Our life in Christ is wonderful in that it is miraculous, and it is full-of-wonder (wonderful!)
...God Orders our life in a way that we never imagined. Before Christ we never could have dreamed what He had in store for us.
...Wonder = Miracle... Our life is marked by miracles
Our wonderful life starts at the foot of the cross. Comes with a revelation of the truth of who Jesus is & the truth of the gospel. That is shared primarily through preaching and the testimony of His people. (spoken and lived out)
Our life begins with a death (Jesus death, and our death), and we were raised in the newness of life. The life that we now live we live by the faith of the Son of God who loved us and gave Himself for us.
Newness of Life = Zoe = Eternal Life: The life of God given to us when we believe in Jesus. (This life was the light of men).
Ephesians 2:4-6 – But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive
