Do you know who you are?   Leave a comment

Jesus changed Simon name to Peter, which means “rock”. Jesus told him in Matthew 26:18; “That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it”. So many times we look at people and judge who they are based on how they look or act and assume they are not righteous.

Peter messed up on several occasions. Peter rebuked the Lord Jesus (Matthew 16:22), Peter cut off the ear of a man (John 18:10), Peter denied the Lord Jesus, not once, not twice, but three times (Matthew 26:69-75). BUT YET, the Lord continued to call him Peter (the rock). Peter’s errors and mistakes did not change the way the Lord saw him. The Bible says to call those things that be not as though they were (Romans 4:17). Jesus continued to call Peter (the rock in which the church was built upon), even though Peter messed up. Jesus continued to call Peter (the rock) even though the Lord knew Peter was going to mess up. How do you look at a person who messed up? Do you see what the Lord sees or do you see what your natural eyes see? How about yourself. Do you see yourself and your faults or do you see what the Lord sees? Do you see yourself healed, prosperous, delivered, free? The word of God says those things about us (3 John 1:2). When we become born again, our spirits become new and just like Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17, Colossians 3:10). We have the same authority and power Jesus Christ did (Luke 10:19). The word of God says “as Jesus is, so are we (1 John 4:17b). The Bible tells us the Word is our mirror to who we really are in Jesus. The reason so many don’t act like who they really are, is because they don’t know it. That’s why renewing our minds is so important. We are already healed, prosperous, delivered, and too many don’t know it. Let’s see others and ourselves as God sees us and not what our natural eyes see.

Romans 4:17; (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

James 1:23-24; For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

3 John 1:2; Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

2 Corinthians 5:17; Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Colossians 3:10; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
