In this image we see a physical body. We know what we look like in the physical. But do we really get who we are in Christ? My guess is we don’t! If we were to get a grasp of who we are in Christ it would transform our lives! Jesus has already done all the work that is needed for us to be saved from our sins, healed from all the physical issues that plague us, and delivered from anything that causes distress. In Ephesians 2: 6-10 we read “God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork,created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Jesus did the work in advance that is needed for us to have what we need to do what Jesus has called us to do! If Jesus has already done the work then why do we continue to beg and plead with God to move? He has already moved, he did his part when he came to earth as a babe, lived a sinless life, was filled with the Holy Spirit, was tempted in everyway. Then at the end of His physical life Jesus submitted himself to a humiliating death. He was beaten and then nailed to the cross and left to die. After He died Jesus rose from the dead! And then He sent the Holy Spirit to help us do what we can’t do on our own. By doing all this Jesus did all that is needed for every work! Jesus has already done the work! We just need to claim it then accept that the work has been done. This applies to every area of our lives. It applies to our physical needs, emotional needs, and most importantly our spiritual needs. So since the work has already been done, all we need to do is receive it!
Recently while watching Andew Wommack’s program called “Gospel Truth”, I learned a new way to pray and I’m amazed at how effective it is! Is is called Sandwich Prayer and there are only 3 parts to it. One praise God, two, present your requests to Jesus, and three, praise God again. It is incredibly simple! If you want to know where I learned these lessons specifically let me know. It is on Andrew Wommack’s website.
