That is why I told you that you will die in your sins, for unless you believe that I AM, you’ll die in your sins. John 8:24 ISV
Beloved, the “I AM” scriptures spoken by Jesus, have been the focus of preceeding devotionals. This statement is very pivotal in our understanding of who Christ is and what He really came to do for us. These sayings also shed more light on the full assurance we have in our Lord Jesus and they show us the extent of the love of God; that He sent Jesus (who is God Himself) to die for our sins.
When we believe and trust in our hearts that Jesus is truly our saviour and He is God, it changes us and causes us to do the supernatural. Peter was able to do the supernatural by walking on water, when he believed that Jesus was indeed God. Jesus came to open up a new way for us, which is the highway of holiness and righteousness. And this does not come from your own self effort but through His unmerited favour.
In 1 Corinthians 1:30, “but of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption”. Our Lord and saviour became all these for us.So the more you behold, believe and enthrone Christ as Saviour over your life, the more you see the manifestation of all He became for you. Stand fast by believing.
Prayer: Thank You Jesus; the Word that was God and became flesh. My life is kept in Your loving arms.
