Wrapped in Christ

Glory to God!

These past few weeks the Lord has been speaking to us about the powerful truth of what we have received in Christ. As God continues to establish us this year in our identity, values, purpose and position, He is giving us spiritual revelation for us to receive, understand, remember, trust in and apply so that we walk in the freedom of sonship. Hallelujah!

In his sermon entitled, "Eternal Life - Be Consumed!" Prem showed us that Jesus is eternal life and that the believer receives eternal life in Christ (John 1:4; 1 John 5:11,20). We saw further that eternal life is not just a life that exists eternally or begins once the believer dies, but that eternal life is a quality of life available to the believer in his or her knowledge of God (John 17:2,3). Prem pointed out that just as Jesus lived in perfect intimacy with the Father, experiencing the fullness of the Divine life, so the believer can participate in the same union with the Father and the Son and experience fullness of life - Eternal life! Hallelujah!

On Sunday, David shared a message entitled, "What are you wearing?" in which he spoke to us about being clothed with Christ. Looking at Luke 4:17-21 and Isaiah 61:1-3,10&11, we saw how Jesus came to exchange the believer's clothing with a garment of righteousness, peace and joy. David challenged us to examine our hearts to recognise whether we rely on ourselves and our circumstances for righteousness, peace and joy. When our righteousness, peace and joy are self-governed, we are not participting in the life of Christ with which the believer has been clothed. The Good News is that the believer has been clothed with Christ and can live by faith in His righteousness, peace and joy and experience fullness of life in Jesus! Hallelujah!
