Romans 5:17 – For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!
Reign in Life
This is another redraw of one of my original designs from my very first binder. I especially enjoy the AMPC version of this verse which says that we will reign as kings in life through Jesus. This verse reminds us that as followers of Jesus, God has given us the authority to rule and reign in life (as kings or queens!)
John Bevere says this about reigning in life:
One of my dictionary’s primary definitions of a king or queen is “one that is supreme or preeminent in a particular sphere.” The word reign is defined as “dominance or widespread influence.” To reign as a king or queen is to have supreme dominance and influence over a particular sphere.
In what sphere are we to be unsurpassed or paramount? The sphere of life. In other words, life on this earth is not to surpass us; we are to govern it. This is the Word of God, His promise to us!

The crown in this design reminds us that through Jesus we can “reign as kings in life” (AMPC). Download the PDF here!
