TO THE BIBLE: John 5:24 NIV
“I tell you the truth, 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.”
There’s nothing like knowing Jesus and having Him as Lord and Saviour of your life. The guy who isn’t born again is separated from God and is ruled by the forces of sin and death. But when you’re born again, you’re removed from that arena of death and catapulted to the realm of life, where sickness, disease, lack, poverty and failure have no power over you.
However, not all Christians enjoy the same quality of life, simply because many aren’t yet acquainted with the glory of this new life in Christ. Hence, God said, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” (Hosea 4:6). If you’re going to live the victorious Christian life, you can’t afford to be an ignorant teenager. You must know the Word. The Apostle John said, “We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren…” (1 John 3:14). He was aware of his divine positioning.
You’ve got to come to the same awareness that you’ve passed from death to life by virtue of being born again. And so, death should have no hold on your body at all. You aren’t supposed to be sick, broke, disadvantaged, or crushed by any circumstance, because the greater One now lives in you!
I’m living in victory every day of my life, because I’ve got the life of God in me. I’m not ruled by death. I function in the realm of life, reigning by grace through righteousness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
