”Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours; And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God`s.” 1CORINTHIANS 3:21-23.
Understanding is always needed in your race of life in order to stay strong and in order to continue to be victorious. God’s word reveals to us here that all things belong to us through Christ. Every redeemed child of God has an enviable heritage in Him, possessions of great value.
Unfortunately, however, many are ignorant of this truth. They allow the devil to deceive them as if we were just unworthy people on earth. He died for us because we are worthy, He made us worthy and created us in His image. He gave His life for us because He loves us and we are called sons and daughters of God, we are precious to Him. “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not.” 1 John 3:1
As sons and daughters of God, He has given us right over everything. He has created us to have dominion over them; therefore all things are yours and mine. ”And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Genesis 1:28
We are partakers of His divine nature through redemption by His promise. ”Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” 2 Peter 1:4
Every child of God has authority over everything God created and they belong to us, if we know how to access them.
Apostle Paul said it is we who are going to judge even the angels and the whole world. ”Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?” 1Corinthians 6:2-3.
But if you are ignorant of your position in Christ, who you are and what you have, you may live as a slave forever. You need to start to posses your possession from now on and understand that all things are yours by redemption.
In Life Kingdom Church this month, God is unveiling to us the understanding of our worth in Christ and what we carry.
God bless you
