CHRIST YOUR LIFE

His life as your life

THE ASTONISHING NEWS

THISGOSPEL 55


The Gospel is the astonishing news that something has happened to the Son of God, and the equally astonishing news that in Him something has happened to the human race. If the whole human race fell into ruin in Adam- a creature, a mere man- what happened to the human race in the death of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God? Paul tells us. When Jesus Christ died, we died. But that is only the beginning. When He rose, we rose. He ascended and sits at the right hand of God the Father almighty, the place of honour and love and delight and complete and utter acceptance, and Paul tells us that in HIs ascension we too were lifted up and seated with Him at the Father’s right hand-and there and then welcomed, accepted, embraced forever.” Stephen D Morrison.

Nothing here about the law. Jesus did not live from it. He lived totally from His Father. In Jesus Father is revealed as He is and the nature of sons is displayed, certified and guaranteed (that’s us) in Him. The issue of life was never about the law. It’s about the Fatherhood of God and the sonship of us. The issue now is that God lives in you and that as a son/daughter you are the living expression of God.
