Christ Reigns In Us
By Tammy Lacock
“For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.” (Romans 5:13-14, KJV)
Death reigned from Adam to Moses even to those who had not sinned after Adam’s disobedience. Death passed on to all men. Christ’s death on the cross and His resurrection, however, put an end to death for those who believe. When He died, our sins and our old lives died. Our new life with Christ is eternal. When we die in this body, we rise again with Christ to a new life with our Father in heaven. The great news is we can live that new life right now!
God is a Lover. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son to die for us so that we would live, and live more abundantly.
He gave His Son so that He would die and in that death rise again to a new life in each one of us that believes.
Sin and death no longer reign in us.
Christ now reigns! And He reigns in each and every one of us who believes.
