What Is New Life in Christ?

What does it mean to have "new life in Christ"? According to Paul (Rom. 6.4) it is to be caught up in and to express the glory of God the Father. For many of us, I suspect, the notion of "the glory of God" is a fairly intellectual idea, one we readily affirm and wholeheartedly embrace. But the point is not merely to affirm and embrace this idea, but to live it. The glory of God His weighty, fearful, yet warm and welcoming presence, bending toward us and drawing us into Him as we recline in prayer and meditation before His eternal throne. The glory of God is something to engage through faithful discipline; from there, by the power of God's Spirit, the glory of God is something to express in even the most mundane aspects of our lives (1 Cor. 10.31).

Is there a weight of glory in our conversations? Our everyday demeanor? The way we look at others or come to their aid? When "new life in Christ" becomes more than merely a subjective spiritual sigh, the glory of God will begin to be a real presence in every aspect of our walk with Him.
