Note to self:
Trust God for today’s resurrection life. My Father in heaven is a God who makes promises and fulfills them. He demonstrated His power for life by raising Christ from the grave. He gave me that promise of forever-life and proved that He is able to fulfill that promise. My hope is a sure thing – a done deal.
I live in a new heavenly age that belongs to God – one that is superimposed over and on top of an evil age – one that is coming, and already is.
I live out my resurrected-forever-life *now* – today. I live it now, by faith, trusting Him to do the living in me.
My life – looks like His life, because it is His life – full of selfless love, mercy, compassion, kindness, gentleness, self-control, purity and holiness.
His Life – my Life – gives glory to the Father… it displays His splendor, for it belongs to Him. It comes from Him in power and goes back to Him in glory.
My life – His Life – is housed in a weak container – but hey, my Life is about Jesus and His power, not about me and my own power …
