Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 16th October

One with Christ Jesus

Because I live, you shall live also. (John 14:19)

Jesus has made the life of believers in Him as certain as His own. As sure as the Head lives the members live also. If Jesus has not risen from the dead, then are we dead in our sins; but since He has risen, all believers are risen in Him. His death has put away our transgressions and loosed the bonds which held us under the death sentence. His resurrection proves our justification: we are absolved, and mercy says, “The Lord has put away your sin, you shall not die.”

Jesus has made the life of His people as eternal as His own. How can they die as long as He lives, seeing they are one with Him? When under great temptation, you fear that you shall one day fall by the hand of the enemy, let this reassure you. You shall never lose your spiritual life, for it is hid with Christ in God. You do not doubt the immortality of the Lord; therefore, do not think that He will let you die, since you are one with Him. The argument for your life is His life, and of that you can have no fear. Therefore rest in the living Lord.
