we need to stop and marvel at what happened to us when we gave our lives to the
Lord and asked Jesus into our lives as Lord and Savior. Our inner man (our spirit,
conscience or spiritual heart) was recreated or born again (2 Cor 5:17; John
3:3-8; Ezek 11:19).
sins were forgiven: “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the
forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace” (Eph 1:7; KJV). We
were redeemed from the curse of the law, (poverty, sickness and death; Gal
3:13-14). We were sanctified (1 Cor 1:30) or set apart for God, justified or
made as if we had never sinned (Rom 3:23-24) and made the righteousness of God
in Christ Jesus (2 Cor 5:21). Righteousness means to be made in right standing
came to live in us as the Holy Spirit (Gal 2:20; 1 Cor 6:19). We became God’s
children (Rom 8:15), joint heirs with Jesus (Rom 8:17), and were taken out of
satan’s control and placed in God’s kingdom of light (Col 1:13-14).
bible tells us that the Holy Spirit in us is greater than any satanic force in
the world (1 John 4:4). “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth
me” (Phil 4:13; KJV). In fact, we are more than conquerors (Rom 8:37). Are you
getting the picture? We are family, Jesus our brother (Rom 8:29); we have the
same Father as Jesus. The same power (the Holy Spirit) that anointed Jesus for
ministry on this earth lives in us.
can do anything with Jesus. Let’s do it, let’s be salt and light, let’s turn
our world right side up.
