I am grateful to God for the privilege to write the second part of this article and also for you to be able to read it, understand your position in Christ and walk in full realisation of it. It is my prayer that this light you have received about who you are, will never be lost. Your understanding will be broadened by the day and your path shall be clearer!
In this second part of this article, I will be discussing with you on your role as royalty. Your royal status is unquestionable, but your assuming it depends on whether you believe it or not. However, with every position comes responsibilities and to perform those responsibilities appropriately, you must know and assume your role. Some of these roles include:
You are a priest: As a king or queen on the earth, you are ordained to be a priest; not just a priest but a royal one. Just as it is in the natural, you lead others to Christ through your comportment, testimonies and works. You are a royal being, so you should carry yourself in elegance and live in the consciousness of who you are.
The Salt of the Earth: Your royal status also positions you as the salt of the earth, and the Bible says: Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men (Matthew 5:13).
Your will not lose your savour and you shall not be cast out under the foot of men! However, you must understand that in order not to lose your savour, you must continue to provide sweetness, preservation and taste to all around you. As royalty, your life must be that of added value not just to yourself, but others.
This is reflective in your thoughts, actions, words and deeds. See yourself as the solution to issues of the world, not adding to what is already on ground.
The Light of the world: Understanding and walking in line with your royal status makes it possible for others to assume their position in Christ through you. Light drives darkness away, thereby bringing to view every hidden part. Therefore, your role is to illuminate your generation, set the pace for others to follow and teach those after you on how to be lights themselves.
You are an ambassador: As royalty, you are a representative of Jesus on the earth, who is the King of all kings (Revelation 19:16). So, you are by privilege supposed to enjoy the immunity of heaven. This gives you authority over every force of the devil here on the earth. So, you are not supposed to be molested and threatened by negative situation or circumstance around you.
The understanding of your role and what you carry forms your thought about yourself and your attitude towards life. Understanding also helps to form your character. That is why it can be said that those who don’t know who they are in Christ can easily be lost in the world.
For instance, Joseph understood who he was and could not be swayed by any negative situation. Daniel, Shederach, Meshach and Abednego also refused to be corrupted or defiled because they had an understanding of their royalty and as such could not be threatened by even the king’s decree.
So, from today, fill your mind with the knowledge of God’s Word, especially on your spiritual status and walk in it no matter the situation you are confronted with. Remember, your thoughts conforms your choices and attitude.
To appropriate all of the above information, you need to be born again. This means receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Saviour. Truth is, you can be born again by just saying this prayer in faith: Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I believe You died and rose again for my sake. Forgive me of my sins, take over my life, make me Your child and let Your peace reign over my life. Thank you for saving me. Now I know I am born again!
Congratulations, you are now born again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary. All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you, in Jesus’ Name! Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through email@example.com, OR call 07026385437 and 08141320204.
