Who We Are In Christ

Wanting to live a life that is blessed? First you must know who you are in Christ. When Jesus died on the cross his blood cleansed us from the power and curse of sin, sickness, poverty and eternal death. The Holy Spirit lives in you and you become a new creature filled with gifts and power over Satan. If you don't know what you are entitled to how can you use it? If someone opens up a bank account in your name for $10,000 and you never learn about it is the $10,000 working for you? No, because you never knew you had it. Make sense? I like things simply put. Please join me in speaking these things aloud each and every day. Print them out and carry them with you. Soon you will be able to speak these about yourself as you go through the day and be fully confident of who you are as a Christian in Christ Jesus and all that is available to you. Keep His praises on your lips, for out of the heart the mouth speaks. Your mouth is the rudder of your ship, your body. Take your body to the good places that God has prepared for you.
