CHRIST, OUR NEW WORLD (9)

“For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:7-8.

LIGHT FOR NOW: No more sacrifice is required for you to walk in and manifest the glory of God.

It is unfortunate that some Christians still believe that they have to pay a certain price to get God’s approval or receive certain blessings from God. Some even believe that they have to pray and fast many days to receive a greater measure of the anointing. But that is not right. It does not work that way. Fasting is to bring your flesh under subjection to build your spirit man by studying the Word of God. If you are planning to pay a certain price or make a certain sacrifice for the anointing or anything for which Jesus already died to pay for, then you do not believe that what Jesus already paid was enough. No more sacrifice is required for you to walk in, and manifest the glory of God. God chose to bless Abraham. Abraham did not do anything to impress God first before God chose to make him great. God told him He will make him great even before he believed (Genesis 12:2) and his believing was accounted for righteousness.

In the New Testament, it’s about Christ and all that He has already done for us. It’s not about our works. The Bible says not of works, lest any man should boast (Ephesians 2:9). Colossians 1:2 (NIV) says, “Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light”. We could not qualify ourselves to become heirs of God and partakers of the divine nature. Neither your good works nor your self-righteousness was good enough to qualify you for the divine heritage you have in Christ. Therefore, there is no need striving or struggling to be good enough for God. Simply accept all that Jesus did for you. He paid the price for you to have, and enjoy all things that pertain to life and godliness. Therefore, live in His glory. You have no more sacrifices to make to qualify for God’s blessings. The sacrifice of Jesus is enough. Hallelujah! 

INSTRUCTION: Enjoy all that pertains to life and godliness. It has already been paid for.

PRAYER: Lord, I thank you for paying the price for me to enjoy all that pertains to life and godliness, in Jesus Name.

QUOTE: Jesus paid it all for you.
