If we focus on what we were, we will never become who we really are in Christ.
Scriptures and Notes
1. Those who are led by the Spirit are the Sons of God
Romans 8:9-11 “But if God himself has taken up residence in your life, you can hardly be thinking more of yourself than of him. Anyone, of course, who has not welcomed this invisible but clearly present God, the Spirit of Christ, won’t know what we’re talking about. But for you who welcome him, in whom he dwells—even though you still experience all the limitations of sin—you yourself experience life on God’s terms. It stands to reason, doesn’t it, that if the alive-and-present God who raised Jesus from the dead moves into your life, he’ll do the same thing in you that he did in Jesus, bringing you alive to himself? When God lives and breathes in you (and he does, as surely as he did in Jesus), you are delivered from that dead life. With his Spirit living in you, your body will be as alive as Christ’s!"
2. Becoming like our Father, in character and in doing.
3. Deliverance belongs to the Son
4. He will show us how to do, what we do not know how to do.
If we focus on Jesus, He will show us who we are, and deliver us from who we were, into who we are called to me.
