ALIVE IN CHRIST JESUS

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Eph 2:4-6

.4 But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, 5 that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God's grace that you have been saved!) 6 For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.

NLT

Sin brought death to humankind but Christ came and brought life to us. The only reason you have spiritual life is because you are united with Christ who is the source of all life. There is nothing you can do that warrants this life. Let your faith always be in the lord Jesus to sustain you because He is able to keep you and present you before the father blameless.

New rules and regulations cannot ultimately make you closer to God. Let your faith be in the lord Jesus and not in the practice of any rules or regulations. The work of the devil is to attempt to take us back to laws because he knows that is where his power lies since all that is in the domain of the flesh and not the spirit. You obey laws from a decision of the mind and flesh furnished by a cycle of accusations from Satan, you please God walking in faith by the spirit not the flesh (from the power supplied by Christ to your spirit-which is grace) furnished by boldness to God’s throne through the finished work of Christ.

Go into today thankful to the lord for what He did for you on the cross. Thank Him because you are seated with Him in heavenly places far above where Satan can access and know that you have unrestricted access to God’s throne where you obtain mercy and grace to carry you for the week, the month and beyond (see Heb 4:16).

Prayer: My father in heaven, I thank you for your love and mercy. I pray I will see more of you and less of me daily; that I will take up my cross daily and follow you. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
