God is Life


Rom 8:12-14

Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation — but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, 14 because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.


Spiritual death is a separation from God. We were created to always have a connection and a relationship with God. When God talks about death he is referring to a separation from a degree of the His presence and power because God is life. When God told Adam that the day in which he eats of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil he will die, God did not mean it figuratively but he meant it in actual terms (see Gen 2:17) Adam experienced a separation from God and this is the reason why corruption was introduced to humankind and the whole of creation under his domain.

God has given us a chance to have life and this life is in His son(see John 1:1-4). When we give ourselves wholly to the lord Jesus we get to enjoy new life. The advantages of this life include victory and dominion over the devil, sin, disease, death etc.
