And the free gift is not like the result of that one man’s sin. For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought justification. For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ. Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men.
 
--Romans 5:16-18

Do you know you can live like a king in this world? I know it may be hard to imagine when you look around at the sin in our world today, but God offers us redemption and grace that allow us to live like kings through Him.

When you read the news or turn on the television, do you feel bombarded by the evil that has engulfed our world? You probably do! Many people are looking for the answers to why this evil exists and how to overcome it… but often in all the wrong places.

You see, we can only find why the human condition is the way it is in God’s Word. What happened in the Garden of Eden started the decline of our world. And because of Adam’s sin, we all were born into sin and death reigned over us.

Today’s passage tells us that “the judgment following one trespass” … Adam’s trespass… “brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought justification. For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.”

That’s good news, my friend! That’s the hope we have! Jesus has made it possible for you to live like a king.

That is the best news you can have in a world filled with sin and death!

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, you are no longer ruled by death, but instead you can reign in life through Christ our Lord!

YOU CAN REIGN IN LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST!
