Yesterday we started a brand new series at our Georgia campuses called “Come Home.” I spoke about how our choices and decisions are totally determined by our thinking and stinking thinking leads to a messed up life!
The prodigal son didn’t think right. He didn’t know who and what he had.
Most people don’t know who they are in Christ nor do they understand what it means to be a child of God. Many have believed the lie of the evil one and hold false beliefs about themselves.
Wrong thinking always leads to negative emotions which leads to making bad decisions. Those decisions began in your mind…your belief about yourself.
Let me remind you today what God says about you…
I am free from condemnation: Romans 8:1
I cannot be separated from the love of God: Romans 8:35
I am a citizen of heaven: Philippians 3:20
I am born of God and the evil one cannot touch me: I John 5:12
I have been chosen and appointed by God to bear fruit: John, 15:16
I am a temple of God: I Corinthians 3:16
I am seated with Christ in the heavenly realm: Ephesians 2:6
I am God’s workmanship: Ephesians 2:10
I can do all things through Christ: Philippians 4:13
I am saved, rescued, delivered, set free, cleansed, regenerated, and adopted into the family of God. I am justified, sins propitiated and expiated, redeemed, all guilt and penalty of sin is gone, I am reconciled to God, indwelt by the Holy Spirit, one of the elect, baptized into the body of Christ, a new man, accepted into the beloved, a chosen one, brought nigh to God, a heavenly citizen, on the rock, Christ Jesus has delivered me from the power of darkness, translated into the Kingdom of the Son, a member of the Holy and royal priesthood, a member of the family and household of God, in the fellowship of the saints, partaker of spiritual blessings in heavenly places and joint heir of Jesus! Wow…Believe that!
Anything contrary to that is stinking thinking!
