What is expected of you in this life?


What is expected of us in our calling?
What should we do?
What is expected of us?

Paul comes to the rescue in Rom 5:17: "For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ."

What shall we do?

We are expected by God to reign in this life.

Why?

Because we have been made the righteousness of God by Jesus Christ.

How?

All we have to do is to RECEIVE the abundance of Grace and of His righteousness.

Receive - is the wonderful Greek word lambano which means: to take with the hand, to lay hold, to accept,  to embrace,  to be amazed, to be carried away ...

... having this hope and expectation that does not disappoint, because the love of Elohim has been poured out liberally in our hearts by the Set-apart Spirit (Holy Spirit) which was given to us. [Rom 5:5]

So that as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might Grace (Jesus) reign through righteousness (us) unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. [Rom 5:21]

We are empowered to take charge of each and every situation (sickness, set-back, tragedy, problems, challenges, loss, etc.) according to every good and perfect gift already provided for by our beloved Abba Abba and reign as sons and heirs of the Most High God true to His calling for us.

Isn't God just amazing?


Oh, HalleluYAH!
