Know Who You Are by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Know Who You Are by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

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).

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 many who
aren’t enjoying the blessings of Christianity, because
they don’t know who they are in Christ; they don’t
understand who the Christian is. They think, for
example, that a Christian is a religious person; someone
who goes to church; no! He’s much more.

A Christian is someone in whom Christ dwells;
someone in whom, and through whom, the Kingdom of
God is manifested; a carrier of divinity. Once you come
to terms with this reality, your life will take on a new
meaning, and you’ll live joyfully every day, irrespective
and independent of circumstances. This is why it’s so
important that you understand God’s Word, what He
says about you, and then live accordingly.

The Bible says Jesus wasn’t only delivered to
death on account of your sins, He was also raised for
your justification (Romans 4:25). What does it mean
to be justified? It means to be declared “not guilty”;
meaning that in the mind of justice, in the eyes of God,
you never sinned; therefore, no charges against you.

Now you can further appreciate why the Bible
says you’re holy, unblameable and unreproveable in
the sight of God (Colossians 1:22). It’s because the Christian is a new creature: “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).

You’re a brand new species of being that never
existed before; that’s why God can declare you
acquitted, because there’s nothing to judge since you
have a brand new life.

Your justification isn’t because Jesus “paid” for
your sins; He did that for the whole world of sinners,
but the Christian isn’t a sinner; he’s a new creation; a
product, not of the death and burial of Jesus Christ, but
of His resurrection! You came from the resurrection.

You’re the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus,
graced to reign and exercise dominion over Satan and
circumstances. Hallelujah!

 CONFESSION
I walk in the light of my justification. My life is an
expression of God’s righteousness; I’m the seed of
Abraham; therefore, I live above lack, sickness,
disease and defeat! I’m victorious all the way, serving
the Lord joyously and gloriously, in Jesus’ Name.
Amen!
