KEY SCRIPTURE: John 1:14 KJV “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth”.
Our key scripture announces that the word is incarnated and appears on the human scene. As a man, Jesus reveals His glory to all men as the only begotten Son of the Father full of grace and truth. In our previous study we learnt that, the Lord Jesus was the only begotten of the Father, yet we likewise were begotten by the Father as well. (John 1:13). We were born again by the word .1Pe 1:23 KJV “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” Jesus is the word of God, and we were also born again by the word of God.
Everything gives birth to its kind.
Every child of God is the word of God in the flesh.
As the Lord manifested His glory, we must also reveal the glory of the word that gave birth to us.
To maintain that life of manifesting the glory of the word we must fully acknowledge who we are. Unfortunately, many Christians see themselves as weak sinful human beings full of errors. This is one of the biggest lies of the devil. The scriptures which is God’s mirror reflects our true identity.
Who are we?
1.Amplified Bible, Classic Edition Ephesians 2:10″ For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]. Amazing! A pen is designed and have every ability to write on a piece of paper. You have been designed for good works or the glory of God. Believe it, say it and live it out.
2. Amplified Bible, Classic Edition 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 marvellous light.
We are a chosen race, God’s own special people, called to demonstrate the perfections of Him. We are no longer in darkness, but we are light.
Never again call yourself a weak helpless sinner.
You are a bundle of God’s priceless investment. Made very capable to reveal His glory
3. Amplified Bible, Classic Edition 2 Corinthians 5:21 “For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness].” Hallelujah!
There are many more glorious pictures about ourselves from the word of God. Each of us must take time to meditate on these verses so much that they become our very consciousness.
The glory of God is to demonstrate the love of God, the purity of God and the miraculous power of God in healing and blessing mankind. Every child of God possesses this ability in himself or herself
