There is nothing in this world, nothing, that can even come close to the eternal satisfaction found only in our intimate unity to Jesus Christ and our new life walking with Him, in Him, each step of our life. This new spiritual/miraculous life is lived out not by our own strength, but by this unity to God's Spirit, by the Spirit living in and through us. Being a Christian is spiritual, not of the natural order, so we must allow the Holy Spirit to live through us. Paul said, "it is no longer I who lives but Christ who lives in me."
At Easter, when we are praising our Risen Lord, remember this: by grace through faith in Jesus Christ you are united to our Risen Lord, a co-heir of God's glory right now and for all eternity. As we live in full dependency on His Spirit alone, we live and walk in the Kingdom of God today.
