KEY SCRIPTURE: John 14:6 ” Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”.
I have come to discover many Christians do not understand the fact that Christ is their life. (Colossians 3:4a “When Christ, who is our life, shall appear …”)
Christ is the life of the Christian. (Galatians 2:20). This means the Christian is a supernatural person. You are not this body. The real you lives inside the body .2nd (Corinth 5:1-8). The inner man or the real you is also Christ in you (Colossians 1:27)
When we say ‘ I’, as a Christian, we should mean the man or woman who is strong and Satan cannot easily manipulate. You are referring to the man, woman or boy who overcomes diseases and all that Satan throws at him or her. . I pray you discover who you are. I hear people sing songs like “I am weak but thou at strong”. If you sing this as a baby Christian there is no problem. But the matured Christian who sings such songs become a potential prey for the enemy. Somebody may say we are admitting we are weak so we can receive of His strength. This is where Satan takes advantage of you. 1st Corinthians 6:17 says “But he that’s joined to the Lord is one spirit”. Please just consider this, if you are one spirit with Him, what made you weak.
Dear child of God you have become who you are in Christ by grace. (Romans 5:17). Listen to the advice the Holy Spirit gave to Timothy in 2nd Timothy 2:1. “Thou therefore my son be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus”. Please answer me, what does it mean to be strong in something? It means to take full advantage or use of it. Grace has made us one with Him and therefore as He is so are we. (1st John 4:17). Why do you keep confessing weakness? Let the weak say I am strong. (Joel 3:10)
Dear child of God your calling to be a Christian is to reveal Christ through you.(Gal 1:16). He is our life.
Thank you Jesus that you gave me your life, so that I may be free from my old self of weakness, and sickness and partake of your divine nature.
Thank you Lord. Amen.
