In Christ ( What We Are)

In Christ: What we Are and Have in Him

 tn_2061_s[1] CG68 2148_s[1] 015a_th Apples on Tree pot of Gold 4

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 God’s traits and live to please God, rather than ourselves.  It also means we can pray to God and address Him as ‘Our Father’ 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.[/b][/size]. These are truths and glorious privileges religious people do not have and cannot enjoy.

 If you are keen on memorising the scriptures, this alphabetically ordered truths with also be an aid to you and will enable you to memorise and recall the scriptures easily as you test yourself and ask a scripture memorisation partner to test you. So doing you will grow in grace and be established and make progress and your progress will be indisputable.

What more? God will speak to you from the scriptures you have memorised and you will grow in hearing His voice in your journey of life.
