“But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness.”Romans 8:10 NIV
Adam’s rebellion caused corruption to enter the world. When corruption entered, death was released.
But through the righteousness available to each of us through the sacrifice of Jesus we all have the right to life!
“Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else. But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, 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!)”
What incredible joy there is for each one of us who knows Jesus! It is in Him that we truly have life!
Jesus said “I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly!” John 10:10 NKJV
So what does this abundant life look like? It looks like purpose! It looks like a man or woman with a destiny, a calling, an identity and a reason for being.
You see when you plug into a deep relationship with the Creator you start to uncover the reason you were born, to see beyond the natural laws that govern this world and start to see and live in the truth of the abundant life every day!
