“Let your life be a stepping stone to Christ and not a stumbling block.” 1 Cor. 8:13 & 10:31
By Pam Kanaly
Can you imagine receiving fifty million dollars from your deceased uncle and never depositing the check in the bank? Yet that’s what many believers do with their God-given inheritance granted at salvation. As a child of Christ the King, are you cashing-in on your spiritual heritage or living beneath your privileges? In Will the Real Me Please Stand Up, I’ve brought to light 100 benefits granted to every follower of Christ. These enrichments known as the “100 I am Blessings” highlight your new creature status. They grant spiritual power and vision and enable you to conquer defeat and step into a triumphant life.
I AM BLESSINGS
I am Accepted:
Believing that you are fully received by God solely by the work of the Cross is first base on God’s baseball field of the divine life. Romans 3:24– I am justified (accepted) as a gift by His grace.
I am a Conduit of the Holy Spirit’s Release:
Like a baby chick seeks release from the confinement of its shell, the Holy Spirit seeks liberation from being incarcerated in your flesh. 2 Corinthians 13:4 – The power of God has been directed toward you.
I am a Glory Giver:
Whatever you do from start to finish, your purpose is to become skilled at showingothers what God looks like by speaking of His greatness and spectacular goodness. Psalm 29:2 – Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name.
I am Lavished with the Riches of His Grace:
Believers receive grace gifts to aid them in their Christian experience: God’s Spirit, His Word, insight for daily living, divine enablement, God’s seal, protection, application of the fruit of the Spirit, and faith. Ephesians 1:7-8 – “We have redemption according to the riches of His grace.”
I am a Dangerous Threat to the Enemy’s Domain:
You are a prodigy of the Almighty, inoculated with the Holy Spirit’s antibodies against Satan’s forces and company of minions. You possess Kingdom Authority with Kingdom Weapons. Luke 10:17-19 – Behold I give you power to tread over all the power of the enemy.”
I am a Blessing:
To bless someone is to bring the Spirit of Christ into another’s presence. You are the carrier of His goodness, depositing His favor into others’ atmosphere. Hebrews 10:24 – “Consider how to stimulate one another….”
I am a Dweller of the Celestial City:
You don’t have to wait until death to partake in the joy of the New Jerusalem to come. Jesus, the Ruler of the Holy City, awaits your daily visitation through prayer and meditation. Revelation 21:1 – “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth.”
