The Leverage Devotional by Apostle Segun Obadje 10 March 2024: The Learning of Christ

Leverage Devotional For Today Message:

Ephesians 4:20-24 shows us the importance of learning what Christ has done for us. It says, “But ye have not so learned Christ, if so be that ye have heard him and have been taught by him as the truth is in Jesus: that ye put off concerning the former conversation, the old man which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts and be renewed in the spirit of your mind; and that ye put on the new man which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” It is not enough to know that Christ died for our sins, we must also know what He did for us in His substitutionary death at Calvary. The Word tells us that when Jesus Christ took our place, He put on Himself our sins and our sin nature, and when He was raised from the dead, we became a new man in Him, having put off the old man or the old nature of sin. Every man in Christ has put off the old sin nature, therefore, we have no business with sin any more than Israel had business with Pharaoh after they had been emancipated from Egypt. We have put off the old man with his deeds of unrighteousness. We must reckon ourselves to be dead to sin indeed because we have put off the old man or nature of sin.

In addition to the fact that we have put off the old man, we must also know that we have put on the new man, which is the new nature, created after God in righteousness and true holiness. We no longer have the old life of sin and disobedience unto God; we have received the new life of righteousness and true holiness in Christ. So, the learning of Christ is learning to know what Christ has done for you in Him and learning to reckon those things to yourself. When you got born again, Christ Jesus stripped from you the old man, the old life, the old nature, the sin nature and made you a new man in Him (2 Corinthians 5:17). Now, bearing that in your mindset, renewing your mind to that is known as the learning of Christ. The learning of Christ means you must reckon yourself indeed to be dead to sin and alive to God in Christ. Start minding who you are in Christ; see yourself in the light of who you are, that you are a new man in Christ, created in God’s order in righteousness and true holiness. Hallelujah!

My Solid Front (Confession)
In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I declare that I am taught of the Lord and great is my peace. I walk in the light of Christ’s redemptive work for me. I believe and declare that I have put off the old man or nature of sin, and I have put on the new man in Christ Jesus. Amen.

Further Meditation: 1 Peter 1:23; James 1:18.

23 For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.

18 He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.
