life.”

How would you like to reign in life and not feel tossed to and from with every circumstance that happens around you? Is it possible even you ask? Yes! We must receive the abundance of grace. God gives grace to the humble – you just have to receive it.

Father, I thank you that death (spiritual and natural) no longer reigns. I receive your grace, which has no end, and the gif of righteousness. God I choose to reign with you rather than allow circumstances and feelings to run the show. You have made me a king and a priest. In Jesus’ name. Photo credit:
