Dear Daughter of Almighty God
Romans 5:17 (ESV)
17 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.
In Romans 5 it is repeated a number of times about one man bringing in sin and one man by the grace of God and free gift we are made right before God. Sin entered the world through one man but is removed by one man Jesus.
God is trying to get a point across here because of His grace and Jesus’ free gift we are made righteous and we can reign in life. Reign means time in power, period of office, period of influence, supremacy, control, sway and be in power. In our lives we are to be in power, have control, be supreme over our lives which means the devil should be run out of our lives, we have that power.
The Word of God says we are to resist the devil; we are to resist the devil. How do we do this? The same way Jesus did with the Word of God. If we don’t read the Word of God how will we resist the devil, he will not go if you tell him to go away. When we speak Gods Word and walk in obedience the devil only sees Jesus and Jesus has already defeated him so he will not hang around.
Jesus died because he loves you.
