THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
When I hear of people watching the movie: "The
Walking Dead," I'm always reminded of the verses below.
1 “And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses
2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of
this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the
spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past
in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and
of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath,
even as others.”
LIGHT from the WORD.
It is IMPOSSIBLE to be dead physically and walking or
talking on earth.
But it IS possible to be alive physically and be spiritually
dead, or apart from God.
It is possible to:
to hear and not understand,
laugh and not have joy,
to see - yet not know!
Those possibilities occur only in people who are
"dead in trespasses and sin."
There's only ONE cure!
And Jesus called it being "born again"! (See John 3:3)
When a person,
"dead in trespasses and sin"
surrenders to Jesus, then that person's spiritual life is
RENEWED - REGENERATED - REFORMED!
This "new creation" is formed when God "seals" a person
in the Spirit of God. (See Eph. 1:13)
A new relationship is formed - one with Jesus.
Jesus gives that person LIFE--REAL LIFE! (See John 1:4 and John 1:12)
And that new relationship becomes the most important
in the person's life!
The person begins to:
hear the Word of God and have faith (See Rom. 10:17),
have ETERNAL joy (See 1Cor. 2:9),
and to KNOW the things of God (See John 14:26).
The question, dear reader is this: are YOU dead or alive?
Are you walking dead, or living REAL LIFE?
The answer is found in whether you have SURRENDERED
your life to Jesus!
