Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PhD Saturday, 14th October 2023 MORE THAN HUMAN


_And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life: he who does not have the Son of God does not have life_ *(1 John 5:11-12 NKJV)* 

Christ in you means eternal life in you. Eternal life is the life and nature of God: the God-life. Notice the tenses in our theme scripture; it says God *“has given us eternal life.”* It’s not a promise. He’s not *“going”* to give us eternal life. You have that life NOW. As a result, John says in the 13th verse, *“I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life”* (1 John 5:13 NIV).

He wants you to know that you’re more than human. Your human life has been supplanted by the life and nature of God. This divine life in you has made fellowship and oneness with God possible. You’re by no means an ordinary person. Recall the words of the psalmist in Psalm 82:6, *“I have said, Ye are gods, and all of you are children of the most High.”*

The same truth is referenced and reiterated by the Lord Jesus in John 10:35 when He said, *“If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken.”* We are gods, because God gave birth to us. We’re the offspring of the Word: *“Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever”* (1 Peter 1:23). 1 John 4:17 says, *“... as He is, so are we in this world.”*


_Christ lives in me! I’m the expression of His reality, His grace, glory, kingdom, power and personality! I’m the expression of His fullness; He is my completeness. It makes no difference what challenges I face in life; there’s a force—an empowerment—at work in me to blaze through the barriers. Everything and anything l could ever need is inside the greater One that lives in me. Glory to God!_


*1 Corinthians 3:16* Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 

*Colossians 1:26-27* [Even] the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: *27* To whom God would make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:  

*1 John 4:4* Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
