Identify with JesusMonday, January 16, 2017
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
"Cancer runs in my family, I'm bound to get it."
"Weight gain just seems to be in my genes."
"He's just naturally smarter than I am."
Have you ever heard anyone say anything like that? Who are they identifying with?
Who do YOU identify with?
As Christians we should be identifying ourselves with JESUS. The King of Kings and Lord of Lords! We were created in HIS image, with PERFECT GENES.
1 John 4:17 tells us, "Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world."
Jesus is perfect, we are perfect.
Jesus is righteous, we are righteous.
Jesus is healed, we are healed.
Jesus is strong, we are strong.
How do we receive it? By faith!
Romans 4:16 tells us, "Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham's offspring--not only to those who are of the law but also to those who have the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all."
We are not victims. We are overcomers! Greater is He that is in us than He that is in the world!
Take your eyes off of self, and look at Jesus IN YOU.
Through Christ you are STRONG, HEALTHY, and RIGHTEOUS, made in the image of GOD. You can do ALL THINGS through Christ (IN YOU) who strengthens YOU.
Today, identify yourself with Jesus.
