Good morning, I cannot get my mind off of this ONE thought this morning; that of, confessing my/our Faith.
As a believer, let’s look in our own inner consciousness, what we really are in Christ; what it really means to have Jesus as the Lord of our life.
We come to the realization of the greatest miracle in our life, that of the saving knowledge of God’s miracle working power within us; working in us, sanctifying us, changing us from day to day, CHRIST IN US, the hope of glory.
It’s about time, we begin to realize whose we are and who we are in Christ. In the next few scriptures we will see just how much God loved us and we can become partakers of His Sonship because we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, yes, Christ in us.
WE MUST PUT our faith in Christ Jesus as stated in these scriptures:
- John 1:12 But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children (Greek- sons) of God.
- John 11:52 It was a prediction that Jesus’ death would be not for Israel only, but for the gathering together of all the children of God scattered around the world.
- Galatians 3:26 So you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
- 1 John 5:19 We know that we are children (Greek-sons) of God and that the world around us is under the power and control of the evil one.
Today, let’s take hold of the very fact, that we are part of His righteousness, not as “a mere man” but begin to take advantage of the Divine Nature of the most Holy God. We have become the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus. God says to study to show thyself/myself approved to God.
May I suggest to begin living the Word, practicing the Word, confessing that we are what the Word says we are. The Word says “I am redeemed”… “In whom I have my Redemption”.
We must be a separate people, NOT living like those around us: We go to the same places. Listen to their stories and talk.
We go to church, and when they preach a real-searching message and give an altar call, we usually go to the altar.
We cry a little and feel mighty sorry that we haven’t done any better, but go out and go back into our old life.
And yes, we know that we have been given Eternal Life, for we remember way back one night, when God gave us Salvation through our faith in Christ Jesus and for a while we’ve tasted a part of heaven, you might say…even had a wonderful victorious life and led several people to Christ.
But there is one thing I must say. Satan will come along and try to steal your joy and even your salvation if you do not stay in Christ. For as the scripture states, “In Him we live, move and have our being”.
As always, love in Christ Jesus,
