Christ Our Life

Christ is our life.Once we were dead in sin, now we are dead to sin and alive to God (Romans 6:11). Once far off from Him and alienated from the life of God by our sinful ignorance caused by our hard heart, we are now, in Christ, brought near to God (Ephesians 4:18; 2:13). Once dead in trespasses and sins, we have been made alive together with Him and have been raised up together, so that we sit with Him in the heavenly places (Ephesians 2:5). As the Bread of life, Jesus satisfies our deepest desires (John 6:35). As the Light of life, He leads us out of darkness into the way of life (John 8:12). With the words of life, he evokes faith that frees us from God’s righteous condemnation and brings us eternal life (John 5:24; 6:63, 68; Romans 8:1). By His resurrection life, He gives us new life and a living hope (1 Peter 1:3). By the Spirit of life, He sets all believers free from the law of sin and death, (Romans 8:2; 6:4). By that same indwelling Spirit, He empowers us to put to death the evil deeds of the body, so that we may live forever (Romans 8:13). By His glorious resurrection power, He enables us to walk in newness of life (Romans 6:4). On the last day, when Christ who is our life appears, we also shall appear in glory – clothed with a glorious body that is animated by undying life (Colossians 3: 4; Philippians3:21). Truly, Christ is our life!
