Romans 5:17 (NET)
For if, by the transgression of the one man, death reigned through the one, how much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one, Jesus Christ!
Sally understood that the life she was living was not that of an overcomer or of someone described in today’s Bible verse who reigns in life with Christ. She was defeated everywhere. Her health was poor, her marriage relationship in shambles, and she was covered in financial debt. As a believer, she knew something was wrong somewhere but didn’t know what.
She started asking the Lord many questions and soon she realized that the reason she was so defeated in life was because of her little understanding of the abundance of Christ’s grace and the gift of righteousness.
She immediately knew that it was time for her to be given to learning. She hit the bookstore and bought so many titles she knew would fill her with the word of faith and the word of righteousness.
The extent of the understanding of Christ’s grace we have is the extent to which we would appropriate the dimensions of its realities.
Believers who are very ignorant are the believers who suffer unnecessarily the most(see Hosea 4:6, Proverbs 5:23). The biggest hindrances to being filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding are lack of proper exposure and presence of pride. Some are not willing to bend down and learn because they believe they know and are wise enough. That’s why they continue to suffer for things that Christ has already paid for.
There is the receiving and appropriating of the abundance of grace and gift of righteousness. The two go together. One who does not understand the gift of righteousness cannot understand and/or appropriate the abundance of Christ’s grace. We shall look more at this next time.
Go into today remembering that the extent of understanding of the grace and riches we have in Christ is the extent to which we would walk in them. “And in thy getting, get understanding” (Prov 4:7).
Prayer: Lord, please open the eyes of my understanding, in Jesus name. Amen. Pray with Ephesians 1:17-19.
