In these passages we see the heart of God toward us, we are no longer servants, we are now friends. Say it with me, “I’m a friend of God!” I pray you can say that and feel the significance in your heart. You see, as amazing as this transition is, it gets better. Not only did Jesus make us friends through his death, burial and resurrection; he also made us joint-heirs.
Use these passages as a tool for renewing your mind to the truth that you are seated with Christ in Heavenly places and He dwells within you in this Earth. Personalize these passages. See yourself through your new identity in Christ. Meditate on each one until you not only understand what they mean and you feel the associated emotions. While we don't live by emotions, we don't really believe a truth that we don't feel. Use these passages to become convinced of and confident in your new creation reality. All Scriptures are from the Amplified Version.
