Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints (Colossians 1:26)
The purpose of Jesus’ coming to this world was not just to die for our sins. His ultimate purpose was to make us sons of God, so we could have eternal life and be like Him in this world, and in fellowship with God.
This is what Satan knows and hates with a passion! The Apostle John wrote, “And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life” (1 John 5:11-13 NIV).
Now that you’re born again, you have the life and nature of God in you. This is the essence of Christianity according to the Bible; it is Christ alive in you! Colossians 1:26-27 says, “Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
O, how He wants the whole world to know that they don’t have to live the ordinary human life that’s depraved and mortal! Remember that Jesus died for everyone in the world, and thus the God-life is available to all. Today, anyone who believes in Jesus Christ and confesses His lordship, receives this God-life and is brought into oneness with God. This was Christ’s ultimate purpose.
Dear Father, I’m grateful for the revelation of eternal life that I have received. Therefore, I live in the realm of incorruptibility, immortality, everlasting joy, peace and glory, reigning in life by Christ Jesus. Amen.
John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Galatians 2:20 – I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
John 10:10 AMPC – The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).

Confessions for Today!!!
The joy of the Lord is my strength. The Word is working mightily in me! The Spirit of Him that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in me and He has vitalized my body. I am superior to all forms of sicknesses and diseases. Health, strength, victory, and prosperity are mine now in the name of Jesus.I consciously make the Word of God the contemplation of my spirit; my mind is inundated with thoughts of progress and possibilities. I refuse to accommodate unhealthy and noxious thoughts or let the news of fear, disease, or death run my life. My mind is guarded and guided by the Word of God. I, therefore, live in divine health with daily experiences of ever-increasing glory, success, prosperity, and victory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
