THE FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:
and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God,
who loved me, and gave himself for me (Galatians 2:20).
In our theme verse, Paul alludes to the faith of the Son of God—the faith of Jesus Christ! Did you know that He had faith in you? The Bible tells us that for the joy, the glory, that was set before Him, He endured the Cross, despising the shame (Hebrews 12:2). You’re that joy and
glory He saw for which He gave His life, not minding a criminal’s death. He saw what you’d become by virtue of His vicarious death.
The Bible says God’s dream was to indwell man, for man to be His living tabernacle. In Proverbs 8:31, the Bible says the Spirit rejoiced in the habitable part of His earth; but His delights were with the sons of men. Jesus gave His life to realize God’s dream: His dream of us becoming the glory of God; His dream of us becoming the righteousness of God; His dream of us becoming associates of the Godkind. He gave His life so God’s plan for us to have and enjoy life to the full would be realized.
Now we live in righteousness, prosperity, health, dominion, victory and excellence forever, because of the faith of Jesus Christ! He had faith in what He did. He had faith in you and trusted you with His life. He knew if you’d believe His Gospel, you’d become like Him, and now you’re like Him: “…As He is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).
Believe in what He did, who He is, and what He’s made you. Believe in yourself. Live by His faith. Decide that you’re going to be everything He died and came back to life for you to become, achieve, and enjoy. Make up your mind your life will be for His glory and for His praise as you
fulfill your destiny in Him.
I’m what God says I am. I’m an heir of God and a joint heir with Christ; I’m living God’s dream and enjoying the fullness of life. I walk in prosperity, health, strength, and victory now and evermore, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
