KEY SCRIPTURE: Colossians 3:4 KJV” When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory”.
The key scripture is not saying that, if Christ is our life then, until He shows up, we remain hidden, inoperative or insignificant, no. What the scripture is talking about is that, the appearing of our Lord Jesus would also bring us into the same perfect glory that he is. 1 John 3:2 KJV” Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is”. The key scripture also reveals something worth noting and considering. It says Christ is our life. This means as He is now, so are we. 1 John 4:17 KJV” Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world”.
These revelations from the scriptures is what the good news is all about. Understanding these things will help you to overcome a life of failure and satanic defeat. How is Jesus now? The Lord has absolute victory over death and sin. (Read Rom 6::9 & 10). We have been given that same authority over death and sin. (2 Tim 1: 9&10) 1 Corinth 1:24 reveals that “But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God”. If He is our life then he in us as the power of God and the wisdom of God. The child of God must live with a truly liberated mentality. He must bear a superiority mindset over the evil influence of the dark world. You must approach every assignment in life with absolute confidence. You are greater than any situation that may rise against you for Jesus is your life, what a privilege. Stop giving excuses for failure. You are a success going somewhere to happen.
Christ being our life is the reason we must maintain the crucifixion of old man or the ‘flesh’. It is the reason we must not give way to the flesh. Living in the flesh means living according to the senses, and that completely nullifies the impact of the Christ life in us. It makes us ordinary mortals, who are subjected to the elements of this life. Corruption can then begin to work in us. (2Peter 1:4) Refuse to let the flesh have expression through you. The Oldman was crucified with the Lord, and so keep it crucified. Live in the Spirit by daily acknowledging that Jesus is your life.
Jesus is my life. He is the reason for whatever I am and would ever be. He is my righteousness, my peace, my power, my victory. Jesus is my true identity. I am successful in every way. O what a life.
Romans 6:10 KJV “For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God”. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
