Five Minute Friday : ALIVE

Five Minute Friday : ALIVE

Five Minute Friday : ALIVE

Today I’m writing along with many bloggers at Five Minute Friday on the topic ALIVE.


Because Christ forgave my sins, I am ALIVE, alive in Christ (Colossians 2:13) What does being alive mean to me? It means, I am free from the guilt of sin. There is therefore, now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1) I am also free from the grips of sin leading to eternal death. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23) Sin sure lurks around, but being ALIVE in Christ, reminds me that I am His workmanship (Ephesians 2:10) and that I am no longer a slave to sin, I am a new creation, I can overcome sin by the power of Christ! (2 Corinthians 5:17)

The other side of being alive, physically, means that you still have a chance to be made truly ALIVE. It is not too late, to make that decision, to turn to the Cross! Look at the Savior, lowly and humble, on the cross, bearing your sin and mine. He suffered for your sake. Won’t you believe in your heart that He did this for you, while it’s not too late? While you are still ALIVE?

I enjoy learning from God’s word, it amazes me, the wisdom and treasures of God and the way He reveals them to me day after day in a profound manner. In this space I share with you what I’ve learnt through my time with the Word. I earnestly believe that learning alone isn’t sufficient but walking in the word is crucial in a believer’s life. As much as I desire to walk in the word, it’s not always easy. My hope is to encourage you, my dear friend, in your walk with God with words that He has used to strengthen my own walk with Him.
