ALIVE IN CHRIST (2)

“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” – 1John 4:4

LIGHT FOR NOW: You cannot be God-inside- conscious and not be a victor on every aspects of your life.

If we are new creation-conscious; conscious of the fact that we have the nature and life of the father in us, as we are of the things of the senses, then we would walk in the realm of unending victory. You cannot be God-inside-conscious and not be a victor on every count. You must allow truths such as our theme text become a reality to you. These truths that reveal your present status in Christ must soak into your spirit consciousness for you to start enjoying the reality of your salvation. That is when you can boldly say over and over again, I am born of God; I am born from above; I am a master of everything connected with the old creation. Satan has no dominion over the new creation; hence he has no power over me. You should be aware of the fact that the old man with its weaknesses, failings, doubts, fears and sense of servitude to circumstances is all gone; and the new man in Christ is now a master where the other was a slave. You see, the reason most believers are not living in this realm of victory is their lack of accurate knowledge of the word of God; and the fact of this lack of knowledge actually goes beyond what we believe into who we are and the kind of life we live as believers. When Jesus was on earth, He was really the righteousness of God unveiled; He had no sense of sin or inferiority. He was master over demons, disease and sickness. And when we came into Him at salvation, He became our righteousness, thereby making us the righteousness of God in Him by identification. Therefore, if we are taught about our righteousness and freedom in Christ; if we know that we are masters over demons in the name of Jesus, if we know that we have authority over the enemy; if we know that we could stand in the presence of the Father just as freely as Jesus, with no sense of inferiority, no sense of unworthiness; if we realize that we are the sons of God. We would be living always in total victory. Having accurate, precise and comprehensive knowledge of our in- Christ status will liberate us from the bondage of religion to growth in the word, evidenced in our daily faith walk as believers. It is a fact that at salvation, we came alive in Christ but to live in the reality of this life, we must be fully equipped with all available knowledge about this new life as contained in the word of God.

You are the first and the best of all that God created; you are topmost and first class; God didn’t create you to be subject to the devil, sickness, disease, infirmities, pain and depravity. God created you superior to Satan! So it makes no difference if this hasn’t been your experience, the word of God and the victory Christ won for us holds true; and the mindset is the only ticket to winning out the Christ life.

INSTRUCTION: You have to know that God lives right inside of you.

PRAYER: I affirm that I have the Christ-life in me, a life of glory, dominion and excellence; free from sickness, disease and infirmities. Nothing hurts or frightens me-Glory

QUOTE: You are the first and best of all that God created.
