Identity Crisis: WHO IS A CHRISTIAN? – Part 3
Philippians 1:21 – For me, life finds all of its meaning in Christ
If you don’t know who you are, you will not be able to appropriate the victory that comes from your identity. The revelation of Christ and your identity in Christ confers on you the authority of Christ and the ability that you possess by the reason of Christ in you. Jesus operated and exercised his dominion from the position of His identity. John 6:38 .When you know where you come from, you will know who you are and what you can do. Your capability is a product of your identity. Jesus had a clear understanding of where he came from. He said I am the bread that came down from heaven, therefore he exemplified to us heaven on earth therefore if we originated from him, and we should equally live heaven on earth according to Gods original plan in the Garden of Eden.
So who then is a Christian? And who is not a Christian?
A Christian is not someone who has a Christian name
A Christian is not someone born into a Christian family or parents
A Christian is not someone who goes to church on Sundays
A Christian is not someone following the doctrine of Christianity
A Christian is someone who has knowledge of his origin as Christ
A Christian is someone who has been redeemed by the blood of the lamb
A Christian is someone who has confessed Christ as his Lord and saviour
A Christian is someone who has accepted the salvation offered by Christ
A Christian is someone in whom Christ dwells
A Christian is someone who is filled with the Hoy spirit that proceeded from Christ
A Christian is someone who walks in the authority and dominion of Christ
A Christian is someone who not only identifies with Christ but live as Christ on earth
A Christian is someone who understands his sonship in Christ Jesus
A Christian is Christ personified!
I pray that God will deliver into our hands the keys that will unlock every door as we begin to operate from the reality of our identity in Christ Jesus and we will begin to experience new things that come with our new identity in Jesus name.

Personal declaration for the day:
I am Christ personified. I am not ordinary, I am extra-ordinary.
