REIGNING THROUGH RIGHTEOUSNESS!
So that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 5:21).
Righteousness is one of the attributes of God that He shared with us as Christians. Therefore, we have the nature of God that makes us different and unique. As Christians, we are expected to reign with God through righteousness. The Word of God has trained us to see and think differently like a king. Apostle Paul says in 2 Timothy 3:16, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” The Word of God is a divine manual to train you in the way and life of righteousness. It is also the roadmap to your greatness in life.
The Holy Spirit guides us through the Word of God on how to be successful in life irrespective of life challenges and obstacles. The Holy Spirit is the best Teacher because He teaches us about the reality of life. Whatever life endeavor or field you find yourself, the Holy Spirit is there to help you become the best. That is why the Bible tells us, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9).
Furthermore, Apostle Paul says in 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.” God expects us to reign in righteousness by refusing sickness, failure, defeat and death. You have the right, the authority and power to refuse whatever God has not ordained for you in His Word. Therefore, live and reign through righteousness in Christ Jesus.
Daily Tip: God has chosen and ordained you to reign in life through the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Shalom!
Golden Text: For if by the one man’s offense death reign 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).
