Wisdom For The Day Devotional 23 June 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo: Jesus Christ Has Delivered You
TOPIC: Jesus Christ Has Delivered You (TREM Devotional 23 June 2023)
“He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,” Colossians 1:13
Jesus Christ, who was sinless, born without blemish, without wrinkle, and without spot became our propitiation and scapegoat. He became our substitute. In other words, He became us so that we might become Him. He delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the Kingdom of his dear Son.
Jesus Christ had delivered us from the power of darkness. I don’t know what area you feel bound to, you are already delivered. You must have this understanding. This must be your mentality! You are not going to be delivered, you are already delivered. You will be shocked how many people go to church and they still believe they need deliverance. No! You are already in Christ and Christ is not bound. So, you are not in any bondage whatsoever.
If you don’t have this understanding, you will still walk in bondage. Though you are saved, you cannot walk in liberty. You cannot walk in the liberty of your salvation when you still believe that you are bound. It is an insult to the Kingdom of God for a believer to believe and accept that he is under bondage. You may not understand your liberty and you may not have fully applied it to your life, but that does not mean that you are not delivered. As far as heaven’s economy is concerned, a new creation is not under any bondage. You have been delivered!
According to Galatians 3:13-14: “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”
Jesus already bought us back from the curse of the law. All believers have been delivered from whatever constitutes a curse. The price has been fully paid.
