#AbioyeSpeaks: Who Are You? [Guest Post]
The article below is spiritual (not religious in anyway) and it resonates with me. The article was sent to me by a very good friend of mine. I hope it resonates with you too....
"And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?" [Acts 19:15]
Reading your bible is non-negotiable as a Christian or else you'd be oppressed, beaten and battered by the enemy. You have to know who you are, your standing in Christ because that's what gives you the authority to use His name.
In [Acts 19:13-15] it was clear that the sons of Sceva didn't have any identity in Christ. Examine the statement the evil spirit said in verse 15: "Jesus I know and Paul I know; but who are ye?". The evil spirit even gave them an opportunity to talk about their standing by asking "Who are ye?".
But they obviously didn't have any standing and obviously no answer, they simply copied Paul. The end result was clear in verse 16. They enjoyed the beating of their lives.
In our daily lives, challenges would come asking this same question "Who are ye?". YOU EITHER HAVE AN ANSWER OR GET A BEATING. There's no mid-point. It's high time we started studying the scriptures consistently.
ACTION POINT: Start from a daily study of the word to build a strong sense of your rights and privileges in Christ.
