Two Types of People
Posted in Family by Benham Brothers | May 1st, 2014
There are two types of people in this world – those who’ve been transformed by the power of Jesus & those who have not. And Satan wants to rob both.
For those who don’t know Jesus, Satan wants to rob them of their identity as humans created in God’s image so that they will never come to experience the abundant LIFE that God has given them in Christ. Once he robs them of their identity he can kill them. This is why today we hear people trapped in sin exclaiming, “this is just who I am.” It’s not who they are, but they feel as though it is because Satan has robbed them of the knowledge of who they really are. They must be reminded that they were created in the image of God to experience and manifest His life on the earth – and that God loves them and wants to give them LIFE. It’s like a circus elephant tied to a stake from which it cannot break free – or so it thinks. All it needs to do is realize that freedom is one small step away.
For those who do know Jesus, Satan wants to rob them of their identities as ministers of God. He knows that if believers in Jesus see themselves as ministers of God they will then behave like ministers, which is to serve others. Satan absolutely cannot have this! So he seeks to rob them of this identity by compartmentalizing their faith. Work becomes one compartment, family another, & faith another. No longer does the believer serve others, rather he serves himself while his faith sits dormant in the church compartment. Satan wins when this happens.
The key that unlocks the door to our destiny is seeing who we are – who God created us to be. Don’t let Satan’s lies take root in your life.
