Read if you need encouragement.
For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.
1 Corinthians 15:22
The new life we receive through Christ is not a makeover of our outward appearance and wardrobe. It’s not a special feeling or physical sensation we experience while it’s taking place. It’s not winning the lottery and having all our problems go away.
The life we gain when we give our hearts to Jesus is eternal life—the promise of being with our Lord in heaven—but also an abundant life of purpose, joy, and contentment in our earthly existence. We have the two best reasons possible to rejoice over the enormous gifts God extends to us through salvation in his Son. Even though our mortal bodies will perish just as Adam’s did, our spirits will not die but will complete our transformation.
Today, enjoy the gifts of the new life you’ve been given.
