Apostle Grace Lubega
1 Corinthians 15:42-43(KJV); So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
When the Lord Jesus Christ died, it was no ordinary death.
In death, He bore ALL the sins of the world. In death, He personified corruption, wickedness and all things immoral. In death, He was blemished, guilty, condemned and undeserving of redemption. In death, He represented everything the Father hated–sin.
But God raised Him from the dead. His resurrection is what completes the story and makes it the great testimony that it is.
He died a sinner and was raised as sinless. He died as condemned and was raised as pardoned. He died as corrupted and was raised as incorruptible. He died in dishonour and was raised in glory. He died in weakness and was raised in power.
YOU WERE ALL THE THINGS HE WAS ON THAT CROSS.
The good news is that you are now all the things He is when He was raised to life.
What a beautiful exchange!
Today, stir your spirit in the consciousness of who you became because Jesus not only died but He was raised to life.
You (the inner man) are sinless. He assured you in 1 John 3:9 that He that is born of God does not sin.
You are pardoned. In Romans 8:1, He says that there is no condemnation to those in Christ.
You are incorruptible because He says in 1 Peter 1:23 that you have been born again of the incorruptible seed that is His Word.

GOLDEN NUGGET: You (The inner man) are sinless. He assured you in 1 John 3:9 that He that is born of God does not sin. You are pardoned. In Romans 8:1, He says that there is no condemnation to those in Christ. You are incorruptible because He says in 1 Peter 1:23 that you have been born again of the incorruptible seed that is His Word.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this knowledge. I believe it and embrace it as the reality of my life. I know who I am in You and what You have done in my spirit. The testimony of the finished work of Calvary is alive in me, preserving me in holiness and in continuous victory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
