Abundance of Grace

For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive an abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!-Romans 5:17 (Berean Study Bible)

Definition of abundance: superfluity, comprehensively all-around, what exceeds normal expectations, superfluously.

The people during Jesus' earthly ministry received a ridiculous, overflowing, abundant amount of grace. Think about the woman of Samaria, or about the woman with the issue of blood, or the sinful woman who anointed Jesus feet and wiped them with her tears. Think about Peter who denied Jesus moments before He would die for him, and all of mankind.

That is the same grace that we receive as Believers, a ridiculous, superfluous, overflowing amount!! And it is free! A gift.

And that overflowing, superfluous, abounding, abundant grace combined with the free gift of righteousness (right standing with God) is what causes us to reign in this life
