You are a spirit-being, with a soul, living in a fleshly body. Before you are saved, your spirit is dormant, “dead in sins and trespasses. But when you believe in Jesus, His resurrection power electrifies your spirit to life, by coming into it. Paul said, “Even when we were dead in sins, has [He] quickened us together with Christ”.
This is a fulfilment of Jesus’ words, “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” Jn. 11:25. This enables you become partakers of a new life. Peter says in 2 Pet. 1:4 that you are “partakers of the divine nature” The very life of God has entered you and made you part of God’s new creation. Scripture sums it up in Mathew 5:14-16 that, you are now the light of the world. The brightness of the world is hinged on your ability to brighten your corner. This is huge and deep. You are what the world will be. If you shine, the world is shining and if you don’t, darkness takes over.
The reason many have not come to the saving knowledge of Christ, the reason for many despairs and disappointments, the reason for many held in bondage of philosophical arguments and falsehood, the reason why many young people have lost hope and looking for answers elsewhere may be because YOU ARE NOT SHINING IN YOUR CORNER.
