RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR OCTOBER 16, 2023 (THE LIFE HE’S GIVEN US)
TOPIC : THE LIFE HE’S GIVEN US
Today’s Scripture: John 10:10 AMPC
10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).
Many don’t know why Jesus came. There’s a difference between what He came to do for Israel as a nation and what He came to do for the whole world. For the whole world, He came to give life to the full. You can only give what you have, and Jesus didn’t just have life, He was life personified—the embodiment of life (1 John 1:2).
The Bible says, “For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself” (John 5:26). It’s the reason He could give us life to the full. He’s the life-giver: “…it is written, the first man Adam became a living soul. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit” (1 Corinthians 15:45 ASV).
There’s something about this life that He’s given us. Paul helps us understand it some more in Romans 8:2. It says, “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” Paul wasn’t saying the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has “freed” us from death but that it’s made us death-free.
You’re untouchable by death. You’ve been translated from the realm of death into the realm of life.
I’m a partakes of the divine nature, filled with the “maximum load” of God. I walk in divine health, prosperity and victory every day. I am a living testimony of God’s grace, goodness and love. I walk in the consciousness of my new life in Christ, knowing that I am more than a conqueror and victorious in every situation. Thank you, Father, for the glorious life you’ve given me in Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
24 I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, the person whose ears are open to My words [who listens to My message] and believes and trusts in and clings to and relies on Him Who sent Me has (possesses now) eternal life. And he does not come into judgment [does not incur sentence of judgment, will not come under condemnation], but he has already passed over out of death into life.
1 John 5:11-12
11 And this is that testimony (that evidence): God gave us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
12 He who possesses the Son has that life; he who does not possess the Son of God does not have that life.
