For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, 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)
Jesus made us righteous. His death and resurrection provided new life for us, and that gift is available to us by grace through faith. However, Jesus didn’t only want us to have enough to barely get by and just look to heaven for our hope.
No, Jesus promises us good things here in this life. God’s best is that we walk in blessings and abundance.
Today’s Truth: We Reign in Life With Christ
That means that we don’t have to walk around in fear, upset, or wondering what the future holds. No matter what happens in the world around us, we can know that in Christ we will come out on top. Today’s verse shows us that we reign in this life through Jesus.
So don’t give in to fear. Don’t let worry or concern for the future stop you. Instead, realize that Jesus has provided you everything you need to reign in this life. He’s going to make sure that you have what you need to do what he’s called you to do.
