Reign In Life

Romans 5:17
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. 

Those who are in Christ Jesus are not to be ruled by what happens in life, but to rule in this life they live. We can reign in life because of our right standing with God and through His grace (heavens help) which we received through Jesus Christ. God gives grace to the humble. Simply put, as we humble ourselves before God we will walk in the help He offers. Humility before God means we take God at His Word. We choose to believe what it says about us, and we choose to walk in His ways without hesitation. To reign in this life we must also recognize our right standing with God. We receive this the moment we are born again through this gift of righteousness. This gift is what gives us as children of God the right to our authority in Christ Jesus. So remain humble, accepting God’s Word without reservation, and use the authority God has given to you through His gift of righteousness to reign victorious in this life.

Get Knowledge and Wisdom

Colossians 2:3
God has hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge in Christ. 

All the wisdom and all the knowledge we need is found in our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Word made flesh, and through the Word of God we can get this wisdom and knowledge. When we lack knowledge we lack the ability to know what God knows about something. Lacking knowledge means we are ignorant, not knowing what God says about a matter. We can go to God’s Word and find out exactly what He has to say about any subject. But knowledge of what God desires for us or wants us to know is not enough. Wisdom teaches us how to walk in the knowledge we have. For example knowledge of God’s Word teaches us that He desires to provide all our need. Wisdom teaches us how He does that. Scripture teaches as we give it shall be given to us. To walk in wisdom requires a reverence for the Lord. If you reverence Him you will walk in the wisdom He reveals. If you don’t you will keep doing things your way. If you want what is God’s will for you fulfilled, go to the Word; get knowledge and wisdom applied to your life and you will walk in His will for you.

Run To Him Not From Him

Ephesians 3:12
In Whom, because of our faith in Him, we dare to have the boldness (courage and confidence) of free access (an unreserved approach to God with freedom and without fear). 

Through Christ we now once again can approach God without fear. Our Father has provided for us the privilege of fellowship with Him. It is the very reason why Christ died. When Adam sinned his fellowship with God was broken and he became estranged from God. This brought a fear in the heart of man in approaching God for after Adam sinned he hid himself from God. Once we are born again we no longer need to live fearful of approaching God. The sin that separated us is gone and we can now approach God with complete confidence. So as a believer we should daily draw near to Him and He will draw near to us. Don’t ever run from God, run to Him. If you have sinned repent, and run back to the Father for He awaits with arms open wide to help you get back on your feet again. The door is open so take time to draw near to Him. You will be glad you did.

A Holy Temple

Ephesians 2:21

In Him the whole structure is joined (bound, welded) together harmoniously, and it continues to rise (grow, increase) into a holy temple in the Lord [a sanctuary dedicated, consecrated, and sacred to the presence of the Lord].

In Christ we are a part of a growing holy temple in the Lord. We are to be dedicated, and consecrated (set apart) unto God. We are in the world but no longer of the world, we are the light that now shines in the darkness. Every born again believer should be living a life dedicated to the Lord. You don’t become born again to remain the same as you were before. Receiving Christ means you also receive a new life and therefore a new lifestyle. No believer should continue to live like those who are not born again, looking, sounding, and acting like the world. Christ is our model not the world. Far to many believers are not living a new transformed life because they do not renew their minds to the Word of God. As Romans 12:2 tells us: “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” So to all who are born again we should show Jesus how grateful we are for what He did to deliver us from sin. Do not follow the world, follow after Jesus. Renew your mind through God’s Word to the new you, and be transformed into this new holy temple dedicated to the Lord.

Sealed With The Spirit

Ephesians 1:13
And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago.

When we receive Christ we receive the Holy Spirit to come and live in us. One of the primary purposes of the Holy Spirit as our Helper is to be our guide. He leads us by bearing witness with our spirit. Learn to follow this inward witness. The Word of God reveals this is how God leads us. He does not lead us through outward circumstances, nor does He do so through our minds, but through our spirit man. Proverbs 20:27 tells us the spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord. This means God will enlighten us and guide us through our spirit. We should not be looking for guidance from God any other way. This inward witness will be a complete peace or an agitation within you spirit man. That peace is like a green light and the agitation is like a red light. Make sure the leading you sense is always in line with God’s Word for He will never lead us out of line with His Word for the Spirit and the Word agree. So learn to follow the inward witness of the Holy Spirit and He will help guide you into God’s will for your life.

Enter Into The Promise Land

Ephesians 1:11
In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, … 

Every child of God has obtained an inheritance. We are heirs of God and joint heirs with Jesus. 2 Peter 1:3 tells us that His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness. The children of Israel were given an inheritance in the promise land but they had to go in and possess that inheritance, even though it was already theirs. Just like the children of Israel our inheritance, all that has been given to us in Christ, is available for the taking. You possess your inheritance living by faith; believing in God’s Word, speaking in line with God’s Word, and acting as if God’s Word is true because it is. You must learn this lifestyle of faith to walk in what is yours as a child of God. So walk by faith and not by sight and enter into the promise land Jesus has provided for you.

Let The Redeemed Say So

Ephesians 1:7
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace … 

Through Christ we are redeemed through the blood Jesus shed for us. Redemption means liberation by the procurement of a ransom. Because of Adams act of sin in the garden mankind was taken captive by the deceiver satan himself. Man had become subject to this evil ruler. But God paid the ransom of His Son to liberate us from this evil one. All man has to do is to put their faith in Christ and call upon Him to be the Lord of their life and in doing so accept the payment made to free man. We have been liberated from spiritual death, no longer separated from God, sickness and disease, poverty and lack; all the things that came from the evil one who became the god of this world through Adams rebellion. Once saved to walk in our liberty we must confess who we now are and what we now have in Christ Jesus, for we are told to hold fast to our confession of faith. As we do so our faith filled confession based on God’s Word will become a reality in our lives. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.
