Understanding The Believers Identity In Christ
How can a Believer have an understanding of his/her identity?
We have laboured through this series, teaching and providing insight on the believer’s identity in Christ and so much has been made clear already. But one major aspect to be considered which is really significant and without which, all of this would not be meaningful, is the way the believer gets to understand his/her identity in Christ. So how does the believer gets to understand his/her identity? Mind you, to have knowledge is completely different from having an understanding. Example, many of the people reading this, have come to know the believer’s identity, but not all of them have an understanding of this reality.
There is a greater need to always have an understanding of the knowledge you have received. Understanding enables the believer to operate in confidence and full assurance of what he knows he has received. It was one of the important prayers Apostle Paul prayed for the believers in Ephesus,. In order for the believer to have an understanding of his identity in Christ, he/she needs to spend time in fellowship with God.
The believer’s fellowship with God brings him to that place of understanding the knowledge of God he has received. A place of fellowship where he prays with the word and meditate on the word. A place where illumination and revelation of the word takes place. A place where the eyes of his understanding is enlightened. The believer’s fellowship with God brings about an understanding of his identity in Christ. God bless you. Jesus be glorified.
One thing is sure, when you understand Christ as your king, you can get everything you want in life, and you can’t understand him when you don’t believe in him.
