Apostle Grace Lubega
John 1:12-13(KJV); But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
I have known Christians who shy away from being recognised as Born Again. They cannot boldly claim so because they associate some form of stigma to who they are in God.
What a tragedy!
How can you be ashamed of carrying the life of God? How can you be ashamed of not being born of flesh and blood but the will of God? How can you be ashamed of being the temple of God? How can you be ashamed of having the same power that raised Christ from the dead? How can you be ashamed of being under a new covenant, of being a new creature in Christ, of the fact that old things are passed away and the new has come and all things are of God? How?
Be proud to be Born Again!
Say it with boldness, speak and confess it without apology.
It is who you are. Wear it as a badge of honour.
Understand that because you are born again, you are set apart, sanctified, peculiar and different!
It cost God His son to make you so; it took the shedding of divine blood to make you so; it took God becoming flesh to make you so; it took Him humbling Himself to the cross to make you so.
Embrace your identity with all the dignity and enthusiasm it deserves.

PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this truth. I know who I am and whose I am. I walk in the boldness of this truth because I am a child of the new covenant; unique and special in the eyes of God. I refuse to compare myself to the men of this world because I know that I carry the seed of true greatness. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
