IMG_8102.PNGIn one sense (positional justification), believers in Christ already ~are~ what God wants us to be, and we are seated in the heavenly realms with God. In the rest of our earthly lives, we have the opportunity to live out of our status as children of God, following His indwelling Spirit, by our spirits. When we do this, we become sanctified in practical reality, we live in fellowship with God, and we become powerful in doing the will of God, knowing Him deeply.
