Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new – 2 Corinthians 5:17
As a Christian, knowing who you are in Christ is so vital; it’s a prerequisite to having the right attitude towards the challenges you might face in life, and living above circumstances. There’re lots of Christians in the world who aren’t enjoying the blessings of Christianity, because they don’t know who they are in Christ; they don’t understand what Christianity is. They think Christianity is a nice religion; the best religion. That’s not true! Christianity is divinity at work in humanity; it’s the manifestation of God’s Kingdom through a human vessel. It’s not a religion.
Once you come to terms with this reality about Christianity, your life will take on a new meaning, and you’ll live joyfully every day, irrespective and independent of circumstances. Someone might say, “Well, you don’t know what terrible challenges I’ve been facing.” It’s not about what you’re going through; there’s the need to have a clear distinction between your state and your status.
The revelation of God’s Word that you have unveils your status, but that may not change your state or situation. So, the first thing you need to understand is what God says about you — your status — who you are in Christ! If you understand your status, then you can start exercising your authority, and superimposing the tenets and principles of that status on your situation, and there’ll be a change.
But some people want the situation changed first without understanding their status; your situation may not change but that doesn’t change your status. That’s why you can rejoice irrespective of where you are, and what you might be going through, because you know who you are. Once that’s clear to you, it doesn’t matter what the situation is; you’ll be victorious, because you’ve discovered who you are; invincible and full of power. Glory to God!
