Who you are in Christ

Galatians 1:1” Paul an apostle not sent from men nor through the agency of man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father.”

Introduction:

This epistle was written by  Paul and he minces no words when he boldly declares his calling: APOSTLE PAUL!  Wow, you need huge confidence of who you are in Christ to state your office and position in Christ.  Isn’t that awesome?  To whom this epistle is sent—to the churches of Galatia. There were several churches who got mixed with the evil and traditions around them, therefore we see Paul addressing this aspect with burden.

WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST: People don’t like it when you start walking in confidence with God-given authority and dignity, they start assaulting your character; Paul was unwavering in his stand with God.  Initially, in the year 2002 when I started circulating my devotions among my colleagues ( I was still working with a multinational bank then), people did not like my style of writing and they despised it.  They did not like direct confrontation from the word, some people left the group and others blocked me; however, God kept increasing my borders.  Even after two decades, I am still writing.  Don’t be afraid to walk in your calling, never be intimidated by your enemies, boldly declare your position in Christ. 

When you stay close with such fire-brands for Christ, their passion would rub off on you too.  Did not Paul say in,” Ephesians 5:8”For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light, 9for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth.”  I wish you feel the fire in me as write this….

DELIVER US FROM THE PRESENT EVIL AGE: Jesus gave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father.  Listen friend, we cannot call ourselves as Christians if we still cling on to the world and the evil in it. Every form of reality shows these days are very unhealthy for watching,  Cinema celebrities dominate the social media in almost all shows and all that they speak is of success, money and glamour.  Evil age! Are you listening friends?  Jesus came to rescue us from the power of it, yes, what started with Eve in the garden of Eden still continues today. Will continue to tomorrow…..
