A Super-being Indeed!
These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God
(I John 5:13).
As a born again child of God, the Father wants you to know that the life in you now is not the natural human life you got from your human parents when you were born into the world. That human life was supplanted by divine life—the God-life—(Greek: Zoe)—when you were born again. So you’re not just a mere man but a super-being indeed, born into God’s class of being.
Notice from our opening scripture the importance God attaches to you knowing that you have this life in you! He wants you to “know”, that means comprehend, come to the awareness, full perception, have the knowledge and be sure of what you have, and who you are: “… that ye may know that ye have eternal life.” He wants you to know that you’re a super-being indeed. One that’s superior to satan, sickness and disease and has authority over the powers of darkness.
God wants you to have this knowledge about yourself because the consciousness of your personality affects the way you live, the decisions you make, and how you eventually turn out in life! It controls what happens with you and around you.
There’re folks who think we will only have eternal life only when we get to heaven; some others believe it’s just a life that goes on and on without stopping, it includes that but much more. Eternal life is actually the nature of God imparted to us upon receiving Christ into our hearts, thus making us indestructible, “uninfectable” and superhuman. That’s the life Jesus brought to the world when He said in John 10:10 “…..I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
If you believe in Jesus this God-life is what you’ve received into your spirit. The very pulsating life of Christ is the life working in you now, and God wants you to be conscious of it and live that supernatural life, naturally. This is why The Gospel teaches that Christianity is not a religion, but the life of Christ lived out in you every day! Jesus lived a very supernatural life; and that’s the life He’s given you. It’s therefore imperative that you live and walk in the consciousness of the reality of the God life in you. Know that you can’t be defeated, for this triumphant life of Christ in you has made you a super-being indeed.
thank you for the victorious life you’ve given me in Christ. I live and walk in the consciousness of this life today and always, and I declare that satan and all the challenges he may pose are under my feet. Victory, success, health and prosperity are mine
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
