Title: The Man in Christ is Fully Forgiven

Notes:

(All scripture included here from this week's lesson are taken from King James 2000)


Count your blessings because God has given us so much!

It is important to know who we are in Christ. God has put something in us to let us know that we are important, that we are loved. When you confess Jesus Christ you are saved but it doesn't stop there. The Holy Ghost abides in us so that we can be that man God meant us to be (John 14:16-18). Without the Holy Ghost, we are like the rest of the people walking aimlessly down the street. With the Holy Ghost we have the power to succeed. The world cannot accept the truth except the Holy Ghost abides in them. The Spirit of Truth is Christ Jesus in you. The Spirit of God can guide you and allow you to minister. Without the Spirit of God leading you, you cannot truly succeed.

"The Man in Christ is Fully Forgiven!"

We are all invaluable to God. This is why Christ was sent to die for us. We are valuable to God. "I am the righteousness of God!" (say it with us) Don't let the devil steer you away or make you get upset. Everyone is valuable to God. Every child of God is valuable. God wants to take us further and to use us mightily.

He has quickened us and forgiven us (Colossians 2:13). The devil will try to let you know about your mistakes and will try to make you feel unimportant. God wants to take us further but the devil wants to bring us backwards. The devil wants to tear you down; he doesn't want you to tell the world there is a better way. There is someone out there who needs to know there is hope; we need to be able to tell them there is hope. There is a better way. The man [person] in Christ is fully forgiven. Tell someone there is hope for them. Give them hope. Reread Colossians 2:13 and realize that God has forgiven you if you are in Christ. God has forgiven all of your sins (if you are in Christ). Forgiveness is at the very heart of Christianity. Be able to forgive others the way Christ has forgiven us.

God gives us the Holy Ghost so that we can be successful. "We are the righteousness of God!" (yes, we are repeating ourselves because this is important for you to know/act/be) Tell someone how much God loves them. You are special in God's eyes. He wants to do great things for you.

"I am a child of God!" Say it each day and let it revive you! Don't let the devil tell you that you are worthless just because you make a mistake. We all make mistakes (we are human after all). Pull yourself back up and know that God loves you and forgives you. Don't listen to the voice of the devil. When God speaks to you He will let you know that He loves you and that you are valuable to Him. The devil will only lie to you.

We have forgiveness through the blood of Christ (Ephesians 1:7).

If you are in Christ, you have been born again as a new creature (2 Corinthians 5:17) ; the old man is dead; you are a new creature in Christ because the old has passed away. He has made us new again. Our sins have been forgiven. We are saved from the dominions of darkness.

If you say you have fellowship with God but you walk in darkness then you are lying. We must walk in the light to truly have fellowship with God. There is no darkness in God at all (1 John 1:5). When you have the blood of Jesus flowing in you it ignites a flame that cannot be extinguished except by your own will.

There was a time when we were not a people of God. We were like everyone else walking the streets. Know who you are in Christ (1 Peter 2:9-10). Cast down those thoughts the devil brings to your mind that try to tear you down. God gives us the Holy Ghost so we can stand against the devil. Without it you have no authority to force the devil to go away and leave you alone. The Holy Ghost gives you this power. Problems are going to come, they always do, but you will be able to withstand them if you have the Holy Ghost abiding in you.

The seed inside you will grow. It will not deteriorate as long as you feed it with the Word of God. Allow that seed to grow. It is an incorruptible seed which is the Word of God (1 Peter 1:23).

You are special to God! Let Him control your situations. Remember that He said "vengeance is mine" (Romans 12:19). Pray on these things. If you haven't already, accept the Holy Ghost into your life. Let Christ into Your life. Let God control your situations. You ARE Special!
