ALIVE IN CHRIST

“even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)”  – Ephesians 2:5 NKJV

Yesterday, we talked about the phenomenon of being dead in sin, but today, we’ll discuss the opposite – Being dead to sin and alive in Christ.

In today’s tech-savvy world, it’s rare to find someone over 18 without a gadget in hand – be it a phone, laptop, or smartwatch. Therefore, we’ve all experienced that moment of relief when a dead device battery comes back to life after being charged. Just as a lifeless device is revived by power, so too can a person dead in sin find new life through embracing the gospel and the transformative power of Jesus Christ.

The Bible serves as a divine revelation of salvation found in Christ Jesus for all humanity. Throughout its pages, from the Old Testament to the New, a consistent theme emerges: the gospel of Christ.

Our anchor scripture in Ephesians 2:1-5 highlights the transformative power of Christ, who brings life to those who were once dead in trespasses and sins. These verses encapsulates the essence of being alive in Christ, a reality made possible through His redemptive work on the cross.

The profound truth of being alive in Christ is further emphasized in 2 Corinthians 5:17  – anyone in Christ is a new creation; the old has passed away, and the new has come. This speaks to the spiritual rebirth and transformation when we surrender our lives to Jesus Christ.

The state of being alive in Christ is not merely about physical existence but about experiencing the fullness of life found in Him. In John 10:10, Jesus declares, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” Through Christ, we receive both eternal and abundant life—a life characterised by joy, peace, and purpose.

As believers, our identity is rooted in Christ. Galatians 2:20 reminds us, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.” This profound truth underscores the reality of being alive in Christ—we are united with Him in His death and resurrection, and His life now resides within us.

The journey of being alive in Christ is a continual process of growth and transformation. Philippians 1:6 assures us that He who began a good work in us will continue until the day of Christ Jesus. This speaks to the ongoing work of sanctification in the life of every believer as we conform more and more to the image of Christ.

Dear believer, embrace the reality of being alive in Christ. Walk in the confidence of your identity as a new creation, experiencing the abundant life He offers to all who believe.
