But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved). –Ephesians 2: 4-5 (NKJV).
On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out saying “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. “He who believes in Me as the Scriptures has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’’ -John 7: 37-38.
That I take in breath every now and then does not really mean that I am living
Breathing outside of Jesus is deadness
I am alive when I am at peace with God
I am alive when I can still hear His voice
I am alive when I am sensitive to His touch
Sensitive to His very presence
I live when I am dead to sin
When all that is in me is attuned to His righteousness that is by faith
I am alive when I am no longer hungry and thirsty
When I am just free to love
I am alive when in Him I bear His fruit
The breath my mother gave to me is not the real thing
It only tells me what I have in common with a bird
I became alive when I BELIEVED
And because I believe streams of Living water flow from within me
Thank God I am alive
Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood; you have no life in you. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is real food and My blood is real drink. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood remains in Me and I in him. Just as the Living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on Me will live because of Me. This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your forefathers ate manna and died, but he who feeds on this bread will live forever.”-John 6: 53-58(NIV).
