Read: Romans 6:4-5
"Whoever hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life." - John 5:24
Humans constantly search for the fountain of youth to achieve immortality. They explore in vain for a way to live forever. When we are "born again," we actually cross from eternal death into eternal life. It happens the instant we believe that Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins and rose again to give us a new life in Him. At that very moment, we take our first step out of this mortal world and into the immortal
. Kingdom of God
Then we experience life as Christ prepared it for us. We are free from the power of sin and the lusts and expectations of this world. Our old nature is crucified with Christ, and He lives His life through us (Galatians 2:20). We live each new day in glorious freedom as the body of Christ.
Lord Jesus, make our lives a living witness of the power of Your gospel. Keep us ever mindful that Your Spirit resides in our hearts to empower us to live Godly lives now and throughout eternity.
Thought for the Day
Exhibit the power of Christ’s gospel through a life, which is victorious as well as surrendered.
