It’s my greatest joy that we all come into the understanding of our life in Christ. We will not live in victory if we are still ignorant of our place in Christ.
We are more than one that conquers a battle. We are more advantageous than one that fought for victory. Christ conquered for us and won all the victories. Ours is to enjoy the benefits of these victories by riding upon the finished works of Christ.
God has not called us unto a hope that is temporal. No. We have an eternal hope in Christ and this hope is the hope of glory. We must therefore position ourselves rightly in Him.
See what God says concerning you.
1. He has blessed you with Grace and peace.
2. He has blessed you with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.
3. He has chosen you in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love.
4. He has predestinated you unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will.
5. He has made you accepted in the beloved.
6. He has given you redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.
7. He has abounded toward you in all wisdom and prudence.
8. He has made known unto you the mystery of his will, according to His good pleasure which he has purposed in himself.
9. In the dispensation of the fulness of times he would gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him.
10. You have also obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who works all things after the counsel of his own will.
11. He has ordained you to be the praise of His glory, who first trusted in Christ.
12. And because you trusted Him after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation and you also believed, He sealed you with the Holy Spirit of promise.
Yes, if you know who you are in Christ Jesus, you will live very differently. God loves you and delights in you. Live a life full of justification. You are blessed.
