From Death to Life
We cannot experience the fullness of life God has for us apart from being filled ourselves with the fullness of God.
All throughout the Scriptures, there is a consistent trend we see unfold through the presence and power of God and it is this: God loves to bring dead things to life. God loves to breathe life into lifeless things. God loves to take things that have the appearance of life and actually bring them to life. Over and over again we see that which is lifeless, dead and inanimate brought to life by the presence and power of God and perhaps nowhere do we see that more fully than in Acts 2 with the sending of the Holy Spirit. On this day the very Spirit of God was poured out on men and women, young and adult alike and the world was never the same. Jesus said he came to give us life, life in all its fullness and we are convinced that we can’t live the fullness God intends for us apart from being filled with the fullness of God’s Spirit. If you’ve been feeling dry, shallow, brittle or it just feels like your faking your way through life, maybe what you need is exactly what God promises: Himself.
