ROMANS ROAD DEVOTIONAL | Day 8 - Reign In Life
Romans 5:17 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.
Adam, as the progenitor of the human race, is responsible for leaving us a legacy of what we call the “sin nature.” We inherited the desire to sin which resulted in death reigning over humanity.
Jesus, who is called the “last Adam” (1 Cor. 15:45) has reversed the curse. Jesus empowered us to be able to experience an abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness.
The outcome of this grace and gift is that through Christ you can reign in life! We do not reign over people, but we can reign over ourselves and our responsibilities.
Because of Jesus, we are no longer victims. We are victors!
Reflection Question: How do you “reign in life” through Christ?
