Topic: God Sees You The Way He Sees Jesus [TREM Devotional 9 January 2021]

“And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the first born from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.” Colossians 1:18 (KJV)
The church is the body and Christ is the head; both are one! You cannot say God sees the Head which is Christ as perfect and the body- the Church as imperfect. You cannot say Christ is accepted and His body is rejected. It’s not true! The measure of Jesus’ acceptance with God is the same measure of your acceptance with God. So anything God says about Christ applies to you. It makes no sense to say that the Head is well and the body is sick. Whatever happens to your head will also affect your body because they are connected. If your head is blessed, your body will be blessed. If your head prospers, your body will prosper. If your head has wisdom, you have wisdom because as He is, so are we. Whatever perfection, joy and peace that Jesus brings to the Father’s heart is the same with what you have in your account.
As He is a sweet-smelling aroma to the Father, so are you. Whenever the Father sees you, you smell nice; you are not polluted. The same acceptance He has for Jesus is the same acceptance He has for you. Why are you separating yourself? When you see yourself with Christ, you will see that Christ is releasing all your needs. He is releasing healing, wisdom, riches, and many other things because we cannot be separated.
Don’t let the devil tell you otherwise. No! We are one with Him. The Bible says: “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:4-6 KJV). You are seated where Christ is and the devil is under your feet.
