Jesus says to you and me, ‘I want to share with you what I have achieved. I want to live in you. I want to share my risen life with you.’ How do we get it? We cannot buy it, cannot earn it, cannot work for it-no matter how hard we try. In fact the harder we try, the less likely we are of getting it, because the point is that it is a free gift! We can only accept it free! We can only receive it! We don’t get it by being good! We get it by grace, i.e. Jesus Christ living in us.
