Step Over The Dead Bodies

When the Apostle Paul said to the church in Corinth, “Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” (II Corinthians 5:17) he used a word to describe “new” that can be translated as “previously non-existent”. In other words, when a person is born again they are made so new they appear like an alien life form sent from another world who stepped foot on planet earth for the first time.

There are high levels of frustration between some believers because they continue to appeal to a dead nature to make righteous decisions. Dead things cannot change because the condition of death is static and unchanging. Only living things can change. This old nature is also deaf. It cannot hear the appeals of heaven.

Today, when you come into conflict with another believer choose to step over the lifeless carcass of their past and appeal to the new and previously non-existent person who now stands before you. This will require a higher level of faith on your behalf because the old nature is the most visible and the most annoying. Step over the dead body and speak with the vocabulary of heaven to the new creation. Then you will see the Lord do a miracle in your life and the lives of those who hear your words of hope.
