(Eternal Life Is Yours Now; Enjoy It)
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
TO THE BIBLE: “A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.” (John 10:10 MSG)
The life of the new creature in Christ is supernatural. Recall that after the resurrection of Jesus, the disciples were together in a room, and though the doors were tightly shut, the Lord suddenly came in among them. That was a demonstration of the limitless nature of the new creature. Faith was what you required to be born again.
Having been born again, the real thing has come; eternal life has now been imparted to your spirit. The life in you now isn’t something you’re trying to get or that you’re “having faith” for; it’s a vital reality now. Hebrews 11:1 describes faith as the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. It’s the evidence, proof, or title deed of unseen realities.
You might then want to ask, “So, where’s the place of faith in the life of the new creature?” The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:7: “For we walk by faith, not by sight,” meaning that it is by faith that you walk (or live) in the reality of the unseen realm—beyond the ordinary plane.
Nevertheless, the life of God in you now is a present-day reality. Be conscious of this, and not only will it become more real to you, but you’ll also live every day without limits.

Speak: I have the life of God in me. I live beyond the limits! Eternal life is working in every fibre of my being, and I’m full of the Holy Ghost! I’m inundated by the power of the Spirit, to live beyond barriers today!
