"It is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure." Philippians 2:13 God does not see us in ourselves - He sees us in Christ. He does not see us, He sees Christ in us. If we really believed that, we would be delivered from ourselves and would indeed be triumphant Christians. WE ARE NOT DEFINED BY OUR PAST We must develop the mind-set that -- we are not defined by our past, what people think of us, or our circumstances - but only by who we are in Christ. We step into our future (God's CALLING on our lives) with great boldness and confidence knowing certain that Christ has paid the price for complete freedom. "To whom God would make known what is the riches of glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory." - Colossians 1:27 UNDERSTANDING OUR INHERITANCE IN CHRIST IS VITAL We know who we are in Christ without doubt or fear. We are sons and daughters of God by His marvelous grace. We have the Blood of Jesus flowing through us. By His blood we overcome the darkness of this world. We are all anointed for the DISCIPLESHIP of new believers as we follow the Spirit's leading. Too many in the Church have limited themselves and limited God by not understanding their inheritance in Christ and their right standing with God. By praying the scriptures in the epistles of Paul that pertain to our inheritance in Christ we come to know who we are in Christ; the power that is flowing through us and our authority over sickness, distractions, or other issues of life. Our body is the temple of God and we have the right to take authority over every area of it – spirit, soul, and body. HIS POWER IS PERFECTED IN WEAKNESS Christ in us is our hope of glory. When we are weak, He is strong. As 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 says: "And He has said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.' Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong." ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY
