Thousands of believers have missed the whole point of the purpose of our life on earth. Let’s learn to discern what it really means to live in God’s eternal value system. Let’s derive our eternal identity through identification with the death, burial, resurrection, and ascension of Christ.
The measure that I allow God to love me in every area of my life is the measure that I’m going to love people who don’t measure up to my expectations. We can share God’s love with these people all because we have a divine self-image.
I know my weaknesses, I know I have an old sin nature, and I know I’m going to use rebound. Still, I can have a divine self-image because Jesus Christ gives me an exchanged life through the Cross. I only need to make sure I keep receiving an exchanged life through faith, study, and fellowship with Him.
When my expectation is from God, then I can be released in an eternal identity that declares, “God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.” Amen!
