We Are Divine Beings – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional September 4th

(The Christian Is No Ordinary Human Being)

TO THE BIBLE: Acts 14:11 NIV
“When the crowd saw what Paul had done, they shouted in the Lycaonian language, “The gods have come down to us in human form!””

The Bible recounts an inspiring story in Lystra where Paul performed a miraculous healing on a man who had been lame since birth.

Witnessing this incredible act, the crowd became overwhelmed and began to call Paul and Barnabas gods.

They were on the verge of worshipping them when Paul and Barnabas swiftly intervened, speaking urgently to the crowd, “Friends, why are you doing this? We too are only human, like you.

We are bringing you good news, telling you to turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made the heavens and the earth and the sea and everything in them” (Acts 14:15 NIV).

At this point in their lives, the apostles thought they were mere humans; they said so and thought so. They said, “Look, we’re humans just like you.”

Their humility was right, but their answer was wrong. They were supposed to say to the people, “Don’t worship us.

This is the message we’ve brought to you: that you also have the potential to become gods if you believe in Jesus.” The people found out who these men really were. They discovered they weren’t humans; they were gods in the form of men, and they were right.

The Bible says, “I said, “You are gods, and all of you are children of the Most High”” (Psalm 82:6). Yet you hear some Christians say, “We’re just ordinary people.” They think talking that way makes them humble.

No! It just shows how ignorant they are. We were ordinary until we were born again. Now that we’re born again, we’ve become the place where God lives. Each one of us is the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit, the creator of the entire universe, lives in you! Your body is His living tabernacle. This is a reality, and it has to come into your consciousness. You have to think this way!

Until you become conscious of it, the power within you won’t work for you. Never again say, “I’m just an ordinary human being.” When you believed in Jesus Christ, you became a God-man, an associate of the God-kind.

You were literally born of God. You’re actually a supernatural being. God made you exactly like Himself: “…As He is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17). You have the life and nature of God now. Hallelujah!
