Receive Sucess?

How to win in life.
Unleash your potential
Tap into talents

Mmmm...sounds great...and what good American doesn't want to rule and reign in life?
We expend ourselves in the pursuit. Striving. Grasping

But listen to this:
Rm 5:17 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.

There is a completely different posture here. Receive. Accept the Gift. Golly. That just sounds so passive. Reign in life....through...the One, Jesus Christ. Not through me, or mine, or even ours. Through the ONE...the only ONE! Geez....where is the effort? Don't I need a peak performance to Reign in Life? Apparently not.

Thanks for a great word Pastor Rob!
