Confess? Yes, who YOU are!

"Speaking to the Rock is confession. Confession is Homo Logo in Greek. Homo Logo is "speak the same", i.e. to speak the same as God speaks. Speaking the same as God speaks is positive confession; this confession is Christ centered and righteousness conscious. Whereas to confess what we have done wrong and ask God for forgiveness is a negative confession and this is self centered and sin conscious because we cannot believe He has forgiven us of all of our sins…!!!
  1. What did God say about us? We are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus!
  2. What did God say about our sin? We are forgiven, past, present and future! Hallelujah!
  3. What did God say about our life? He came to give us life and life more abundantly!
  4. What did God says about our financial standing? For I know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for my sakes He became poor, that I through His poverty might become rich. Hallelujah!
  5. What did God says about our lacks? God says he who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, accordingly to the power that works in us. And my God shall supply all my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus!
  6. What did God says about our infirmity? By His strips we are healed!"

Craig says...I like how Allan put confession, in the positive sense, it makes sense to me, it ties in with the gospel of grace perfectly...how often we focus on the wrong thing....not believing what God says about US...which ultimatley points to His kind, awesome, just, beautiful, caring, generous, selfless character...Lord, I love you.....

Great word about "confession!" My friend Mike and I often talk about the one confession that is needed, the confession of Christ (Romans 10:9-10), but this is a good word about agreeing with God about what He says of us.

I would disagree with Number 4, in that I don't believe that verse has the slightest thing to do with finances, but overall this is a great reminder of who we are in Him. It's all positive, with nothing negative!
