Romans 5:17 CEV: Death ruled like a king because Adam had sinned. But that cannot compare with what Jesus Christ has done. God has treated us with undeserved grace, and he has accepted us because of Jesus. And so we will live and rule like kings.
My dear friend in Christ, sometimes it beats my imagination about what we make of the word of God when we go through it. Our text today made it very clear and says because we have received undeserved grace and been accepted by God because of Christ, we are to live and rule like kings. The question is: are we really living and ruling like kings? Do you really believe that we can live and rule like kings? Is the Bible exaggerating? I don’t think so.
I believe that whatever the word of God says is final. If it’s not true, then it would not be written down. Many people are actually living like slaves. We beg for everything. We beg for food, shelter, clothing, water and other basic necessities of life. This should not be so. We must rise above the life of slavery and live like kings. The only way this is possible is to get to know more about who you are from the word of God. Study more of the word. Know what belongs to you and go for it. Do it for yourself and your family. Shalom.
Declare to yourself loud: I am a king.
1. Oh Lord my God, cause me to reign like a king in this life.
2. Precious Holy Spirit, open my eyes to all that you have given me, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
3. Please add your personal intentions.
