Jesus Christ is not only alive, He is living! The life that Jesus Christ is living is much more than Christians routinely think about. We who are Christians would do well to reconsider His living because He is living IN us, if we can grasp such a thing! Col 1:27

With the Living Message – Acts 7:38

He is the Living God – Acts 14:15
We don’t talk much about idols in our current culture, but how many
of us have forgotten that Jesus Christ alone is God Almighty? How
many idols have we pursued, when the Living God is right here with
The Living Sacrifice – Rom 12:1
We don’t talk much about sacrifice either, almost like it’s only for

because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. And yet, He is a Living
Sacrifice, available to each of us, even now.
He is a life-giving Spirit – 1 Cor 15:45

The Living Stone – 1 Peter 2:4
How many of us have tripped up somehow in life? Stumbled? Banged
our head? Fallen down? The Lord God has put before us a Living
Stone, and the more we fight against this stone the more we hurt
ourselves and stumble. We would do much better to stand upon
Jesus Christ, obeying His Word, and allowing the Living Stone to
support us and protect us instead of tripping us!
He is the Living ONE – Revelation 1:18
There are many things in our lives demanding our attention, our
time, our resources, and our loyalty. How many of us get the
priorities out of order? Now is a good time to get back to what is
most important, to what will answer your questions, and to Whom
loves you so much. Why put it off? (Go ahead, try to answer that
question, and see what or whom you really serve.)
