“…as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we all should walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6: 4)
Jesus’s resurrection was proof of everlasting Life, a demonstration of God’s glorious power and love for man. It confirms for all of us that not only are we God’s immortal ideas, we are meant to be made new with this understanding every day. We can demonstrate a resurrected state of thought in each moment, and live the freshness that is ours to celebrate.
As Paul tells us in this verse, Christ was raised from the dead by the Father and His glory. So we can recognize that our own renewing is not by human action and accomplishment either, but by the glory of God. It comes to us naturally through the fact of our own Christly nature as the reflection of God’s own being, His conscious and perpetual living. We can recognize who we really are, just as Jesus did, and go forward in this knowledge.
Knowing that we are always at one with God, perfect Life, we can experience a life that feels full and new.
Let’s not hesitate to walk in this resurrected consciousness. It is never too soon and it is never too late. Every day demands a renewed outlook, a fresh awareness of Life and goodness. Each hour beckons us into a grateful acceptance that this refreshing is God’s requirement for us; it is just as divinely natural for us to rise up and feel brand new, as it was for Jesus to emerge from death’s tomb into the full demonstration of glorious Life!
