Resurrection Life!

"...The last Adam became a life-giving Spirit."

Praise God that Jesus became a life-giving Spirit! He has given you life, you have it now! You don't have to wait until you get to heaven. Accept that life and live in it now, here on earth.

John 10:10 says, "...I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly."

But it is up to you to live in that life!

Paul said that he was crucified with Christ and that Christ was now living through him (Galatians 2:20). It's a done deal, we just have to recognize it and start living like it. As Watchman Nee said:

"Our old history ends with the cross; our new history begins with the resurrection."

It is through the cross that our old man passed away and it is through the resurrection that we have been made a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17). This Easter let us revel in the new life that Christ gave us. Let us recognize that our old man has already died and we are already a new creation. Let us begin to match our actions with that fact that has already been true through Christ. Lastly, let us recognize the power that lives in us and seek God on how to walk in that power every day.

"and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places"
Ephesians 1:19-20
