“For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]. Ephesians 2:10 The Amplified Bible
Ever since the Garden of Eden it has been satan’s aim and goal to mess up the image of God. He has always worked on man to get him to see himself in some other way than the way that God sees him. This is a major factor in issues that we have with war, lust, insecurity, divisions and competitiveness that has its source in envy and strife. Of course this is an issue in the world. However, it is also an issue in the church, the body of Christ. We must leave this realm of satanic deception and walk in the realm of the new creation. When we look at ourselves, we must see what God sees. He does not see us as insecure, low–life, insufficient and cowardly. He sees us as He made us in Christ Jesus. The key for you and I is for us to see ourselves the same way. However the Father sees Jesus is the way that he sees us. It is way past time for the members of the body of Christ to renew their minds to this. When this takes place, oh how different life will be!
