For as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son also gives life to whom he desires. (WEB)
The entire Godhead is committed to bringing life to those who are spiritually dead.
It is our Father who raises the dead and it is the Son who gives life to all who will receive Him. In Romans 8:11, we read of the Holy Spirit's role in the resurrection process as well... But if the Spirit of him who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you. (WEB)
It is the enemy of our soul that wants to kill, steal and destroy us. At every turn, he tries to get us to believe that we are powerless and even spiritually life-less. But our Elder Brother Jesus, is the very author of life (Acts 3:15). His mission is not only to give us life, but to give us an abundant life as we read in John 10:10... The thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy. I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly. (WEB)
My prayer today is that everyone who has called on the name of the Lord would know that the resurrection power that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in our mortal bodies right now! You have already passed from death to life spiritually and are experiencing eternal life even as you read this blog.
May we all be aware today that the life that flows in Father, Son and Holy Spirit flows in us too! My hope is that we would all become awakened to the life that is within us now and live it to the full!
1 Jesus said these things, and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said, “Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may also glorify you; 2 even as you gave him authority over all flesh, he will give eternal life to all whom you have given him. 3 This is eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God, and him whom you sent, Jesus Christ.
