Ephesians 2:4-5 (NIV) But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions – it is by grace you have been saved.
Today’s Bible passage speaks of a life that is both spiritual and everlasting. It’s important to grasp that our presence in the physical world hinges on our physical vitality. Similarly, to partake in the eternal realm, one must possess eternal life. When the devil and certain angels transgressed, they were banished from God’s presence, forfeiting this life. Likewise, when humanity fell into sin, we too were ousted from God’s presence and lost our access to eternal life, as sin cannot coexist in the eternal realm.
Through God’s boundless love and grace, we are revived alongside Christ. Our sole avenue to eternal life lies in Christ Jesus. This is because God united us with Christ when He rose into eternal life. It is through His name that we gain access to the things of God, for no one can approach the Father except through Christ (see John 14:6).
Embracing eternal life brings a multitude of blessings. It represents the pinnacle of existence, holding sway and superiority over all other spheres of life, including the lower spiritual realms where spirits and demons operate, as well as this three-dimensional physical realm.
As you step into today, recognize that if you’re in Christ, you possess a quality of life that even the devil and demons lack. Consequently, you can exercise authority and dominion over them and all their endeavors (see Luke 10:19).
Declaration: Through Christ the Lord, I possess eternal life. I walk in this life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
