Remembering Who You Are In Christ

23 Jan

There been times when I been walking through the airport or some public place and I can not help but notice people who are just flat out frustrated with some situation going on in their life. For example they missed their flight, or some other issues are going on with them. They are so visibly upset and they are not bothered by anyone knowing this. So they start taking out their frustrations on some innocent worker behind a desk. Which almost reminds me a how children have temper tantrums which most of you know is a sudden, unplanned display of a spirit of anger manifesting. During a temper tantrum, children often cry, yell, and swing their arms and legs wildly, sometimes they even fall down carrying on like that and don’t seem to care who is watching. So you observe it is not just an act to get attention, they are truly upset about something.
Most children will grow out of having obvious temper tantrums, it is just that when they become adults and still have poor coping skills it becomes problematic. Sometimes we can read or watch the news and see these issues manifesting in world leaders and groups of people, like those who want to rid the world of Israel. Sometimes you see upset Christians in public places, or someone with road rage, throwing their hands and making a fist in the air, because truthfully they are having a charismatic worship service for the wrong kingdom. I’m just saying….

But let us consider how the Lord Jesus dealt with such things, for he model incredible patience.
Jesus gives us the same opportunities today to do as He does and wait patiently by extending mercy, grace and love.
2 Peter 1:1,” Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:
2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.”

Best to remember who you are in Christ all the time.
I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of Agape love. PASTOR CASPAR
