When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Colossians 3:4
Understanding our identity in Christ is the key to living a victorious life here on earth. When a believer loses a sense of his identity in Christ, he lives like one who is defeated. When we are born again, we are dead to this world and its rudiments; we are alive with Christ Jesus, we no longer have a life of our own.
The old man dies with our past; we begin to live the new life, which is not ours but Christ’s. Most believers fail to understand that the life they now live, it’s someone else’s. But they continue trying to run this new life with their own logical minds, human strength and effort. Beloved, Christ is your life; the ability to live can only come from Christ.
Paul understood this; he said, “I’m not the one living the life that I have now, it’s Christ living out His life through me”(Galatians 2:20). Don’t try to help Christ, all you have to do is allow Him. When you walk in this consciousness, you will no longer struggle in your blessed christian life. *To be continued*
Prayer: Jesus, I stop struggling to live this life You gave to me, by my strength. I allow You take charge, live through me. Amen.
