7. Friendship with God is another game changer for us. Jesus put it like this: “No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you. (John 15:15) When we transition from slavery to friendship with God, (by keeping His commandments), we are suddenly introduced into a realm of revelation that only Jesus walked in. We have access to “all things” that were revealed to Jesus.
WE ARE NOT MERE MEN (OR WOMEN)
There are many other profound advantages that we, followers of Jesus, have over those who have yet to experience His transforming power. But it should suffice to say that the most creative, inventive, ingenious, imaginative, inspired, brilliant, resourceful, innovative, advanced ideas should be flowing from the sons and daughters of God! When the first century Corinthian church was struggling with jealousy and strife the apostle Paul rebuked them by reminding them that they were behaving like “mere men.” (See 1 Corinthians 3:3.) We are not just humans! We are alive in the Spirit, sons and daughters of the God of the universe, endowed with wisdom, commissioned with power, and given authority to make a profound difference in the world. It’s passed time that we rise to our high call in Christ Jesus and start thinking like royalty!
OWNING OUR INHERITANCE
So my challenge to you today is to wake up! Any difficulty that may come your way, take a minute to stop and remember the true advantages you have as a believer and then ACT LIKE IT. Some of you may even be wondering what your next step in life, in your career, in your business should be, and I want to encourage you to remember where you sit in this life—in heavenly places. I bless you with a revelation of the solutions, creativity and wisdom you inherently carry in Jesus name! How do you walk in these truths?
