Living the Risen Life by Transformation

No mere tweaking of the body of death, a radical transformation is required for Living the Risen Life.

A sea change in priorities.  An overhaul of our entire world view.  A conversion from the relentless pursuit of the desires of our hearts to continually seeking the will of God’s heart.

How do we accomplish such a complete transformation? This happens when we take God at His Word, hearing and believing what He says.

1 John 3:18 Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. 19 This then is how we know that we belong to the truth, and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence 20 whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. 21 Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God 22 and receive from him anything we ask, because we obey his commands and do what pleases him. 23 And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. 24 Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.

Just as He said, this is how we cross over from death to life, not that we’ll always live perfectly, but our perspective and our desires have been changed and He who knows our hearts will give us life everlasting.

Cross over from death to life
