Morning Thought for August 3August 3, 2015
How’s your kingdom doing today? Are you enjoying the abundance of God’s grace or are you just getting by? If not, you may not be enjoying what Romans 5:17 says: “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.” (ESV)
Notice that there’s an abundance available. The abundance of grace. There’s also a free gift available. The gift of righteousness. The key to having these operating in your life is in the receiving. If you stay in the mindset that God’s mad at you, that you could lose any blessings you have, you’ve not received God’s grace through what Jesus did. He’s already provided for you. It’s yours to receive.
God’s desire is that you’re an heir of His riches—His fullness. You won’t rule and reign in what you haven’t received. Dig into the Word and find out more about how His abundance of grace will change your kingdom.
