The secret of being a good RECEIVER

If we should make a list of what we need to do in order to reign in life, how long would that list be? How many points would we have to write down? It is very interesting to observe the Apostle Paul’s words in Romans 5:17:

For if by the one man’s offence 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.

We reign in life through the ONE, not through the one hundred keys or formulas. And we can see that the focus is on receiving, not doing. We accept and receive the great gifts of grace and righteousness, and it will cause us to reign in life. Doing will be a fruit, but it starts with receiving. Let’s accept what He has already given to us instead of trying to work for our self-righteousness and trying to earn favor with God.

Today we bring the third and last article on the series from Luke 15. Peter Youngren teaches on how we need to come to the place of “accepting our acceptance.” This is a great revelation from the story of the prodigal son. We also start a new series by Archbishop David Huskins on Real Change. It is the first time we have had teaching articles from him in GGN, and we believe it will be a great blessing. A testimony from him is also included.
