Who we are!

Who we are!

 

        If you excepted Jesus with all of your heart then you are a child of God! You are His and, He is yours! You are a son or daughter of the Living God. He is the one that created everything that is and, everything that will be. He is the one that holds all of the particles of the earth that you are standing on right now together! You exist because He is holding every cell in your body together right now.

         Ephesians 2:19-22

Vs.19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and, foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

Vs.20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone;

Vs.21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

Vs.22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

 

         So you are a habitation for God to live in! Jesus made your vessel clean and, pure enough to live in by dying on the cross for all of your sins that you have committed and, will commit in the future. So now you are a new creature in Christ Jesus!

I Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

 

         Praise God! We are made new our body is a vessel that God can live in! Who are we? We are is Sons and, Daughters! He lives in us! I am writing this so that your eyes will be opened to understand who you really are, and what you really are! I also want you to know what you are capable of being and, doing!

Ephesians 1:17-23

Vs.17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him:

Vs.18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,

Vs.19 And what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power,

Vs.20 Which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places,

Vs.21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

Vs.22 And hath put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church,

Vs.23 Which is His body, the fulness of Him that filleth all in all.

 

         So we are Jesus' hands and feet on this earth! We are suppose to be living like Jesus lived while He was on the earth! There is one scripture that I just can't seem to get seem to grasp strong enough yet! It some times keeps me awake at night: why am I not living like this?

I John 4:17

Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgement: because as He is, so are we in this world!

 

         Every time I read that verse something stirs up within my heart! Did he say we will be like Jesus when we get to Heaven? No! He says in this scripture that we will be like Him now while we are on this earth! Wow!

         Ok so you might say well that was the Apostle John that was saying this that wasn't Jesus saying it! Then read what Jesus says in the Book of John 14:12-14

Vs.12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works thatn these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Vs.13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

Vs.14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

 

         Here Jesus says that we will do greater works than He did while He was on the earth! So why aren't we doing these greater works? We don't really believe the Word of God! If we really believe the impossible can happen every day for us! We have to believe. The revelation of this has to get beyond our heads and, into our hearts! Our eyes have to be opened to understand who we truly are!

Property Ownership!

I was just thinking this morning about a discussion that me and my wife had a few weeks ago. She was doing a word study on the word property. 

Do we really own anything? No! We really own nothing but our will! We don't even own our own bodies!

Everything belongs to God!

Colossians 1:16-17

For by Him were all things created, that are in Heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers; all things were created by Him, and for Him;

And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.

So why do we fight so desperately to hold on to anything?

We are really just caretakers of His vineyard! We are really quite miserable when we vainly attempt to think that we can own anything and, try to build our own kingdom which is like shifting sand that is here one day and, gone the next.

Let's surrender all too Him! It all belongs to Him any way! Besides it is all going to return to Him in the end!
