No, I have not discovered some deep, hidden inheritance document that makes me some King or Nobleman. I do not even have in my DNA the lineage that makes me a Duke, nor an Earl, nor a Knight, not even some lowly stable boy!
Yet, I do reign in life as a result of what Jesus Christ did.
...much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.
The Lord Jesus Christ paid the ultimate price to enable the born again one to reign in life. With the receiving God’s grace and His righteousness, we are put on a higher plane. You do not see Kings and Noblemen holding back from their position. They are excited, because they know who they are. We are righteous because we have His righteousness. We are confident because we are in the family of God. We are bold because it is Christ in us the hope of glory!
For many people they are subject to their sins and allow their ill-feelings to control their actions. We are not subject to the world. Our inheritance is in the Heavenly Father who has delivered us out of this dark world and put us in the kingdom of His son.
Colossians 1:12 & 13:
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
We are sons of God who reign in life because of what Jesus Christ did. Remember this reality and walk boldly.
