Alive in Christ
John 6:63 (KJB) It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
It is the Spirit of God that gives life. It is the Spirit which breathes new life into darkened dead hearts.
Man is born with a dead and unprofitable heart. A natural heart is not alive until God gives it the spiritual “breath of life.” (Ezekiel 36:26, John 3:5)
Only God can give new life. Life is not something that mankind can stir awake, work up in himself, or be brought about through his own works. It is only available through the working of the supernatural power of God.
God’s Word contains the power of life (Hebrews 4:12). It is His Word which ushers spiritual life into the heart of mankind.
