There are 2 ways to live in this life. You can either live the High life or the low life. You can take the High road or you can take the low road. You can live above or live below. You can be an overcomer or one who is in subjection and overcame. You can live by the High Power or the low life weakness of this world.
The word says in Proverbs 15:24 that “The way of life winds upward for the wise that he may turn away from hell below.” To live for Jesus is to live a life that is above the hellishness of this earth. All throughout the Word there are references to 2 distinct ways of living; man’s way or God’s way. For “there is a way that seems right to a man but its end is the way of death “Proverbs 14:12. Many people today that name the name of Christ try to live in the middle. They don’t want to live the low life of sin but they don’t want to surrender their life totally to the Father to live a High Life of righteousness either. Jesus settled that dilemma long ago. In the book of Revelation Jesus had words for a lukewarm church named Laodicea. Now the Laodiceans thought they could walk the middle line. Jesus said, “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of my mouth.” They, and anyone who lives like them, will be up-chucked by the Savior himself. Thank God that, as a Christian, we do not have to live like that because “in the way of righteousness is life, and its pathway there is no death” Proverbs 12:28.
We have been given the Spirit of life, power, and grace. The same spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in all who have been born again. That means the same power, authority, and grace that Jesus had as the Son of Man we have as sons of God. We have been made alive, raised, and seated with Christ Ephesians 2:5&6. “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation: old things have passed away: behold, all things have become new” 2 Corinthians 5:17. It is high time to rule over sin, sickness, and Satan. It is our right and our responsibility to rule and reign over these things because we are both kings and priests unto our God and father Revelation 1:6. We have been given a higher life, wisdom, and nature because the greater one lives within us 1 John 4:4.
There is power, grace, and blessings promised to those who will choose to walk the road less traveled but only curse and desolation to those who walk along 2 paths. Make the choice today to take the highway to heaven in Christ and live in victory. It is available to all who will dare to believe His Word. So “press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” Philippians 3:14.
