TO THE BIBLE: Romans 6:4 KJV
“Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”
There’s an emphasis on the fact that you’ve received a new life by virtue of your being born again. You’ve got to understand that this life wasn’t reworked, refreshed, or rejuvenated; it’s actually a brand new life altogether, a life of divine quality—the God-life.
When you were born again, your human life wasn’t merely suspended; it was entirely supplanted with the life of Christ. This is what makes it possible for you to live the supernatural and authentic Christian life. The Bible reveals that you died in Christ Jesus when He was crucified; you were buried with Him; and when He arose from the dead, you also arose with Him into a newness of life.
This new life is a life of success, glory, and excellence. It distinguishes you from the ordinary guy or girl who hasn’t known Christ, because you aren’t subject to the same things that limit them. The life you’ve got is from above, and is the very life that makes God who He is. Walk with this consciousness and let those around you experience the essence of your personality.
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for the love and grace you expressed towards me through Jesus Christ. I’m glad I’m a new creation, with the same life that makes you who you are. Therefore, I’m not susceptible to sickness, lack, defeat, or failure. I’m an absolute success and victor in life, in Jesus’ Name.
Meditate on today’s devotion and identify those attributes that distinguish you from the person without the God-kind of life.
