You are a brother or sister of Christ.
Are you ready to receive your position in the family?Have you ever tried out for a sports team? Have you anxiously waited for the coach to call out your name? God has been calling your name to join HIS family. Have you heard the call? Are you a brother or sister of Jesus Christ?
When you are born again and the Spirit of God enters into your life, you receive a new birth. This birth is through the blood of Jesus Christ. You are a brother or sister of Jesus Christ.
For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory. Romans 8:29-30
Take comfort in knowing that God knows you and HE chose you. HE chose you to be conformed into the likeness of HIS Son. This is a position of favor and blessing which is hard for you to receive because of your sin. Because you have heard the call for forgiveness and repentance of your sins, HE has forgiven you and cleansed you of ALL unrighteousness. You have been redeemed and justified into right standing with Jesus Christ. You have received the glory of God.
The enemy is like a roaring lion wanting you to believe lies about your circumstance in life. It is not that the circumstance did not happen. It is the lie associated with your circumstance. God uses the suffering, pain, hurt and problems of life to call you to HIM.
HE wants you crawling, humbled and broken of your self-righteousness. Your brokenness will allow you to receive HIS righteousness and enter into your position as a brother or sister of Jesus Christ.
Walk today in the humility of having been forgiven of your sin. Your sin debt has been paid. You are a brother or sister of Jesus Christ. You have been set free from fear and death. Walk today knowing you are being shaped into the likeness of Jesus Christ through your suffering, ridicule, pain, hardship and hurt. Forgive as HE has forgiven you.
