Bible commentary

Discussion for Psalms 51:3

  • The Bible teaches us that all people are spiritually dead from the very moment of conception Psalm 51:3 . We naturally live out the lifestyle of a person dead in sin. This is the natural condition Jesus finds us in. When by faith we respond to His offer of salvation, at that very instant, we are birthed by God and become a new creation. He breathes into us His Spirit, placing His own life in us. The amazing power of the life of God that raised Jesus out of death enters into our human spirit and we partake of Christ s resurrection Life. Jesus becomes our Life. We now possess resurrection power for holy living. While many of God s people possess this resurrected Life, they are not enjoying it because they are unnecessarily still wrapped up in the grave clothes of the old life.
