Yesterday at our Georgia campuses, we started a new series called “Suit Up.” We will be talking about the Armor of God.
Yesterday I was in Ephesians, chapter 6, verse 10 -"Be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might."
Paul was reminding us of the power and provision we have in Christ! One of the main strategies of the devil is to keep you from understanding who you are in Christ.
We all have feelings of insecurity and inadequacy. We all fear rejection and we all want to be accepted.
I believe the number one problem that people has is not knowing who they are in Christ. Our understanding of identity impacts how we live out our lives. If you don’t establish a clear sense of personal identity in Christ, you are going to struggle throughout your entire life.
Why is it so important? Because we cannot consistently behave in ways that are different from what we believe about ourselves. If you don’t think right, you won’t believe right and you won’t behave right. If you think wrong, and believe wrong, you will act wrong.
The Bible tells us in John, chapter 8, verse 44 that Satan is a liar and the Father of all lies. He has been lying to you!
Read this, listen carefully…You haven’t had your identity stolen – you are in Christ! You are in bondage to the lies that the devil has told you that you believe about yourself.
Aren’t you tired of an unfulfilled and unproductive walk with Christ?
Remember who you are. Remember WHOSE you are! Quit believing the lies of the evil one.Get dressed - suit up. We win!
