Undoubtedly, and with solemn conviction, I strongly acknowledge that Christ is a life-giving Spirit, and I'll be introducing you to what I mean by this timeless truth. So this article is just an introductory or prefatory actuality, which will come with great strength of successive parts of exposition that convey a clear and full proof, more than sufficient to assert that Christ is a life-giving Spirit. More below!

Reference: 1st Corinthians 15:45 New Living Translation (NLT) 'The Scriptures tell us, "The first man, Adam, became a living person." But the last Adam—that is, Christ—is a life-giving Spirit.'

The man, namely Adam, was just a living person. Looking at the expression for a minute, I'm not so sure whether you'll notice anything extraordinary about Adam, aside from being the first human created by God, according to the book of Genesis. So he was just a living person.

Genesis 2:7 (NIV) reads, "Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being." Adam became a living being as a result of God's breath. He was able to eat, respite, respond to stimuli, become sensitive to his environment, reproduce and grow. However, he was just a natural person who had limitations. In fact, death entered the world through him, and then spread rapidly to infect all people on the earth. This is revealed in Romans 5:12, which reads, "Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned" (NIV).

However, the perfect representation of Jesus Christ is that He is a life-giving Spirit, which denotes the source of life that exists forever. By concentrated attention and a steadfast gaze on the last Adam, who is the Christ (life-giving Spirit), anyone can have a noteworthy thought of eternity. The Bible says, "For if by the trespass of the one, death reigned through the one; so much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one, Jesus Christ. So then as through one trespass, all men were condemned; even so through one act of righteousness, all men were justified to life" (Romans 5:17-18 WEB).

Not only has Christ done this, but also in Him is eternal life, which is a life of immortality and ever-increasing glory. As a life-giving Spirit, He looked down the ages, and saw me and you, including all the unborn millions that would yet be drawn to Him in due time, and for this reason, He died on the Cross for all the sins of mankind, in order to deliver anyone who would believe in Him from the power of sin that leads to death.

While we were wasting away in sin, God revealed and demonstrated His unconditional love to us through the tangible display of Christ's atoning sacrifice on the Cross. As a result, His blood made us right with God through faith in His finished work. Now if you have received Christ Jesus as your Saviour and Lord, the Bible says, "So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to Him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death" (Romans 8:1-2 NLT). If you are yet to do so, kindly declare the prayer of salvation below, with sincerity of heart, and Christ will become your Lord from today and forever. Stay tuned for part 2. Shalom!

Scripture Reading - John 3:6-8; John 6:63; Romans 1:4; 1 Peter 3:18.

Guided Prayer: I acknowledge today that God demonstrated His unconditional love for me in this: While living without Christ, He sent Him ahead of time to die for me. Therefore I renounce the nature of sin and I accept Jesus as my Saviour. I believe and confess with all my heart that Jesus is the Son of the true living God, who died for me and was raised from the dead on the third day by God. I affirm that Jesus is risen and He's alive forever. I accept Him into my heart and I declare His Lordship over my life forever. I'm now born again as a new creation. I have eternal life: my present-moment reality. Thank you Lord Jesus for saving me and taking full charge of my life, as my Lord. GLORY TO GOD!
