“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2Corinthians 5:17
As a believer, if you always have the mentality that you are in right standing with God, you will discover that sin will not be an issue in your life. Wake up in the morning and begin to thank Him for what He has done on your behalf- the mighty victory He has given unto you. “Lord I thank you for loving me with an everlasting love. Thank you that sin has no dominion over me”.
Beloved, when God looks at you He is not thinking about sin, He sees you holy, righteous and sanctified in Christ. The garment of the high priest is the picture of the church. On the crown on his head is written, “Holiness unto God”. That refers to the thoughts in your head. At times the thoughts we put in our head, if we put it on the screen, some of us will run away. But as God looks at your thought, He sees holiness unto God. Your thoughts are of God. That’s the way He sees your thoughts. He sees your thoughts as being pure because He is looking at it through Jesus.
The most expensive part of the high priest’s garment is the shining ornaments. When you throw light on them, you will think it is for the exposition of the wrong things you have done. No! It is not. When you throw lights on a diamond, what does it do? It shines. So, as far as God is concerned, you must stand before Him as the brightest star that He has ever seen. That is why He puts you in Christ.
You are in Christ. You have been “in-Christed”. It is very important, therefore, that you see yourself in Christ. You will never lose any battle. You will not fear any accusation of the devil. See yourself in Christ and you shall win all the time.
