Love, Light & Life

... more than a devotional



...since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, Colossians‬ ‭3:9‭-‬10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Yesterday, we looked at the inheritance we received in Christ Jesus, this inheritance refer to all things that concern life and godliness, which we receive when we come into Christ. 2 Peter 1:3, shows us that this inheritance was given to us by the power of God, but through the knowledge of God. 

What does this construction mean? It means God's power has brought the inheritance into our Spirit, but if we will see our inheritance expressively in our lives, then we must go for, and live by the knowledge of God. The reason people have lived the way they live, in sickness, fear, sin, uncertainties is because they have lived by the knowledge of men.

Consider our theme verse. We are a new creation. The being who we are now in Christ Jesus, is renewed (I.e brought to light) through the knowledge of God, according to the person of Christ who created Him. There's so much in your spirit. But by what knowledge do you live your life?

Is it by the things you learnt in school, or the things you learnt while growing up? Or have you bothered to go into the scriptures and find out the truth of life according to God to apply them in your own life? Don't be born again and continue an ordinary human life. You are called for more. Believe this, and act on it.

Affirmation: I believe I'm called for more. The inheritance made available in Christ already resides in my spirit. As I study the Word of God, and practice it personally, I see the results, the manifestation of God's life in me, in Jesus name. Amen.
