The Christian life starts with a new birth. Jesus said that it is like a well within that spring up to eternal life (God’s life).  You now have God’s life within. It is the gift of God.  These things are ours in Christ because he gave his life, bore our sins, died on the cross for us. Now is raised from the dead to die no more.

John tells us;“We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us.  And our fellowship is with the Father and with his son, Jesus Christ.” (1Jn.1:3)  Wow!  Can you even imagine this!  Fellowship with God!!

Real Christianity is more than regular church attendance, reading and memorizing Bible verses, being involved in humanitarian activities.(all of this is beneficial)  It is getting to know, (fellowship and walk) the living God.  This is given to us all by grace, God’s unmerited favor!

As you read through your Bible, you see God’s reality demonstrated over and over again.  Mostly to a few in the Old Testament times and then opened to all in the New Testament.

“I will pour out my Spirit on all people.  Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.” (Acts.2;17-18 NIV)

“For we are the temple of the living God.  As God has said:’I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God and they will be my people.” (2 Co.6:16 NIV)  Spend some time each day, in thanksgiving, prayer and in Bible reading. Talk to God. As a believer in Christ, it is your privilege!  You will find Christ becomes real.
