In Training for Reigning
“For if by one man's offence 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.” - Romans 5:17
Why did God come down through the dark Judean night through the portals of a virgin’s womb to be born a man? Why did He exchange His glory for flesh and blood? One reason was to restore to us the dominion we had lost as the people of God.
You may not realize that God made you to rule, but He did. God created us to be kings and queens (see Genesis 1:26). But how many people realize their God-given dominion today?
Jesus righteously regained our dominion and spoiled the principalities and powers of this world when He bowed His head and said, “It is finished” (John 19:30).
You were created for His glory, and one day, the Bible tells us, we will reign with him. You, saints, are in training for reigning. When you look in the mirror, see a child of the King.
