Nuggets – Your Present Identity

Your Present Identity
“Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God.” (Ephesians 2:19)

Prior to salvation, we are called “aliens . . . and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world” (Ephesians 2:12). But now we are a “new man” and part of the grand partnership that has been made possible between Jew and Gentile, old and new covenant saints, and the operative impact and purpose of the “household of God” (Ephesians 2:13, 19).

We are brought near and made one. The enemy has been abolished, with the “middle wall of partition” that was between us broken down (Ephesians 2:13-15), making us “one body” with common “access by one Spirit unto the Father” (Ephesians 2:16-18).

Therefore, we are “fellowcitizens . . . of the household of God” (see 1 Timothy 3:15), built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, “fitly framed together,” growing into a holy temple “for an habitation of God through the Spirit” (Ephesians 2:19-22), now displayed in a fellowship of past and present, bond and free, male and female, all new “partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel” (Galatians 3:22-29;Ephesians 3:1-6).

Notice that “now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God” (Ephesians 3:10). This enormous impact is “according to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Ephesians 3:11).

God has designed His salvation for you in such a way that you cannot fail to achieve His plans for you! You should humbly thank Him for what He has accomplished in you through Jesus Christ. HMM III
