Today’s post is just a brief exhortation: Don’t forget who you are. In fact, make sure you know who you are!
James 1:18 says, “By his own will he birthed us by the word of truth, so that we might be a sort of firstfruits of his creation.”
We Christians are part of a whole new creation. We are no longer primarily descendants of Adam. Whether Adam descended from Australopithecines or from dirt, all he provided us is the tent in which we, brand new creations and children of God, dwell. We’ll discard that tent some day, the sooner the better.
Until then, we possess a great treasure in an earthly storage bin. We are partakers of the divine nature, recipients of great and precious promises give by Almighty God himself.
“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called the children of God.”
Never expect the ordinary. God has his eye on you, and you are empowered by his grace to handle every situation. Turn your life over to him and live supernaturally; don’t let the world, the devil, or your brain lie to you and tell you that you are merely ordinary.
“I have heard of you, that the Spirit of God is in you and that light, understanding, and excellent wisdom is in you” (Dan. 5:14).
