#64 Alive to God

About Sovereign Love Series
There are two things we need to know and believe about God: His eternal power and His divine nature. Is God truly who He says He is: Sovereign Love?
Romans 6:10b-11 AMPC (emphasis mine)
…the life that He (Christ) lives, He is living to God [in unbroken fellowship with Him].
Even so consider yourselves also dead to sin and your relation to it broken, but alive to God [living in unbroken fellowship with Him] in Christ Jesus.
We believers are alive to God. The word alive means “existence as opposed to non-existence.”
This life-of-Christ we have received is so in God that we are always in Him and He in us. This is continuously real even if we are not living inside this glorious union. These verses declare that we are given, through Christ, an existence with God just as Jesus Himself lived. Unbroken fellowship!
To believe just this one passage of the Bible would revolutionize all of Christianity.
