CHRIST, YOUR NEW WORLD (2)

“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the Sons of God,even to them that believe on his name” John1:12

LIGHT FOR NOW: God can only reach us through Christ.

The good thing in you in Christ is salvation. When you understand the subject of salvation, you command results in your daily Christian walk. This means that God wants every believer to be result-oriented (1 John 5:4). Salvation is a total package. God can only reach us through Christ. Jesus is the bridge that connects us with God. Romans 5:1 say, “Therefore, being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Christ”. Your identity is in your salvation. In salvation, you were redeemed a king and a priest (Revelation 5:10). The knowledge you have about the good thing that is in you determines the exploits you make in life here on earth. God expects us to make constant progress in our daily Christian walk. Salvation is through faith in Christ. Your growth in spiritual things begins when you have understanding of your salvation. Salvation is the subject and main matter of the scripture.

The subject matter of salvation is centred on the person of Jesus. Scripture gives evidence about our salvation in Christ (2 Timothy 3:16-17). The scriptures are the pointer to Christ. John 5:39 says, “You search the scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the scriptures point to me”. Every doctrine, teaching, belief and opinion on the subject of salvation must have their basis from the truth revealed in the scriptures. Believers in Christ are therefore not expected to live their lives on assumptions, feelings nor hearsay, but on the precise and accurate knowledge of Christ.

INSTRUCTION: Be conscious of who you are in Christ.

PRAYER: Lord, I am what the word says I am, in Jesus Name.

QUOTE: When the devil successfully kills your identity, he successfully kills your personality and the revelation of Him in your life.
