Who Are We?

For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:26).

In Acts 3:25, when the Apostle Peter was
preaching to the Jews, he said to them, “Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant….” Peter was speaking spiritually. He didn’t mean they were the children of the Prophets in the sense that they were born by the wives of the Prophets; no. There’s an understanding we need to get from this that’s very important: When he called them the children of the Prophets, he meant children of the promise, or the spoken Word. Now, if they were the children of the Prophets and of the covenants, who then are we? A major problem in the world today is identity crisis. Many don’t know who they are. They’re still grappling  with the questions: Who am I? What am I doing on earth? What’s my life about? The believers in the early Church didn’t argue with him (Peter), because they knew he was telling them the truth about their identity. They weren’t  in the covenant; they were the children of the covenant. Many Christians celebrate the idea that they’re in covenant with God. No! We’re not in covenant with God; we’re children of the covenant. That’s who we are; we’re the result of the covenant. Galatians 3:27-29 says, “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” The Apostle Paul, in the foregoing scripture, lets us know that we’re as much Abraham’s seed as the Jews that Peter addressed in his epistle. The new creation is the actual spiritual seed of Abraham. We’re heirs of the promise. Romans 8:17 says, “…if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ….”That’s who we are; that’s our identity! It’s a present-hour reality. Hallelujah!

Confession

I know who I am, and what
belongs to me. I’m Abraham’s
seed, an heir of God and a joint-
heir with Christ. Christ is in me;
in Him I live and move and have
my being. Greater is He that’s in
me than he that’s in the world.
Satan and the world are under
my feet. I live in victory, divine
health and prosperity, and my life
gravitates upwards and forward
only, from glory to glory, in Jesus’
Name. Amen.
