“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new – 2 Corinthians 5:17
LIGHT FOR NOW: Until you know who you are, you cannot walk in your true identity and nature.
A believer in Christ is a new man created in Christ, different from the old man that was born after the image of his parents. John 3:6 says, “that which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit”. To be born of the Spirit of God is to be born of God’s image and likeness, which includes his nature and character. This is why the true understanding of who you are in Christ is dependent on your accurate knowledge of who the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ is. This is very important and fundamental because until you know who you are, you cannot walk in your true identity and nature. And to know you, you must know Him, in whose image and likeness you were made, because as he is, so are we in this world (1John 4:17; 3:2). Apostle Peter never knew who he was and the destiny he carried until he knew who Jesus is (Matthew 16:15-19).
As a believer in Christ, if you do not know who you are, the stuff that you are made off, you will not be able to live your life naturally. You will be living outside your nature which is living a fake life. You are born of the incorruptible word of God. “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of the incorruptible, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth forever” (1 Peter 1:23). This is to say that you are born of God, because the word of God is God Himself. You are a product of faith in God’s word through the hearing of the gospel (Romans 10:17). You must never forget what you are made of. When you realize that the Word of God is your nature, you will not struggle to do the Word. You will do the Word naturally. This is because the word of God has the inherent power to manifest supernaturally. Therefore, you must be conscious of the truth that you are the mirror of God’s word. If the Word of God cannot fall to the ground void, then your words have no right to fail.
INSTRUCTION: Always be conscious of who you are in Christ.
Prayer: I am born of the Word. I do not struggle to do the Word; I do the Word naturally because I am a product of the Word, in Jesus Name!
QUOTE: You are a product of God’s Word.
