(You’ve Been Called To Reign By Grace)
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
TO THE BIBLE: “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.)”
While many Christians today are reigning in life and enjoying their glorious inheritance in Christ, some others are full of struggles and failures, always crying to God and begging Him for everything.
This ought not to be, for every child of God has been called to reign in this life by Jesus Christ, through the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness we’ve all received. Let the realisation that you’re sufficient in God’s sufficiency cause you to take a stand, and refuse to live the life of a victim (2 Corinthians 3:5 AMPC).
The Lord has given you grace in abundance, grace that brings salvation— wholeness, preservation, health, peace, deliverance, safety, prosperity—and all the blessings in Christ Jesus (Titus 2:11).
The Bible says in James 4:6, “…he gives more grace…”; this means that whatever God has called you to do, there’s more than enough grace for you to accomplish it. The question, however, is, “How much of that grace have you received?” You see, it’s only those who “receive abundance of grace” that’ll reign in life. No wonder Paul charged Timothy to take advantage of the grace of God that’s in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 2:1). I give you the same charge today: be grace-conscious. Live in and by the “grace advantage.”
Go Deeper: Hebrews 4:16; James 4:6
Speak: Blessed Lord, I thank you for your grace that’s at work in me. Your grace has brought me eternal life and oneness with your Spirit. I take advantage of this grace and live victoriously today and always! Nothing is impossible with me, because my life is the story and testimony of your grace. Glory, Hallelujah!
