Where Are You, Now?

"He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,"
Colossians 1:13 (NKJV)

"No matter where you go, there you are", is a sort of funny way to explain where you are located, but there is some truth in the statement.  When you go somewhere, you are then in that place and not where you were before.  If you were in one place, but all you talked about was the last place you were at, it would be a bit strange and, in some cases, rude.  No one is really happy with someone who moved to their present location who is always talking about where they used to be and what that place was like.

Before we were born again, we were living in spiritual darkness and we were spiritually separated from God.  Once we accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we were transferred into the Kingdom of God, we are now a part of the Body of Christ.  But, if you listen to a lot of Christians talk, you would think those people are still living in the devil's kingdom and not in God's Kingdom.  They seem to identify more with where they used to be than where they are now

Many believers do not really know who they are in Christ, so they are always talking about where they used to live, spiritually.  Where we are, now, spiritually, is what we need to talk about.  It is a bit strange, and a bit rude to God and all that He has done for us, to keep saying all kinds of things that are more connected to where we were in the past than where we are now.  Find out who you are in Christ, what God has done for you in Christ, and all that God wants to do in and through you and talk about that, that is where you are, right now!
