The Much More

The Much More pic

Have you watched a child eagerly tear into a Birthday or Christmas present? Most of them can’t wait to open their gift to see what neat treasure they’ve been given. Why aren’t believers reacting the same way to God’s provisions through Jesus? Many just go as far as taking off the ribbon, the outer wrapping, and removing any tissue paper (salvation and forgiveness of sin) without totally finding the gift inside. What about the rest that God has given us? In Romans 5:17 (ESV), Paul makes it clear that there’s MORE for those of us who receive Jesus as our Savior—it’s the abundance of grace he’s speaking of, but he spells out the much more: “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.” There’s abundance of grace, benefits, and blessings beyond measure that you can enjoy now. But if you don’t open the gift, you won’t know all that you’ve been given. Go past the ribbon, the wrapping, and the tissue paper—go for the abundance of God’s grace so you can reign in life.
