You're a Life-Giving Spirit (April 1st, 2019)

"So it is written: 'The first man Adam became a living being'; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit." (1 Corinthians 15:45 NIV)

Jesus Christ is the last Adam. He's the life-giver. And because He lives in you by the Holy Spirit, and has given you the same life as His, you're a life-giver now.

We tell people that the Christian isn't an ordinary person-- he's one with the Lord, on the same mission and purpose with the Lord. Jesus declared in John 10:10:

(John 10:10 NIV)

"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."

Jesus left no doubts about His purpose: He came to give eternal life to those who believe in Him. He gave further confirmation of this truth with He said:

(John 10:27-28)

"My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life..."

No wonder He's described in our opening Scripture as the life-giving spirit! Now that you're born again, you're one with Christ.

(1 Corinthians 6:17)

"...he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit..."

You've become one spirit with the Lord-- as He is, so are you (1 John 4:17); therefore, you're a life-giving spirit. Not only has He made you a partaker of His life, you're also a dispenser or distributor of eternal life.

It's your life's purpose to bring the lost into the life of righteousness through the Gospel. 2 Timothy 1:10 lets us know that Jesus Christ has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel. Eternal life is unveiled through the preaching of the Gospel. You bear the words of life. As you speak, salvation and the righteousness of God are revealed.

Jesus said:

(John 20:21)

"...As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.”

He's chosen you to manifest the God-life to the nations! He's sent you as a bearer of His Gospel, to bring the lost into the liberty of the sons of God-- into the glorious life in Christ. Praise God!


As Jesus is, so am I. I'm a life-giving spirit-- a dispenser and distributor of eternal life and of the eternal realities of the Kingdom. I bring joy to many today as I share the Gospel with them, which is the power of God to transform their lives, and catapult them into their inheritance in Christ. Hallelujah!
