You Already Have It!

What?

I already have it!

YES!

Through adoption by God, you already have it.

Power, authority and freedom from fear.

As an adopted child of God we are adopted into the family of God

and become joint heirs with Jesus Christ.

Romans 8:15

For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear,

but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out

“Abba Father”.

As an adopted child of God,

we have been given the same rights as the Son

and have been given a new name, a new identity in Christ.

Most importantly, through adoption, we

have been given power and authority to overcome

“all the power of the enemy,” (Luke 10:19)

Jesus had authority over everything; to cast out demons,

heal the sick and over disease.

Matthew 28:18, Mark 1:27, Luke 7:7

As joint heirs with Christ, we inherit eternal life,

the authority to speak over our lives in His Name

and receive all that Christ possesses.

Every person is from God, but not all have been

adopted as sons of God.

To receive your inheritance you must receive Jesus

as your Lord and Savior.

Then all that He has is yours!

Willing

Jesus once told a leper “I am willing”.
Jesus reached out His hand and touched the man.
“I am willing,” He said.
“Be clean!”
Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy.
 
Lepers were outcasts of society.
They lived separately and no one touched them.
Yet Jesus was willing to reach out, touch the man and heal him.
 
Jesus was willing to heal a blind man on the Sabbath.
John 9
He was willing to speak with the woman at the well.
Even though she was a Samaritan and Jewish people were not to
have any contact with them.  Yet Jesus was willing.
 
Jesus was willing to sit with thieves, beggars, tax collectors and sinners.
Jesus was willing to hang on a cross. 
 
How many of us are willing to follow in Jesus’s example?
How many of us will love the unlovable, talk to the homeless,
forgive those who have sinned against us, or help
those who are in need.
 
I am willing!
 
Are you?
