That We Might Live Through Him
I John 4:9 NKJV “In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.”
That we might live through Him… That’s mind blowing. Think about it for a few minutes; “that we might live through Him.”
Just before He left the earth, He said to the disciples, “A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also.” In other words, He is the Source of our lives; the reason for our existence; our lives are dependent on His! Without Him we are dead! Let that sink in. Colossians 3:3-4 says it all, “For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.” Christ is our life! Hallelujah!
Paul said, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” Listen, this is not theory, it is very real and true! And you’ve got to walk in the light of it if you want to stop living an ordinary life. Stop being deceived by your physical body; you are so different from those of the world; there’s a much greater life in you; Christ is your life now!
And if Christ is your life, then everything about you should be alive and well! That’s why you cannot be barren! That’s why that sickness should be out of your body now! That’s why you should have perfect sight! And that’s why whatever is dead should come alive by contact with you! Yes!!!
