KNOW WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST
If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; be hold, all things have become new.
For we are God’s masterpiece, He has created us anew in Christ Jesus so that we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.
For once we were dead, doomed forever because of our many sins. We used to live just like the rest of the world, full of sin. We let satan take control of us, the mighty prince of the power of the air. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who live by the flesh. All of us used to live this way, following the passions and desires of our evil nature. We were born with an evil nature.
However, as a believer you and I are no longer caught in satan’s bondage. We were set free by Jesus Christ when we asked Him to come and live within us. By Jesus living in us, we have the power to cast down strongholds over our lives, cast out demons, to love our brother as we do ourselves. We having self-control, having peace in our lives only when you understand that we are in Christ and He is in us.
He Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree (cross); that we having died to sin might live for righteousness – by His stripes we were healed. For we were like sheep going astray, but having now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of our sins, He has set us free.
The Holy Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and by children, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ Jesus. We have the right to call God our Father.
Like in the spirit, so is it in the natural. All that our Father gave to Jesus, He gives to us (John 14:12).
Take that power and use it in name of Jesus Christ.
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life, which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loves me and gave Himself for me. “I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain” (Galatians 2:20-21).
God Bless you
