The Secret of Reigning In Life

“For if by 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.” — Romans 5:17

➢The secret of reigning in life lies therefore with receiving everything that Jesus has accomplished for us on the cross.
➢If you are living in a life of defeat or being defeated by sin, by guilt, and condemnation, by sicknesses or anxiety attacks, or by financial lack and broken relationship, you are not living the life that God intended for you.
➢The word “reign” used in Rom. 5:17 is the Greek word “basileuo” where you get the English word basilica.
➢In ancient Rome, basilica was used as law courts so it refers to a kingly judicial rule, in other words to reign here, is to reign in life as a king to have a kingly rule and to possess kingly dominion.
➢So it is not the Lord’s desire that you live a life of defeat, poverty and failure.
➢You are called by the Lord to be a success to enjoy wealth to enjoy health and to enjoy life of victory.
➢If you are a businessman or a simple homemaker, a student or an employee, God wants you to excel in every area of your life. He wants you to have a position of influence so that you can be a blessing and an asset for God’s kingdom. So whatever your vocation, is you are destined to reign in life because Jesus is Lord of your life.


➢The bible states very clearly that we are to reign in life through Jesus Christ just by receiving two things from Him:
1. Abundance of Grace
2. The Gift of righteousness
➢Man thinks that God’s blessing are based on his performance and good works.
➢God’s way is not about achieving but about receiving. He said that when we receive the abundance of Grace and the gift of righteousness, we will reign in life, He did not say that when we achieve grace and our own righteousness, we will reign in life. God’s way is not for us to be blessed by our own effort because we cannot earn God’s blessing by our own performance.
➢The world’s system of success is built on twin pillars of self effort and diligence. There are always some laws that you have to abide by and some methods and techniques that you have to keep before you can see any results
➢God wants us to stop trying to achieve and to begin receiving the favor, blessings and healing that Jesus accomplished for us on the cross. The word of God says that for by one  man’s offense, death reign through the one, much more than those who receive abundance of grace and gift of righteousness, will reign in life through the one Jesus Christ…Romans 5:17….
