These two posts go together
In line with the last post, I must ask you this… what reigns over your life, your home, your country?
So that, [just] as sin has reigned in death,
[so] grace (His unearned and undeserved favor) might reign also through righteousness (right standing with God) which issues in eternal life through Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) our Lord. – Rom 5:21
Take a look at your life. What is it that reigns down over you?
- Sin and death, or
- Jesus Christ’s righteousness and grace (favor)
The righteousness of Jesus Christ is a hedge of protection over your life. The righteousness of Jesus Christ is a free gift that can be received by anyone and it results in the grace of God – favor – which you cannot earn or buy, you can only receive as a free gift.
