Your position of Royalty in His Kingdom.

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me and I will show you great and mighty things which you know not.

I am always encouraged by the above words, when I remember the promise that our Lord gave us as Christians. Have you ever wondered your position in Christ as a believer? Have you ever thought of these? I’ve got a few lessons to share with you.Join me in a this published teet-a-tete.

  •   In Romans 8:14-15 ‘because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the Spirit that makes you slave again to fear, but you received the spirit of Sonship, and by Him we cry Abba Father.’

The above verse speaks it all. Imagine being called the Son of the Most High God. It is from  Him that  all the other kings reign, think of these, being associated with the state’s royal family. A son to the President…ok or maybe a daughter in law or a son in law to the president. That raises you status quo. Here Jesus Christ gives you a chance to be a co-heir with Him in heaven, imagine! If you realize that, you will take yourself in a noble way as the son of God.
  •    In 2 Timothy 2:20-21 ‘In a large house there are many vessels not only made of gold and silver but also made of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble. If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the master’.

Not to add much the verse is self-explicit, you get to see where the Lord will places you once you cleanse yourself and  accept to be used of Him. Let’s identify ourselves and the roles we can play for the Master. Thus we will realize the position of royalty given to us by Him.

Peter had realized his position of royalty in Jesus Christ, thus he was the first and the last disciple to walk on water like Christ (Mathew 14:22-33). If you get to know how big you are in Christ, you won’t relent when someone asks you to stop while pursing your dreams.
I once heard;
If you become casual in your dreams, you will end being a casualty’-Les Brown.
Then with the confidence derived from the scriptures, I believe you are capable of doing great things, soaring great heights and even dreaming big.
The only secret in identifying your position of Royalty in Christ Kingdom is to put your faith on board, then be prayerful  as well as you’ve got  inoculate yourself against the pessimism in life.
We serve a great King.
