KEY SCRIPTURE: Romans 5:17 ” 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.)”
To reign in life is to live above the influence and the operations of the devil. Satan has held most men under the sway of his works. He has deceived them and then controls them with sin, sickness and all sorts of evil activities. This ought not to be so, because, Jesus was manifested to destroy the works of the devil, and indeed he finished it. (1st John 3:8, John 19:30)
From our key scripture we reign by abundance of grace. And the gift of righteousness. We would consider abundance of grace for now. Please note that the Bible did not say “the” abundance of grace. That would have made it a definite amount for everyone. Rather the scripture said, “abundance of grace”. This implies the amount of grace you obtain is dependent on how much you can receive. Now, the grace of God is everything Christ did for us which is made available for us through the Spirit, and is received by faith. God makes this divine provision for men in its fullness’s it is called ‘abundance of grace’. John 1:16 states, “And of His fullness have all we received grace for Grace”. O what a grace,. It comes from His fullness. How much can you take? This is one part of God’s provision for us to be kings in this life.
The Holy Spirit inspired the Apostle Paul to pen the following amazing words in Colossians 2:9,10 “For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And you are complete in Him which is the head of all principalities and powers”. Let’s look at Colossians 2:10 from the amplified Bible “And you are in Him made full and having come to fullness of life (in Christ you are filed with the Godhead -Father, Son and the Holy Spirit – and reach full spiritual state). And He is the head of all rule and authority (of every angelic principality and power). This amplification of the scripture is so amazing.
In Him we have come to the fullness of life, explaining that in Christ we are filled with the Godhead – Father Son and the Holy Spirit – and reach full spiritual stature. All these is yours for the taking, if only you would believe it and live by it.
Receiving the abundance of Grace is believing or receiving these truths about you and living in the light of them. Resist anything that is not consistent with what God has provided (James 4:7)
God has given of His fullness to me. I receive everyone of it that I will continue to reign in life. Sin, sicknesses and all satanic activities are subjected to me in Jesus name.
2 Peter 1:4 ” Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust”.
Luke 10:19 ” Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you”.
