YOU ARE IN CHRIST

“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: The believer lives in an environment called Christ.

Being born again makes everything new about you and for the believer to live up to God’s expectation, he must be taught to intently look into the word of God to have a clear view of himself. The fact is that everything about the believer is of God as the Bible says, “And all things are of God who had reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ…” (2 Corinthians 5:18). The believer lives in a new environment called “Christ”. Christ is a person, and is also a place. Our opening verse says, “…if any man be in Christ…” that’s the environment, and in that environment, we see and live differently; we’re alive to God and to the realities of the Kingdom. In that environment, we live and prevail by faith; we see with the eyes of the Spirit. In Christ, you were born into a different environment; and when that happened, things changed. You have to live differently as the principles are different. That is why I can boldly say that there are no more limits on your way; if you find anything that’s not of God in your life – something that hurts and binds, it is your place to rebuke it and it will be gone.

           At salvation, the Spirit of God took abode in you.  The Spirit in you is a burden remover and a yoke destroyer “And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder; and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing”(Isaiah 10:27).  The believer is filled with the fullness of God, lavishly loaded with all power, glory and grace of divinity! He is strengthened with might by the Spirit in the inner man. And Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to THE POWER that WORKETH IN US”. All of God is now in you, not on a temporal basis but on a permanent basis. You now belong in God’s superior class of divine being and should look beyond the natural realm of existence to your heavenly blessings and provisions in Christ Jesus. God, by His Spirit cannot be in you and any man or thing successfully opposes you. That anointing in you is what changes everything in your life. It guides you, leads you and destroys every limitation such that you’re able to face life with giant killer mentally and the effect of this anointing is in the consciousness so expressed.

INSTRUCTION: You are made righteous. Think on this truth.

PRAYER: I affirm that in Christ, I have been made the righteousness of God – Glory

QUOTE: Righteousness is not from man; it is a gift from God.
