It is an amazing thing to be alive, to be breathing, talking and loving among friends and family. But it is an even more amazing thing to be alive in Christ, which is an eternal life of transformation, renewal and fellowship among a dark world. And this spiritual living can not be attained apart from Christ no matter how much you meditate and “seek yourself.”
“And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,”
Ephesians 2:1 NKJV
To be alive in the Spirit means to be dead in the flesh, dead to sin and trespasses. The only way to become dead to sin is only by believing in Jesus Christ and being washed by His blood and being filled with the Holy Spirit. There is no other way to be made alive except through Jesus Christ.
Many spiritualism teachers and searchers among different religious perspectives believe they are alive in the Spirit. But without faith in Christ and a washing away of sins, they are unfortunately just as far away from living in the Spirit as a non spiritual seeker.
