“For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.” (10-11)
We can really get in our own heads about the power of sin, since it began as our natural inclinations. Turning around to really believe we’ve been freed from this slavery is also more mental than physical.
Meditate on this truth. Not just the dead to sin part, but what are the implications of being alive to God? That sounds amazing! And it is!
Alive to Him. In tune with Him. Abiding in Him. Depending on Him for the power to produce life-giving, eternal fruit. This is our New Reality in Christ. Access to the Father in a new, pure and powerful way.
We have the alive to God power to live and love selflessly, sacrificially, abundantly, generously, and joyfully.
Let’s pray for the Holy Spirit to bring this glorious truth to resonate in the deepest parts of our soul, today.
