"For if by the 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, NKJV

Today’s devo is a continuation of what we discussed on Wednesday of this week...As a recap, if we want God’s power to reign in life, it’s available! If you’re a mom, dad, student, athlete, business owner, single person, sales executive, homeschooler, politician, fighting a faith battle, a preacher or just a fired up Christian – God wants you to reign in life and He tells us how to do it in Romans 5:17. 

Today, we’re going to look at how we should receive two specific things mentioned in this verse - abundant grace and the gift of righteousness

Abundance of Grace: There are a lot of ways to look at grace. In general, when we receive (take, claim, obtain, possess – remember Wednesday’s devo?) God’s grace, He causes us to be “highly favored.” His grace, His loving-kindness, is a benefit and reward. God’s grace is given to us as a favor, which we receive without any deserving of our own. God’s grace keeps, strengthens and increases us in faith. God’s grace is freely given to those who believe! We can access an abundance of grace by faith according to Romans, “…through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God,” Romans 5:2, NKJV. 

By faith (what we believe in our hearts and acknowledge with our mouths) we simply receive the free gift of God’s favor, blessing, reward, strength and benefit in the areas of our lives where we need to reign! 

Gift of Righteousness: God’s gift of righteousness is one of the most profound and generous gifts God has given us. To receive God’s gift of righteousness is to become as righteous as He is! To be righteous is the character or quality of being right or just. It is used to denote an attribute of God – the righteousness of God – and that gracious gift of God to men whereby all who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ are brought into right relationship with God. This righteousness is unattainable by obedience to any law, or by any merit of man’s own, or any other condition than faith in Christ.

When we believe in Jesus and receive the gift of righteousness, God legally justifies us in heaven’s court! Because of the finished work of Jesus on the cross, He declares that we are not guilty. This is a declaration that heaven will never repeal. 

God’s gift of righteousness and His abundance of grace are free gifts! We cannot earn them. We can only receive through believing in Jesus and His finished work on the cross on our behalf. Today, let's receive it! 

Say It: “Father, I thank You for the ability to reign in life. Today, because of Jesus and His finished work on the cross, I receive (I take, claim and possess) the abundant grace You so freely give. I am living under Your unmerited favor. I am a recipient of Your goodness, benefits and rewards. I thank You for the inner strength and ability You give me by grace. I receive (I take, claim and possess) Your free gift of righteousness. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. You have declared that I am justified. It’s ‘just as if I had never sinned.’ I believe it and I receive it. I am free from guilt, condemnation and inferiority. I am free to worship You Lord. I am free to live a life that honors You. I thank and praise You today for your amazing gifts and the power to reign in life! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
