Sin Can No Longer Hold Me Down. I Have Got The Victory In Christ Jesus
“Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound”.
Romans 5:20 (KJV)
Grace-the unmerited, unearned, undeserved favour of God-is more abundant than all of your sins. Oftentimes people become sin-conscious and everything they talk about is laced with sin, as though what sin did in Adam was more powerful than what Jesus did in the new creation.
Our text today is very comforting: “[. . .] But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound” (Romans 5:20, KJV). The Amplified version of the same text is as follows: “[. . .] But where sin increased and abounded, grace (God’s unmerited favour) has surpassed it and increased the more and superabounded” (Romans 5:20).
What a knockout to the sin in our lives! No matter the sin in your life, factor in the abundant grace of God that completely obliterates it and puts you in right standing with God. Sin has been disarmed of the power to unravel your right standing with God. This is what throws the enemy into confusion. He was used to holding man as guilty, but then Jesus came and man was free from the devil’s hold. When the veil that separated the Holy of Holies was torn, God gave man unconditional access to His presence. We need no longer come cringing. We can come like a child ready to fall into the waiting arms of the Father.
Beloved, wake up every day and celebrate your right standing, your righteousness in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21). Rejoice in the great work that Jesus did on the cross, and you will soon find yourself behaving in line with your right standing. I welcome you to a new life of victory over the dominion of sin.
