A Special Kind Of Life
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
“And this is the record that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life” (1 JOHN 5:11-12)
When you are born again, the very life of Christ is the life that you receive. Jesus said, “I am the Vine, ye are the branches” (John 15: 4). If He’s the Vine and we’re His branches, it means the very life that flows through Him flows through us also. That life is what is called in the Greek language ‘Zoë’ – the God-life! It’s the very essence of divinity; it’s a special kind of life.
When you let that life dominate you, it will destroy every disease; it will destroy every growth; it will paralyze every work of the devil! You see, you’re not what you used to be! When you were born again, you received the life of God. This life is in His Son and he that has the Son has this life. This is the life that makes you super-human. You didn’t get it from your earthly father, you didn’t get it from your lineage, you got it from Jesus! He says “…if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
You’ve got to cast away the wrong mentality: the defeat mentality, the poverty mentality and the weakness mentality. Cast them all down! Reject them from your life and make up your mind you will not be a defeated person. Make up your mind you will not be a victim in life; there’s a new future for you. When you’re conscious of the life of God in you, you will never waste your time praying for deliverance or seeking for a breakthrough, because you will discover that Jesus already broke through for you. He already placed before you an open door that no devil can shut. You’re a new creation with the life, power and abilities of God functioning in you! All you need to do is show up and the devil will back off!
