Gathering in Christ

1 Corinthians 15:45
And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

Jesus Christ came into the human race from the outside, and when we are born again, His life comes into us from the outside… We try to enter the life of Jesus in the wrong way. We do not enter into His life by imitation; we enter into it by its entering into us by means of His death. 

Jesus Christ gives us His life, namely, Holy Spirit. When we ask God for the Holy Spirit, we receive the very nature of God, Holy Spirit….The danger is lest we praise God’s salvation and sovereign grace whole we refuse to manifest His salvation in our human nature.
