Living according to who we are in Christ
Many think that losing salvation has to do with something we have to do or not do.
However as it is God who saves us,It is God who would have to unsave us.
What happens when we are Born Again,by Grace through faith,not of works ie,nothing we do in way of works or law keeping saves us or keeps us saved.It is all by grace.
We are Justified,as a judicial declaration of God upon believing in Christ olone,by grace through faith alone.
Just as Abraham believed God,God declared him righteous.So it is with us
We believe God and God declares us righteouse IN Christ.
We also have Christ in us,through the Holy Spirit in dwelling in us,which is the seal,that guarantees Eternal Life,that is everlasting.
Not temporary as those who say we can lose salvation it must be.
Not only are we declared justified and have the righteousness of Christ imputed to us.
But it’s even more than that.
We have been raised up IN Christ and are seated at the right hand of the Father in heavenly places.This truth is powerful for our walk as saved,Born Again people.For in Christ He has given us every thing that pertains to life and Godliness.
So even in our daily life,we walk according to our position of being Justified,having the righteousness of Christ and we are seated in Christ at the right hand of God.It is a position of power that we must appropriate daily in our walk.This is not a defeated,disfunctional position,but one that by which in the renewing our minds,with these truths,we can live in harmony with our brothers and sisters and with God.
Applying this to our walk,it is one of victory in which having done everything,we now stand.Even when we fail God,fall into sin as Paul says we fall into easily.It doesn’t mean we don’t fail,we don’t have trials and tribulations,but we have a place to appropriate in our time of need.
That is to walk boldly into the throne room of God.What does that mean?It means to appropriate our position of being already seated in Christ at the right hand of God.and from that position,when tempted,for our weapons are not carnal/of the flesh but powerful like two edged sword.able to divide bone from marrow,truth from error.
What will you do today?try and live your Christian walk in your own power or Walk in the power of the newness of Life,that is in Christ Jesus.?Lean not on your own understanding,but in the power that Christ has provided for us In Him and He in us.
Walk in the Spirit and we can’t commit the lust of the flesh.Walk according to the power that raised Christ up from the dead and seated Him at the right hand of the father and where we are also,positionally in Christ.It is that same power that bought us out of the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the light of Christ.Raised up from death into newness of Life.
Regardless of our walk,we are kept by the Power of God.That no matter,what we do,God cannot deny Himself who in us or us in Him.
