“ The “need to become” is a life of striving, centered on self occupation. The Christian life, hooked on “I am” is anchored on true rest in the finished work of Christ. We are not striving to be righteous or holy and neither are we trying to be victorious or healed. Christ has become our righteousness, holiness, redemption, healing and victory through our union with Him. The Christian who is sick and weak in their bodies are not weak and sick people trying to become healed and strong. They are strong and already healed saints in Christ, that Satan is trying to make them feel as weak and sick. In your born again spirit you are already strong and healed through the stripes of Jesus Christ. You don’t strive for healing or God’s attention through self work; you receive the manifestation of power and healing in your body through faith. Stop trying to become and rest in Christ Jesus for what He has already accomplished for you.“
God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin. [1 Corinthians 1:30 NLT]
He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that, having died to sins, we might live for righteousness; you have been healed by His wounds. [1 Peter 2:24 HCSB]

Wonderful message. God’s grace and Christ’s work is sufficient for all of the believers needs. Great site. Thank you!!!
I am of I Am – so often in our hearts as Am I of I Am. How do I become more I am. Must work. Harder. This heavy yoke.
And then He “gets it” into our hearts so we “get it” too. I am. I just am. I am of I Am.
McD – I just love this post! Thank you!! 🙂
And then He “gets it” into our hearts so we “get it” too…I am of I am” – Is like the Bible says; Just as He is so are we in this world. Thanks Paul for how you play with words to simplify hard truth.
