I LIKE THAT “I AM” BUSINESS

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is… (2 Corinthians 5:17)

I am not trying to be, needing to be, hoping to be, or someday going to be. Right now, I am in Christ! Mark Hankins

When I was a senior in high school, I found 130 “in Christ” scriptures, wrote them down, and began to confess them. I put them on a cassette tape. Every morning when I woke up, I heard myself saying, “I am a new creation in Christ, old things are passed away, everything has become new.

I like that “I am” business. The world is full of people who are trying to be and used to be.  Have you ever heard somebody say, “He’s a wannabe”?

2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he IS a new creature.”  This is present tense — right now.  I am a new creation. I am the righteousness of God. I am triumphant. I am in “I AM” and so I am!

It is not something I am trying to get or something I am trying to do. It is something in my genes. I have been born again, and God’s life and nature is in me.  It is in my genes; it runs in my family. I am in union with the Champion. I am in union with the righteousness of God.  I am in Christ!

Confession: I am not trying to be, needing to be, hoping to be, or someday going to be. Right now, I am in Christ!
