Rom 5:17 (NLT) For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ.
Daniel posted to his Facebook page that he is the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. He was excited to hear this truth. But he didn’t hear it all. He didn’t realize that the gift of righteousness and grace we have from God empowers us to triumph over sin. His Facebook post was now the object of his classmate’s mockery when he was caught for exam malpractice the following day.
Somehow, even the people of this world expect to see victory over sin when a man professes faith in Christ.
Today’s Bible text shows us that we who have received God’s wonderful grace and gift of righteousness will triumph over sin and death through Jesus Christ. In God’s kingdom, sin is not disregarded as something that grace covers; it is perpetually resisted and conquered by the superior power of Christ.
Why is sin such a big deal, why can’t God just overlook all future sins after we have been justified by faith? Because the reason we needed justification in the first place was because of sin. Jesus came to save us from our sins (see Mat 1:21). He came to break the irresistible power of sin over mankind and give us power to walk above the bondage of sin and death.
Go into today knowing that because of grace, sin has no dominion over you.
Prayer Confession: I am walking above sin and death. I am walking in the divine nature and doing exploits for God. In Jesus name. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
