The Tip of the Iceberg

19 Sep

As He is, as Christ is, so are we in this world (see 1 John 4:17). Notice the tense used. As Christ is, so are we. As Christ is, now, at this moment, glorified, seated at the right hand of the Father, having all things placed under His feet already and having received all power and authority, so are we, now, in the world, exactly like Him. He is perfectly righteous, perfectly holy, perfectly sanctified. We are thus also perfectly righteous, perfectly holy and perfectly sanctified in Him through the free gift of His righteousness that came by grace alone through his faith.

These are only a couple of the thoughts God is thinking about you, and they are the same thoughts you would do well to start thinking about regarding yourself. I guarantee you that God has more faith in you that you will rule and reign in this life by the power of His Spirit than you do. Why? Because He knows what He made us to be, and what we are capable of through faith. We are only discovering more and more every day, and this is only the tip of the iceberg.
