“But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. 13 They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God.” (John 1:12).
In our covenant relationship God has embraced us as His children. We have become heirs of God as joint heir with Christ. (Romans 8:17). To fully appreciate this privilege, we need God to give us a revelation of His glory.The Bible says in “For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.” (Romans 3:23)
In plain terms that translate as the standard requirement or measure that God uses for judging. The Greek translation of the word glory is “doxa”, meaning, ” every thing that God has and all that God is.” Well then, what is this glory? The book of Hebrews reveals that, ” …The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command.” (Hebrews 1:1-3).
This tells us that the Glory is Jesus Christ. He is the expression of God’s glory, All that God has, and all that God is, is represented in Jesus. The nature and the character of Jesus is the expression of God’s glory. Everything Jesus did on earth, was a manifestation of God’s glory in visible form.
The day you made Jesus the Lord of your life. You were created in Christ. You were born of God and you inherited the DNA of God. The glory of God is in you and Christ is the hope of manifesting the mysteries of that glory. “Christ in you the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27)
The Bible says 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come! (Amp).
What does it mean to be a New Creation? This is a supernatural miracle! God by His grace making a complete change of us, by making us a “new kind of being spiritually” It means God recreating our nature to act in accordance and agreement with God’s own divine nature. Thus, we can be a partaker of divine privileges by acting on God’s promises in the Bible. (2 Peter 1:4). This is pure grace!
“Even when we were dead (slain) by [our own] shortcomings and trespasses, He made us alive together in fellowship and in union with Christ; [He gave us the very life of Christ Himself, the same new life with which He quickened Him, for] it is by grace (His favor and mercy which you did not deserve) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation).” (Ephesians 2:5). Amp
The Lord has given us the new nature promised in Ezekiel under the old covenant, as Born Again believers in Jesus Christ we now have God’s DNA in us. The very glory of God lives in you! “…for God has poured out his love into our hearts by means of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 5:5). The LOVE of God, the very Nature of Christ is in us. And this is who we are. We are God’s children. As a son or daughter of God you can cry out to God as “Abba Father” and enjoy supernatural victory in impossible circumstances in your life!
Prayer Confession:Father thank you for saving me by your grace. Jesus wash my sins away with your precious blood. I give you my life. Jesus thank you for giving me a new heart and your righteousness. Lord Help to walk in obedience to your plan for my life. I take authority over every spirit of rebellion and disobedience in jesus name. I surrender all my past failures, disappointment and shame to the Lord. I have a new beginning and i have a glorious future ahead of me. Christ in me the hope of glory. The anointing for victory is on me and my family. I am blessed and highly favored by the Lord, this my testimony. In Jesus name. Amen.
Reflection: “So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” (Romans 8:15).
