Good morning all,
The word of the day is “reign.” Paul knew that humans were pretty much helpless without the assistance of the Lord Jesus. Most people would have taken this as something discouraging. But the apostle Paul understood that because it was so impossible to earn salvation, we were able to receive it freely without expecting to ever earn it. If anyone knew what it meant to have a Savior cover his sins it was the apostle Paul.
“The law was added so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, 21 so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
My question for you is: has grace increased all the more in your life? JC gives it freely, we just need to accept it. Living a life of the Savior is freeing them because we do not deserve it. My prayer is that you realize your trespasses are no match for the blood that covers you. Take a few moments and thank God for giving you everything you need, even though you are not capable of earning it. God is pretty cool like that.
Praying for you,
