The meaning of ‘Alive’ is: living; not dead. Romans 8:11 says: “If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through His Spirit which dwells in you”. The fact that the Holy Spirit is in you is evidence that you God’s life giving force is working in you.
Our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 3:16) I love the new covenant because limitations that were previously in place have been brought down. The Presence of God is not confined to a specific place anymore. Our bodies have become the ‘ark’ where He dwells and we can be constantly in His presence. Coming alive is letting His glory shine through you to the world. The more we spend time with God the more we know Him and as we behold the Glory of the Lord, we are transformed into His image (2 Corinthians 3:18). At some point even our words and actions reflect Him and the life of Jesus is manifested through our bodies.
Coming Alive is having the Word of God in you. I remember the scenario where Satan came to tempt Jesus. At times he used words in the Bible to try and deceive Jesus but Jesus had such a great understanding of Scripture that for every word that the devil used He was able to defend His stand by using it. It is not just about knowing the Word of God but also practicing and living it. It isn’t just about memorizing verses but letting His will prevail over your life.
Coming alive is being made complete; attaining righteousness through Christ; being equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:17) “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God” (John 1:1) He is the Alpha and the Omega. Let Him be your light-He is the light of life. As the saying goes “The more light the more life”.
In conclusion, coming alive is being clothed with the garment of salvation. It is having Jesus as master in your life. It is walking in His light. It’s amazing how in the creation chronology, God says “Let there be light” and there was light! Yet the heavenly bodies were created on the fourth day! Rely on God for He is the source of all things. Come to a point where you no longer live but Christ lives in you. It is time for you to COME ALIVE!
