In Christ or In Him: What we Are and what we Have (Part 1)

Post  fennywest on Fri 01 Jun 2012, 6:25 pm





Paul, who considered himself a chief sinner, the man who persecuted the Church heavily, wreaking havoc and arrested by the Lord when he was on the road to Damascus, armed with warrants to do damage to Christians and turned around for good, heard and had incredible revelations of who we are and what we have in Christ.
These truths, known and embraced and run the Christian race with, will take you and I to places we can dream of without knowing them. Let us meditate on these truths and mediate on them until their reality is formed in us as Christ is formed in us and the word is made flesh in our lives.
Search the scriptures with the references and ponder about the implication of each truth.
For instance we are children of God. This means were not His children before our new birth. We belonged to Satan and had the nature of Satan and lived to please Satan and ourselves. But now God is our Father and Jesus is our Lord and Saviour. The Holy Spirit indwells us. We are meant to have Godís traits and live to please God rather than ourselves. It also mean we can prayer to God and address Him as ĎOur Fatherí It also means as our Father He will supply our needs and nurture us as His children. He will correct us or rebuke or discipline us because He loves us.
