The Signature of Jesus

The Signature of Jesus

There is one spirituality in the Church of the Lord Jesus: paschal spirituality (of or relating to Easter). Essentially it is our daily death to sin, selfishness, dishonesty, and degraded love in order to rise to newness of life. Paul says, “It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me” (Galatians 2:20 NASB). Each time we. . .choose to walk the extra mile, to turn the other cheek, to embrace and not reject, to be compassionate and not competitive, to kiss and not to bite, to forgive and not massage the latest bruise to our wounded ego, we are breaking through from death to life.
