introduction

i got this revelation when one day i was looking at myself as a Christian…

then i saw sin, shame, weakness, lameness and stupidity

then i remembered what the world used to tell me:

  1. i was sensitive. i heard the world says that is not good.
  2. i was conscious. i heard the world says that it is not good.
  3. i was hardworking. the world says that what is it for?

even back then as a non-Christian, i was rather depressed that i am nothing good.

i thought, “i am a good-for-nothing.

so depressed. i threw myself into depression.

i was thinking about ending my life. what’s so good about it?

what thing is good? nothing.

the Revelation

then came a time i became a Christian. the problem does come and go.

till one day, the Lord tell me:

  • “put whatever you have, good or bad on Me. I will make it beautiful.”
  • ” you will then stand back and see. you shall be a witness to the most beautiful thing u can ever imagine.”

then one may ask, “sin leh?”

two choices to dealing with sin:

1) you bear the guilt of it.

2) you put it on the LAMB of God on the cross.

(1) is too heavy for anyone. so heavy that only death can pay it (wages of sin is death).

death as in including 2nd death, which can be read in book of Revelation chapter 20 verse 14.

(2) is a comfort for anyone. it ‘s a way chosen by God too. 

realise that the smell of your sin being burnt on the sacrifice is so pleasing to God and it blesses your soul too – you found forgiveness and your soul is guilty no more!

got aroma from the sacrifice means got forgiveness, for it shows that God has already accepted the sacrifice.

what about me being too sensitive?

sensitivity placed on the Lord will become sensitive to the Holy Spirit.

you will be aware of His voice, His presence.

the movement of the Holy Spirit, you can sense!

but sensitivity on the flesh becomes ugly.

for e.g: in r/s when a guy/girl is too sensitive in the flesh and cause thoughts that aroused by the sinful nature like, ‘eh, he is seeing another girl/guy.‘ to take root in the heart. sooner or later, unpleasant things will happen.

what about being too conscious of others/myself?

conscience placed on the Lord will transform into being conscious of the work of the Son, being conscious of who you are in Christ.

knowing who you are in Christ is a big deal.

reason:

Romans 3:22
This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference,

righteousness from God is only found in Christ.

hence, when you know you are in Christ, you will realise that ‘hey, i am His righteousness!’

and this is confirmed by the following verse:

2 Corinthians 5:21
God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

it is only in HIM that we are the righteousness. well, if that is so, keep to that! continue to be in Him! every blessings go to the righteous! Amen!

Proverbs 10:6
Blessings crown the head of the righteous, but violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked.

 

summary

  1. everything placed on yourself, i.e: making yourself as the base, is simply ugly.
  2. everything on Christ is beautiful.

now you understand why God says, “Christ in you. Christ in you.“?

the truth that Christ is in you means that you are on Him.

you are beautiful only by THAT WAY and so, stay it that way! AMen!

 

everything is beautiful on Him,

Elson
