‘For the scripture says ‘the first man, Adam, was created a living being’; but the last Adam is the life-giving Spirit.’ (1 Corinthians 15:45 GNB)

In John 10:10 the Lord Jesus declared, ‘…I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.’ He left no one in doubt as to His purpose; He came to give eternal life to those who would believe in Him. He gave further confirmation to this truth when He said, ‘My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life…’ (John 10:27-28). No wonder He is described in our opening scripture as the life-giving Spirit.

Having been born again, you are one with Christ. 1 Corinthians 6:17 says, ‘…he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.’ You have become one spirit with the Lord; as He is so are you (1 John 4:17). Therefore, you are a life-giving spirit. Not only has He made you a partaker of His life, you are also the distributor of divine life. This is your purpose on earth - to bring the lost into the life of righteousness through the Gospel. This is your job; this is your ministry; this is your life.

1 Peter 2:9 (AMP) says, ‘But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, God’s own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light.’ This means that you have been called and sent by God to manifest and administer the will, purpose and character of God to your world; you have become a conveyor of His life and of His goodness.
