Topic: Hold Fast To Your Identity In Christ [Saturday October 28, 2017]
“But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;” – (2 Timothy 3:14 KJV)
So many believers go about with the mentality that they are cursed and so nothing works for them. It appears they have more faith in the activities of the devil than in what God is doing. Some are coming to church regularly and yet they are not growing and because of that the devil has made minced meat of them. The devil does not care how long you have been coming to church, how much you donate or how many Bible translations you have as long as you don’t know your identity. The devil came to Adam to make him doubt his identity. He said “has God said…?” In other words, do you really believe what God said? I thought that he would drop that trick but he still came to Jesus and said “if you are the Son of God…” In other words, he was asking Jesus if he really believes that He is the Son of God. This was just after God openly declared “This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased”
Child of God, are you doubting your identity in Christ? As a believer don’t you know that when you accept failure, what you are saying is that Jesus failed? Today the devil tells you when to go to bed and when to wake up, what to eat and what not to. If you hear some believers talk about Satan, from the way they magnify his activities you will think that God is hiding under the table. But the last time I read my Bible it says he that sits in the heavens shall laugh, because he knows that he is not in contention with the devil. The devil is already a defeated foe and whatever he is doing is just a waste of time. The devil is the one who is reacting to the things the Lord has already done. Your victory is already sure.
