From Rascal to Righteous

Kenneth Copeland
He is not ashamed to call [us] brethren.

All of us struggle with habits at some time or another. We work at them and work at them to change. There may be some things in your life today that are a little slow in coming around. You will have to resist the devil in those areas. But you can stand against him. You can take the Word of God and put him out.

In the meantime, do not allow yourself to be subjected to harassment or condemnation, whether it be physical or spiritual. It’s dangerous.

Don’t let yourself or anyone else say things like, “I’m so unworthy. I’m so bad. I’m so worthless.” That’s against the Word of God. If Jesus walked through the door and stood right there for the next 20 years preaching every minute of every day, He would never call you unworthy. It’s proven it in Hebrews 2.

Jesus is not ashamed of you…therefore, you don’t have any business being ashamed of yourself!

So stop it and start believing what the Bible says. Believe that you’re God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus. Start confessing that. Instead of talking about what a messed up rascal you are, start agreeing with the Word and calling yourself the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:21). Practice seeing yourself that way. Practice seeing yourself operating in the victory. After all, Jesus has already won it for you. So receive that victory by faith!

Speak the Word

“Jesus is not ashamed of me, therefore, I am not ashamed.”  (Hebrews 2:11)
