23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.
To be with Jesus Christ begins with being born-again. Those who are born-again have the nature of Jesus Christ. The new birthempowers believers to fulfil God’s purpose. Those who are born of God overcome the world (1 John 5:4-5).
Jesus Christ explained the process of being born-again to Nicodemus who was a ruler of the Jews. Nicodemus was impressed about the works Jesus Christ performed. The Lord shifted the emphasis of the discussion from His works to the reason for the works – the reason for the works of God is the Kingdom of God (John 3:1-8).
He revealed that He came to the world to open the doors of the Kingdom of God to those who would be born again. Those who are born again are members of the Kingdom of God – they are IN THE KINGDOM WITH HIM. Believers must place renewed emphasis on the Kingdom of God.
Declare your victory over any challenge you’re faced with. By virtue of you being born of God, you have overcome the challenges of this world. You will not fail. You are an overcomer!
