Romans 5:21 (NET)  
so that just as sin reigned in death, so also grace will reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

When Denis was an unbeliever,  he did not know that he was spiritually dead, but when he accepted the Lord Jesus and became born again, his spirit now became alive to God and he now had a personal relationship with the Lord.

Because of this new relationship with God,  grace reigned in his life. As a result, sin no longer had dominion over him(see Romans 6:14)  and he now walked in great spiritual power. He totally understood Romans 5:21(today's verse) because it was his experience. Because of his right standing with God that led to him having a robust relationship with God,  grace reigned in his life and he enjoyed the numerous benefits. He understood that the source of this grace was his relationship with God.
Before he was born again,  he was spiritually dead and could not have a relationship with God.  Because of this,  sin reigned in his life through death(disconnection from God). But now that he was born again,  he was now dead to the old life of sin and made alive to the new life of righteousness.

2 Peter 1:2 reveals that grace and peace are multiplied to us through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. The knowledge of God has been made possible through the righteousness of Christ we have inherited because of our faith in Him. Grace and peace are spiritual substances that can fill us (see John 1:14) and empower us to live the divine life in these bodies of flesh.

One of the biggest issues in the world today is that believers have received the gift of righteousness through faith in Christ,  but they do not use this gift to cultivate a robust relationship with God,  and because of this,  grace does not reign in their lives but they still struggle with sin.

Go into today knowing that the basis of our right standing and relationship with God is the righteousness of Jesus. This inherited righteousness should be the basis of a relationship with God that would cause His grace to multiply in our lives and empower us to live righteous lives that give expression to the blessing (see Psalm 24:4-5).

Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you always remember that your relationship with Him is not based on your righteousness but based on the righteousness of Christ. Ask the Lord to help you cultivate a robust relationship with Him and live a life ruled by His grace and peace.
