"...but be thou... made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel." (2 Timothy 1:8-10)
In Christ Jesus, life and immortality have been unveiled. This life isn't the mere human or biological life that's been depraved, degenerate, and broken; it's the life and nature of God that transcends the ordinary human life.
(1 John 5:13)
"These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God."
So, being a Christian means that the human life that's subject to death, with which you came into this world, has been supplanted by the life and nature of God, making you immortal-- making you divine.
Could this actually be real? You might ask if it's true that death could be abolished. Well, the Word says so, and that settles it! Notice the tenses Paul used in our opening Scripture: he said that death has been abolished. That's in the past tense-- it's not a promise, it's been done already. You're not an ordinary person, you're divine!
(2 Peter 1:4)
"By which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature..."
As a replacement for the abolished death-doomed human nature, He gave us divinity. He made us partakers of the divine nature, associates of the God-kind. We're comrades of the divine order! Let this understanding change the way you live-- you're a victor in this life. You have the life of God in you!
As you walk in Christ and preach the Word of God, you're participating in divinity, and unveiling life and immortality through the Gospel. Those who are lost can hear, receive, and become partakers of this glorious life as well. Hallelujah!
Dear Father, I thank You for giving me life and immortality, making me a partaker of your divine nature. I declare by the power of the Holy Spirit working in me, I'm effective in the divine experience and bearing fruits in every good work, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
