Co-Regents of the Universe

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

… We shall also reign with Him … (II Timothy 2:12).

The Greek word used to translate “reign” here is sumbasileuo, meaning “to be co-regent.”

By God’s measureless and matchless grace, one day we will rule as co-regents with the Lord Jesus Christ, because the Father has made us one with Him, as our Head. As a part of Christ’s Body – His governing Body – we will reign from the “heavenly places” in the “ages to come.”

This reigning is predicated on our suffering with Him here, in which all members of His Body participate as well. This should serve as a great encouragement to the believer as they endure the daily trials of this temporary life.

If we are enduring, we shall be reigning together also (CLNT).
