“And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life” (1 John 5:11-12).
There’s a life without limits; that’s the life Jesus brought to us; it’s the transcendent life of glory where there are no limitations. Many know nothing about this kind of life, and so they think it doesn’t exist. The fact that they don’t know about it doesn’t make it unreal; after all, there was a time people thought it was impossible to fly an air plane, but that has become commonplace today. The Word of God teaches of this life without limits, a life to which everyone who’s born again has been called. It’s a life unlimited by sickness, disease, failure, the devil or anything!
Jesus proved it was possible to live this triumphant life when He walked the earth. His life was extraordinary and unlimited by the circumstances of this world. The Bible tells us how He defied the laws of nature by walking on water (Matthew 14:25), and hushing the sea to sleep (Mark 4:39). Not even Satan, death, or the grave could limit Him. When He died, the Bible says through death, He paralysed him that has the power of death, that is, the devil (Hebrews 2:14). Thereafter, He rose triumphantly from the grave. This is the life to which you’ve been called where nothing can hinder or place limits on you. According to our opening scripture, you received this life when you were born again.
Now that you have this life in you, refuse to function according to your natural human abilities and take up God’s limitless power that’s been deposited in your spirit! The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 3:5, “Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God…” The word “sufficiency” is translated from the Greek, “hikanotes,” which means ability or competence. Thus, your ability to perform is of God; that means it’s unlimited. God gave you His ability so you won’t have to function with your own abilities but with His limitless and inexhaustible strength.
