Who Am I? - Every Man Ministries - September 24

Kenny Luck, men's pastor at Saddleback Church, founded Every Man Ministries to revolutionize men’s ministry, free men spiritually and ignite spiritual health worldwide

Who Am I?

For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to sin, but you received a Spirit of sonship and by him we cry “Abba Father: The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God - Romans 8:15-16

The Holy Spirit changes the way we think about ourselves to create a secure and accepted man who seeks to please God, versus what? An insecure man who battles for the acceptance of others, who seeks to please people and who loses his identity in the process. The Holy Spirit tells us over and over, “Your dad loves you” And we let in the truth about how God feels about us, we transform and become “more than conquerors through him who loved us”. Romans 8:37

The Holy Spirit reminds me of my future which gives me confidence in the present. When a man feels good about the vision he is working toward, he confidently pursues it. The Holy Spirit reminds every believer that a very specific process of becoming like Christ and a very specific plan for the future will be executed because we are in Christ. I call it the end zone dance. It is a moment in time when we celebrate the victory of Christ and our own part in that victory. The end zone is in sight, as is the glory that goes with it

When the Holy Spirit enlightens a man, he explains and makes clear the will of God. His personality and mission are intimately linked to affecting our thinking and indoing so, He influences our living. His knowledge, power, authority and proximity to God’s man gives the Holy Spirit the swing vote on all matters of life

Father, you see me as more than a conqueror in spite of how I see me.
