Alive In Christ
by Bronwyn Marcus
We are no longer spiritually dead but are made ALIVE in Christ! Many Christians walk around with no life in them, they do not fully realise the power of God to call the things that are not as though they are! (Romans 4:17) God breathes life into every living thing, He breathes his life into us!
Revelation 3:1 -2“You have a reputation for being alive but you are dead.Wake up!...”
Awake! Awake oh church. The church is only dead when she tries to do things in her own strength. NO! We need God’s strength and wisdom and power! He must be the loudest voice. Let God speak, not mans opinion but God’s truth which comes through the word!
God says in Ezekiel 37:5that He will make breath enter you and you will live!
If you feel dry and dead, like you are just surviving, know that God can make you alive!
John 1:4 declares “In him was life and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it!”
Life has a way of hitting us hard and we forget that we are not made of this world, we become like Peter walking on the water only to look down and start sinking! We were made to walk on water! Dont look down, look up. Dont look at your surroundings, your experiences or your financial situation. Look up and look at God! How amazing He is. He is our provider and He is our comforter and He has power!
We need to die to ourselves. I am not talking about walking around homeless wearing sackcloth; I am talking about our pride and our own human wisdom. Kill that thing! Go to God, Trust in God and allow Him to lead you by His powerful Spirit.
