Leverage On The Sacrifice Of Jesus By Bishop Mike Okonkwo
Topic: Leverage On The Sacrifice Of Jesus
Dearly Beloved, I bring you greetings in the name that is above every other name, Jesus Christ the Son of the living God and our soon coming King. Today, I want to drop some thoughts in your spirit for you to meditate upon. This is especially in light of the message of Grace and what Jesus accomplished for us at the cross.
The truth about this like I’ve always said, is that the sacrifice of Jesus is perfectly perfect and completely complete. If there was one thing that Jesus’ death did not deal with, He would not have risen. Christ paid for your complete and total victory here on earth, but the question is, how many of us are leveraging on this sacrifice?
To leverage on something means to “use to its maximum advantage”; so, it’s not to use to five percent or ninety-nine percent advantage, but the maximum – one hundred percent advantage. Let’s look at this scripture.
“For if because of one man’s trespass (lapse, offense) death reigned through that one, much more surely will those who receive [God’s] overflowing grace (unmerited favor) and the free gift of righteousness [putting them into right standing with Himself] reign as kings in life through the one Man Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).” – Romans 5:17 (AMPC)
Our text makes it very clear that our heritage as children of God is to reign as kings and queens in this life, through Christ Jesus. Beloved, it’s not a suggestion but a guarantee. This means that as far as God is concerned, everything required for you to reign in life, has been provided already.
But the question I’d like to ask you today is, “Are you truly reigning in life?”
Unfortunately, many believers continue to wallow in penury, poverty, lack, disappointment and shame, despite the embarrassment of riches that Christ’s sacrifice provided to us. Do you know why? Because they have refused to leverage on – maximally take advantage of the benefits of Jesus’ sacrifice. May this not be your portion in the name of Jesus.
Make up your mind to be one who not only has an understanding of the benefits of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, but maximizes the benefits of this perfect sacrifice.
I commend you to God and to the Word of His grace, that is able to build you up, strengthen and perfect all that concerns you. This week, creation will work in your favor, everywhere you go, the favor of God will surround you as a shield. I bless you today in the name of Jesus, Amen.
In His Royal Service,
