From Religion To Reality
“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
2 Corinthians 5:21 (NKJV)
When we were born again, we were not half-reborn, we were not made half righteous or a quarter righteous. We were made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus!
We were made ‘joint-heirs’ with Him! According to Strong’s Concordance that word joint-heir’s refers to a personal equality based on an equality of possession. Jesus went to the Cross to give us what He already possessed. He rose again so we could be recreated in His image.
We are everything to the Father that Jesus is! In John 17:23 Jesus said, “I in them, and You in Me, that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.” God loves us as much as He loves Jesus!
As His people, we are everything to God that Jesus is, can we really begin to comprehend this? If we do believe it and dare to put it into action, it will radically alter our lives. It will take us from religion to reality!
Father, please help us to begin to comprehend that You love us as much as You love Jesus.
