KEY SCRIPTURE :1 Peter 2:9. [“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous LIGHT” .
Many Christians unfortunately do not understand the life or faith they find themselves. To many, Christianity is trying to do the instructions of the Bible. This is the big error many people find themselves. Trying to do the instructions of the Bible makes Christianity a religion, but Christianity is not a religion. We are not called to try to please God so we would be acceptable to him. (It is not a life of human effort) We would be answering these questions in these studies.
Christianity is Christ living through a man. It is the life in which the victories of Jesus over Satan is demonstrated through men by the ability of the Spirit. Christianity is not about you or me, but is basically about Christ in us showing forth His victory through us. What then is our role? Our role is to trust the Lord to express Himself through us. Christianity is a beautiful life of glory. It is a life of rest in faith, allowing the risen Christ do exploits through us to manifest His glory. Suffering persecutions for Jesus is also a way of demonstrating His victory over Satan. It is called light afflictions. (2nd Corinth 4:17)
Just consider our key scripture from the amplified Bible again. 1 Peter 2:9(Please read it above). These things cannot be done by any man’s effort or ability. It can be achieved by the spirit at work in you. We live by acknowledging Jesus victory as ours. We must also believe and know that; the Lord Jesus is presently at home in us to fulfill His purposes in us. Our victory in life is a done deal. As you intensify your fellowship with the Spirit, you demonstrate victory over sin, sicknesses, poverty and you do exploits by setting men free from satanic bondage.
I am born again by the Spirit of the Lord, and it is the spirit who expresses Himself through me. He shows forth the victories of the Lord in us.
Romans 6:4 KJV” Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life”.
Hebrews 2:14 KJV'” Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil”;
