When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory (Colossians 3:4).
I often wonder what some people see when they read this verse. Did you notice it says Christ is our life? The Apostle Paul didn’t say, "When Christ, who is going to be our life, shall appear." Rather, he said, "When Christ, who is our life…." Christ is our life now. What does this mean?
Christ is the express image of the invisible God; the Word of God made flesh. Colossians 2:9 says, "For in him (Christ) dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily." Think about this: the one who contains the fullness of the Godhead—the totality of divinity—lives in you now, and is the life in you. If this is true, and it is true, how will affliction or infirmity thrive in your body? Christ being your life means you’re an indestructible and impregnable fortress.
You received His superior and incorruptible life the moment you were born again. The Bible says, "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever" (1 Peter 1:23). Your life is from the Word of God, which lives forever; life that can’t be contaminated or terminated by sickness, disease or death! This should inspire enthusiasm, courage, faith, and boldness in you.
John the apostle wrote, "Beloved, now are we the sons of God…" (1 John 3:2); this reiterates that you have His life. You’re an associate of the God-kind, living, not by blood, but by the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. Arm yourself with this knowledge; meditate on it, and it’s sure to destroy sickness, disease and infirmity from your body.
I function by the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus; living in the victories and triumphs of Christ! I’m superior to Satan, and I’ve overcome the world; because the Greater One lives in me.
