…as He is, so are we in this world.
1 John 4:17
God loves to point you to His Son, Jesus, because as Jesus is right now, so are you in this world! The enemy, on the other hand, loves to have you focus on yourself or man.
For example, he loves to point you to your faults as well as your spouse’s faults. He makes you look at yourself and ask, “Why am I so impatient?” He makes you look at your spouse and wonder, “Why are you so slow to change in this area?” The enemy will never suggest that as Christ is, so are you. Your challenge then, is to look away from the “I,” look at the Man at the Father’s right hand and say, “As Jesus is, so am I in this world. And as Jesus is, so is my spouse!”
It’s the same when it comes to symptoms of sickness you may experience. If you’ve been told that you have a heart condition, the enemy will point you to yourself and say, “Can you feel the pain? It’s coming back, isn’t it?” My friend, that’s the time you need to say, “No, no, no! Look at Jesus. His heart is in perfect condition. As His heart is, so is my heart in this world!”
“But, Pastor Prince, what good can happen by just looking at Jesus?”
The Bible says that as you behold the glory of the Lord, the Holy Spirit in you goes to work, transforming you into the very same image from glory to glory (2 Corinthians 3:18). My friend, your true identity—who you truly are and what you have—is found in Him. So keep looking at Jesus and His life will manifest in yours!
