THE GIFT OF GOD IS DIVINE LIFE:
*Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, BUT THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE in Christ Jesus our Lord.*
Many believers are yet to understand what it means to be born again. Many think being born again is to stop drinking and doing bad things. Above verse tells us the outcome of being born again. First of all it tells us “the wages of sin is death.” This means the outcome of sin is death. This is a spiritual law that cannot change. That is why when Samson, though a man of God, when he entertained immorality, death resulted. Even God could not help him. We are living in a generation that deceives us sin is part of life. Sin will result to death – death of your purpose, death of your destiny in God, death to your life. However, sin is no longer a problem today for Jesus Christ destroyed its root and brought us life. So the 2nd part says THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE. The outcome of being born again is eternal Life. Eternal life is the life & nature of God. It is the Divine Life of the Living God. The word “divine” simply means of God. So when we received Christ, we received the Divine life of God. However, many don’t understand this life so today even believers are all over searching for cancer in their bodies instead of discovering the divine life and establishing it. Jesus said whatever you seek you shall find! We cannot receive this divine life of God & continue being the same. The problem is, many have never been taught to understand what this life is. So many have accepted to be put in the same category with people who do not have this life. Remember, divine life is the gift of God. What do we do with a gift? We must receive it, discover what is in that gift and use it. God has given every believer His own divine life, but it is our responsibility to discover this life from the Scriptures, understand it, and use it. So when we hear about breast cancers & all these cancers being advertised, we make use of this gift of God, we don’t submit to evil like a non-believer. What about the believers who have passed on because of these diseases? Don’t you understand we are in a battle? Read your Bible and understand the character of whom we are dealing with – the devil – He is a murderer, but he was rendered powerless, so he uses fear & deception. He tells the believer “even pastor so and so was a pastor, but died of this disease. There are no exceptions.” Hebrews 2:14-15 tells us many succumb because of fear, because fear paralyzes faith. The solution is to build your faith about the divine life by understanding this gift of God & establish it. The divine life is the life of God and He gives this life as a gift to everyone who believes in Jesus Christ. This life is not subject to what the natural human life is subject to. Don’t be deceived. But you must recieve this life, discover it & establish it.
