“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.”

– Ephesians 2: 4-7 NIV

Faith in Christ provides me inspiration and empowerment to live the victorious spiritual life revealed in God’s word and modeled through the life of Jesus Christ. Through the inspiration of God’s word and the working of His mighty strength by the power, presence and person of His Spirit, I am able to do all things that lead to progress, success and prosperity, through faith in Christ, who strengthens me. A victorious spiritual life is the life of Jesus Christ manifested in and through me that allows me to experience the fullness of life Christ came for us to have. It is a life that allows me to experience the ‘immeasurably more lifestyle’ that is exceeding, abundantly more than what I could ask or think when I allow His power to work within me according to Ephesians 3:20.

The ‘immeasurably more lifestyle’ is a life that transcends the reality of this world. It allows me to consistently experience the spiritual blessings, favor and grace afforded by being raised with Christ and seated with Him in the heavenly realms. Faith in Christ equips, enables and empowers me to experience the transcending life as I demonstrate proactive initiative to access the unseen world of the heavenly realms where God has provided me access to Him to live the victorious spiritual life. “In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.” – Ephesians 3:12 NIV As we saw with Hannah, Elijah and Jesus, prayer becomes the means by which we access the heavenly realms in order to make use of the spiritual blessings we receive from Christ in order to live the victorious spiritual life.

“Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.” – 1 John 2:6 NIV  It is God’s desire that we come to know and rely on the love He has for us so we may live victoriously in this world and transcend life in a way that inspires and draws others out of darkness into the marvelous light of His love. A transcending life is a life raised up with Christ in the face of misfortune, injustice and grief and illuminates the spiritual blessings God provides us in the heavenly realms. “I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.” – Philippians 3:10-11 NIV

May God bless you and help you to transcend life and access the spiritual blessings in Christ He provides us so you may experience the fullness of life Christ came for us to have.
