God Has Made Every Provision Necessary

for His New Creation to Reign in Life

by Frederick Drummond, Sr.

1. The Gift of His Righteousness = We live a justified life.

No more feeling bad about your failures and defeats

(For if by the one man's offense death reigned through the one. much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.) Therefore, as through one man's offense judgment came to all men resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man's righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so also bv one Man's obedience main will be made righteous. (Rom. 5:17-19)

2. The Gift of His Abounding Grace = We live a powerful life.

No more fearful avoiding of the enemy and his methods

Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But w here sin abounded, grace abounded much more, so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Rom. 5:20-21)

3. The Power of Christ to Live a Justified Life Abounding in Grace = We always win.

No more living by your feelings and circumstances

A. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power mav be of God and not of us. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken, struck down, but not destroyed always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be
B. manifested in our body. For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus' sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So then death is working in us, but life in you.
C. And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, "I believed and therefore I spoke," we also believe and therefore speak, knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up with Jesus, and will present us with you. For all things are
D. for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.
E. Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is
F. working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. (2 Cor. 4:7-18)

Reigning in Life Is All About Grace

1. Life and not God will run your life if you don't abound in grace.

2. Grace is not available to those who look to their circumstances.

3. Only by abounding in grace can you always come out on top (2 Cor. 9:6-14).

4. Grace is our only real source of glory and thanksgiving.

5. Grace alone can strengthen your heart so that you don't give in to fear and fail.
