YOUR NEW LIFE

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Rom 5:18-19

18 Consequently, just as the result of one trespass was condemnation for all men, so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification that brings life for all men. 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.

NIV

Ebola virus is very much talked about in the world today. Its popularity picked up considerate heat when the virus (through one man) entered Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country. Some medical professionals have made it abundantly clear that such diseases are hard to cure because of the very dynamic nature of viruses but one way they can easily find a cure is if they can find a man who was once infected with the virus who is now cured; from Him they could carefully obtain antibodies with which they could develop a vaccine or cure. I am not very vast in medical science and hope I haven’t misrepresented the scientific principle I am trying to explain here. One thing is clear though, Ebola virus came into Nigeria through one man, and the same virus can be cured through another man whose body has succeeded in overcoming the incurable disease and recovered from the plague.

The virus of sin came into Humankind through one man (Adam) who was conquered by it. The solution to sin has also come into this world through one man (Jesus; the last Adam) who conquered sin. You are now in Christ Jesus and that His life that has the ability to conquer sin is now in you. Do not give room to the devil by thinking sin is too great to be conquered anymore. Know that it is not by your power but you now have a new powerful life that conquers sin. Walk in that life and not in the old life which is flesh. This new life is the spirit life; the old life is the flesh life (see John 3:6). You walk in this new life by living consciousness under total surrender to the lordship of Christ and control of the spirit.

Go into today knowing that you are now born of the Spirit; you have a new life in you and this life is always victorious and flourishing.

Prayer: dear heavenly father, I thank you for your word today. I pray you help me walk in my new life and never again in the flesh, in Jesus name. Amen
