Romans 5:17: “For if, by the trespass of the one man, deathreigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in lifethrough the one man, Jesus Christ!”
There was a time when we were under the power of sin. Satan was our master. What a terrible master he was! A cruel one! He made us suffer and live in shame, hopelessness and godlessness. Our path had to end in eternal damnation. However, things have changed when Christ found us in this desperate situation.
He wiped away our sins and Satan lost power over us. God changed our nature. We are under God’s authority now. He is a good master that loves his servants. Furthermore, He gave us power over sin and ability to reign in life. We have become more than conquerors in Christ. Who can frighten us? Who can separate us from the love of God? Nobody and nothing! Satan has no claims for us. He lost us and so did sin. Jesus freed us from all powers of evil. We can rejoice now as we can reign with Christ in this life. Praise God!
