    Who or what are we before people?

    • “Behold their sitting down, and their rising up; I am their music. Render unto them a recompence, O LORD, according to the work of their hands.” (Lamentations 3.63,64).

    One of the most important questions to be posed is “who are we? Not knowing the response for this question can bring about us many defeats (for instance, to be beaten up by the demons, as took place in Acts 19.13-16). If we don’t know who we are, we don’t work out the greatness of what Jesus did for us, much less we can believe that this is for us. It seems very good to be truth.

    This make us slave of the fear of the death (Hebrews 2.14,15), as well as of Ha-Satan and his wretched system that brings the serfdom. At this case, we will wind up let that people that don’t have any acceptation before Jesus determine who we should be. From this, we end up being what people want us to be, and not who we have to be according to the role that Jesus established for us in His body.

    Jeremiah, for instance, was being the song of the people, that is, their carnal amusing. And what about us? Are we being the source of wealthy, bothering, disturbance, anguish, concerning, loathing, deception, despondence etc., or are we source of healthy relish, peace, love, mercy, etc.?

    Don’t mind with the sitting down or the rising up of the people around you or with the work of their hands; much less with the vicissitudes of the life. Instead of focusing your energies trying to make the Lamb of the Creator get angry at who tell you off or hurt or harm you, keep focused on:

    • The grace that was done much more abounding where the sin dared to abound (Romans 5.20);
    • The glory which shall be revealed in us after we become more than conquerors on the sufferings of this present time (Romans 8.18,37);
    • The blessing that we will inherit when Jesus brings to Him, that who treated us with evil or railing.

    There is affluence of so many beautiful and wonderful boons waiting for us in the throne of the grace (Hebrews 4.16), why would we dally over thoughts and feelings that only wear us out and steal our salvation? Have a nice weekend in Christ Jesus.
