Because of Adams sin man became estranged from God, separated from the Father and life itself. All who are in Christ are no longer dead (separated from God), now through their union with Christ they are alive, reunited with the Father. We are one spirit with Him, filled with the Zoe life of God, the God-kind of life. That life that is now in us is the very nature of God Himself. We have been given this new life within so we can live a new life outwardly. One of the keys to doing so is found in Ephesians 5:1 which tells us to imitate God in everything we do because we are now His children. You do so by choosing daily to think like God, talk like God, and act like God. Start making a conscious effort to do so every day. If you do, this new life within you will begin to manifest through you changing your life and the life of others as well.
