Living by Christ’s Provision and in His - Power Part 2

We need to stop living in self-deprivation. Although we live in a broken world, God wants us to look up to Him and His greatness and provision. We have a great inheritance.

Romans 6:4-5 4We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. 5If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.
Two things happened with the resurrection. We died to sin and were raised in newness of life. We should live like we have new life! Our inheritance is the Lord Himself! To know and fellowship with Him throughout eternity.

Jesus inherited His position in heaven, but He shares it with all believers. Because of this we should be living a Holy (set apart) life here on earth. Hebrews 12:14 says, “Without Holiness we can’t see God.”

We can live this way because Christ’s power is now in us. And it is inexhaustible. We can be transformed. We can turn from sins. For His Glory and our benefit.
