You Have Rights and Privileges
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. — 2 CORINTHIANS 5:17
So many people may know the Lord Jesus as their personal Savior and yet not know a thing in the world about their rights and privileges in Him. They don’t know who they are in Christ, because you’ll still hear them saying, “I’m so weak and unworthy.” No, they’re not!
If your spirit has been born again, you’ve become a new man in Christ Jesus (2 Cor. 5:17). And God doesn’t make any unworthy creatures. You’re a new creature in Christ Jesus. You have the life and nature of God in you. Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4). You are the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Cor. 5:21).
You have been redeemed from the hand of the enemy. Colossians 1:13 says, “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.” You’re not in the kingdom of darkness. You’re in the Kingdom of light. Satan is not your lord or master. Jesus is your Lord and Master.
Therefore, sin and sickness and disease can no longer lord it over you, because they are not your lord. Jesus is your Lord. And He doesn’t have sickness and disease. He has health and healing.
Confession: I am a new creature in Christ Jesus. I have the life and nature of God in me. I have been redeemed from the hand of the enemy. I’m no longer in the kingdom of darkness. I’m in the Kingdom of light. Jesus is Lord of my life—and He has health and healing, not sickness and disease.
