“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: Jesus is the revelation of God to man.
To walk in the newness of life is to walk in the true nature and character of God, because we are born of God. The Bible lets us to know that the singular identity and character of God is love. God is a Spirit and the Spirit of God is the spirit of love, because God is love. The Apostle John clearly explained the nature of God and how it should affect our walk in the new life having received the same nature when we received Christ Jesus as our Lord and Saviour. In 1John 4:7-13, he says, “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God towards us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world that we might live through Him. Herein is love, not that we love God but that he loved us, and sent his son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. Hereby know we that we dwell in him; and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit”.
As believers, our true nature is the nature which we acquired from God, which is love. Romans 5:5 say, “Because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us”. Without an accurate and precise knowledge of God, you cannot know your true nature and you cannot walk in your real identity. To know Christ is to know you. You cannot know yourself until you know Christ. Jesus is the revelation of God to man. When you know Christ, you get to discover yourself and live in your nature.
INSTRUCTION: Walk in your true identity and nature.
Prayer: Lord, I need revelation knowledge of you, in Jesus Name!
QUOTE: You cannot know yourself until you know Christ.
