8 comments on “Walking Among The Dead

  1. Jim:

    Love the dialog among the dead. I would suggest also as you talk about the spiritually dead, what if we entertain the thought the the text also references the physically dead. If we walk in the power and authority that Christ offered us and the disciples and walk out the instructions of;

    Matthew 10:7-8 7As you go, preach this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven is near.’ 8Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy,[b]drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.

    And the charge of John 14:12;

    12I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. 14You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

    I truly believe in walking among the spiritually dead but also the physical. I am ready to leak God’s presence on anyone he chooses I want to be obedient to go where he leads and pray where asks. I want the fruit to be evident because there are sign and wonders when the presence of God show up through me. I want to live out loud. Just thinking out loud and out of the box!

  2. Everyone wants to walk in His resurrection, but not so many want to die with Him first.

  3. Great Point Marlyn…I just blogged about that the other day. Are people TRULY willing to pay the cost that comes with the resurrection. Jesus paid the cost TWICE…

    Once–When he ascended from Heaven

    the SECOND time–when he died on the cross.

    And it was through those sacrificeS that His resurrection was possible.

    I don’t think people TRULY understand the cost of it all. I hear lots of times: I pay the cost with time, effort, energy, etc…and I don’t doubt that those are true sacrifices, I believe I make those as well. However, the extent of your ‘resurrection’ I believe corresponds directly with the price you are willing to pay.

  4. Is “Walking among the Dead” the same as being aliens in this world? When the realization comes that we are in this world of the dead, but alive only to Christ? When the emptiness of the things of this world is only replaced by dwelling on God’s Word and coming alive and breathing and being in Him? No wonder the men on the road to Emmaus (sp?) said their hearts burned within them while He walked and talked with them!

    Am really enjoying your thoughts, Jim.

  5. Marlyn,

    Actually, I think walking among the dead means living so differently that people are attracted to Christ through our lifestyle before they hear our words. For me, living as an alien in this world means I don’t hold tightly to anything here — friends, family, job, ministry, things, house, cars, etc. — because my everlasting home is in another place and in another dimension. Thanks for reading my blogs. It is good to know the little that I write is causing people to think, giving them hope, and in some small way, helping them grow closer to Christ and live the life He died for us to have.

    Blessings,

    Jim
