Romans 5:17 For if by one man's offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.
Reigning in life like Jesus means reigning over problems for other people. Jesus healed the sick, blessed businesses, comforted the hurting, restored the broken and even raised the dead. How do you think Jesus expects us to reign?
Many times people hear the word "reign" and they think of the conventional type of reigning - bossing people around, telling them what to do. Jesus introduced a very new kind of reigning (never before seen demonstrated), REIGNING THROUGH COMPASSION. He was moved with compassion and healed them all. He never showed an interest in controlling those around Him like they expected Him to; like many still expect Him to do today. He actually likes the title "King of Kings" which means that He is calling you and I to the same type of reigning that He demonstrated.
So are you up for it? Are we willing to lay down our quest for power and use the unlimited power fully granted to us to serve our communities with miracle after miracle?
Meditation: The love of God is shed abroad in my heart by the Holy Spirit. I am moved with compassion to heal my community.
