Morning Meditation – Two Reigns

“What shall we say then?  Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound?  By no means!  How can we who died to sin still live in it?” (Romans 6:1-2, ESV)

How you live matters, and where you live is critical.  As supernatural as God is, He is very practical in His call to us.  Actions speak louder than words.  They reveal our heart and where our devotions lie.

When we chose to follow Jesus, we chose to die to the spirits of this world.  We said that we wanted everything that comes with the reign of Christ—freedom, grace, and the power of His presence.  When we accepted salvation, we stepped into a realm of living by the supernatural.  We chose to live under a different reign.

When we took Jesus on in baptism, it was a declaration to all worldly and spiritual powers that we are under different management.  So, allow the Spirit of the Lord encourage you…maybe even confront you.  Ask Him if there is anything that needs to be shifted in our lives to open doors to His purposes.  The scripture is clear; we can’t simply depend on grace to circumvent our own poor choices.  There are consequences to every action.  Let faith-filled choices grant you brand new access!

    Interesting….to be suddenly aware you are “under” different management and then to “continue” in that management are two different things. Thank you Pastor, Im challenged more and more to look for His leading for my story in Him .
