New Life

(Eph 2:1) “And you hath he quickened who was dead in trespasses and sin.”

 

Thank the Lord for the shed blood of Jesus Christ, because without it we couldn’t experience new life in Christ Jesus.  There is no doubt that if we have been saved we have been raised from spiritual death to spiritual life in Christ Jesus.  Thus, we are not the same men/women we used to be.  Those who have new life in Christ Jesus don’t act the same as they did when they were spiritually destitute; they don’t have the same appetites which they had when they were spiritually dead or operating by the rules of the old nature.  Those who have new life don’t live under the oppression, depression and suppression of the Kingdom of Darkness.  New life means we live our lives in the light of Christ Jesus.  New life means we are no longer controlled by the flesh, the world or the devil, but we are controlled by Christ Jesus through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.  New life means we have died to the old man and his ways of living and thinking and have come alive to the thoughts and ways of Jesus Christ.  Thus, if you have taken on this new life, let not sin reign in your mortal body that you should obey it in the lust thereof, neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God (Rom 6:11-12).  Thus, all that we are, even down to the members of our body should be used for Christ Jesus.
