Romans 6:11 (KJV); Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Many people in this world simply exist. If they look back at their lives and how they lived, their existence in the flesh is all they have to show for their days on the earth. As such, they fall victim to the vagaries of time and the critical pen of history that refuses to spare them even a footnote in the biographies of great men.
It is a sad thing child of God and you must make up your mind to leave your mark on this world.
How is this possible?
Our theme scripture helps define life at a much higher dimension.
You must understand that God does not want us simply existing. He wants us to be ALIVE UNTO HIM because that is what true living is about.
Being alive unto God is what propels us above the boring, meaningless and mediocre life majority of the people in the world live, to the exciting, purposeful and victorious life we have been called to as children of God.
A man who is alive unto God is continuously conscious of the events, convictions and conversations in the realm of the spirit, which have a ripple effect on things in the physical realm.
A man who is alive unto God never looks at anything on the surface to understand motive, intention and purpose. He is not deceived by the lusts of this world, he is not deterred by his enemies and neither is he blindsided by flattery because he is fixed only to the vision of God and the fulfilment of divine purpose.
At the end of his time on the earth, the testimony of his life will be bigger than the world could give. It will be inflamed with the glory to instruct the generations to come.
