I believe deep down in our souls we all know the importance of prayer. And yet it seems to be the furthest thing from our minds until trouble comes. And for a lot of us, it’s the hardest thing to get around to doing.
Should we be proud of certain things in life? How do we determine what to be proud of? What does the bible have to say about pride?
Before we explore the answers to these questions let’s look at…
1. We are a chosen people. It was the Lord who initiated or first pursued a relationship with us. 2. He ordained us as kings and priest bring forth fruit. 3. The Lord promises that our fruit should remain. Beloved it’s an eternal fruit that remains. 4. We have power of attorney and the use of his name. Which leads us on to the next declaration.
If we don’t have security in our relationship with the Lord Jesus how can we possibly get anything accomplished, and what will we as believers have left to stand on? In the first part of this study lesson series “Acceptance” the statement was made that instead of us asking “who am I in Christ”? We should be declaring “Who we are in Christ”. Well, let’s start declaring our security in Christ just as well as we have declared our acceptance in him.
