2 Corinthians 5:17 “So then if any man is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new.”
Did you know that the comic book character Superman was born on the planet “Krypton”, then rocketed to earth by his scientist father as an infant, just moments before Krypton’s destruction? The story goes on to say that he was discovered and adopted by a Kansas farmer and his wife, raised as Clark Kent, and instilled with a strong moral compass. Very early on he began to display superhuman abilities, which he resolved to use for the benefit of humanity. As an adult, he became a journalist with the “Daily Planet” newspaper in the fictional city of Metropolis.
Enough about Superman, how about you and me…we’re super-human! According to 2 Corinthians 5:17, the day we got born again, one third of us became “wall to wall” Holy Ghost. When a child of God says, “Well, I’m only human”, that’s not true, they’re not “only human”. That phrase shows that they haven’t grasped the fact that in their born again spirit they are totally and completely supernatural.
In their spirit is everything they need to overcome in this life, where the fruit of the Spirit comes from, where the love of God resides. In their spirit, there is no sickness or depression, no lack or weakness. As a supernatural born again Christian, I learned many years ago that I didn’t have to receive allergies every spring. Nobody prayed for me, I just simply said, “From now on I refuse to allow allergies to make me tired, constantly sneezing, and all stuffed up”.
How could I do that? Because we are not “only human”, we can do supernatural, superhuman things that even Superman couldn’t do! I know some of you think I’m strange, but John 14:12 says “We can do the works of Jesus”, and in John 11 it says, we “received power to be sons of God”, and 1 John 4:17 says, “As He is, so are we in this world”. We get to choose, are we going to live like “Clark Kent” and “only human”, or are we going to live like Superman. We have the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead living in us, how can we possibly be “only human”?
Jesus said to “cleanse the leper”, that’s an incurable disease, but we have the supernatural power to live without sickness. We’re not subject to the world’s economic system, we don’t have to live an “only human” life on earth. Start living like a super-human, living according to what the Word says, you live healthy, you live debt free, your family is restored. Supernatural things happen to you every day because…you’re super-human!
