How Could a Dead Cow Impact Your Life…. for the Better?
There are some really wild verses in the Bible! Some maybe that you haven’t thought about… but they can make a huge shift in how you view yourself and your life. If you think the Bible is boring, you need to read it again! Getting to know the Bible is like getting to know God Himself! I hope this video/blog will put a smile on your face and a spring in your step!

Think About This….
Do you know Who You Are? The reason I ask is because it really does affect your life, and your impact on those you know. There are lots of folks living under a cloud…and it shouldn’t be that way!
We all know Romans 6:23 – “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” That’s the bad news. But there’s good news too! And it overcomes the bad news! Like “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.” So now what? Who are we now? Just the same, but with a different final destination? Just the same, but now following (badly) a long and strict set of rules?
That’s not what the Bible says! 1st Corinthians 5:17 says “If anyone is in Christ, he is a NEW creation. The old has gone – the new has come.” Do you realize that? Do you enjoy life each day recognizing that you are a NEW Creation? It’s a huge shift in your thinking!
Here are a few more similar verses….s o you can look them up yourself and start to think about Who You REALLY Are! How ‘bout this one?
“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory” That’s in 2nd Corinthians 3:18. I didn’t put that verse in the Bible – it’s there – look in your own Bible! (If you don’t have one, they’re free on BibleGateway.com and the YouVersion Bible App) So when you believed in Jesus, something started to change in you. Not that you’re just following a new set of rules…but that you are being transformed….and not just into any image…into His image! To think….to act…to live…to love just like Jesus Himself!
♥ If you need another one, get this one from 1st Peter 1:4 – “We have become partakers of the Divine image.” So next time you look at yourself in the mirror….you might not see any change…but realize something is very different about you. He is changing you from the inside out.
Now it doesn’t say we BECOME God….so don’t get the big head. But it does say in 1st Corinthians 2:18 that we now have His Spirit in us – and the we have the MIND of Christ! WOW! That just might be powerful next time you’re tempted…remember Who You Are – His Spirit to guide you- to strengthen you – to empower you – His thoughts and purposes filling your mind. That’s what I call Transformation! And Romans 12:2 says we are “being transformed by the renewing of your mind”….so it’s not any surprise that He transforms us as we soak ourselves in His Words.
Ya know, the Bible doesn’t leave room for Super-Christians. No middle ground. We tend to straddle the fence… But there are only 2 groups – Old Man and New Man– and you’re in one of those groups.
I just love Romans chapter 6! The Lord does not mince words when He says that the old me is dead. Dead! Romans 6:11 says, “Consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God”! So next time temptation comes a knocking, remember that a dead person can’t do a thing. Nothing. Nada. You are alive to God, thank you very much. Alive to His voice. Alive to His ways. That’s just Who You Are.
Yeah, yeah, we’ll fight temptation until we take our last breath, but we’ve got a secret weapon, if we’ll just use it. It’s Who We Are! We are “More than Conquerors” because of His great love for us. And let’s not forget it! We are living branches connected to the Vine – and that makes all things possible. We can do all things through Him who loves us. You are a “New Creation.”
Now buckle your seatbelt and get a load of Galatians 2:20! “I have been crucified with Christ. (Yup – the old me is OVER!) Nevertheless, I live – Yet not I, but Christ lives in me! (WOW!! The eternal God lives inside of me! Did you get that?!!)) And the life I live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. “ I have a new direction- a new purpose – a new life – His life living in me – the One who loved me and died for me, rose from the dead and now lives in me to give me the power to live a new life. The Bible says it’s the same power in us that raised Jesus from the dead! That’s wild! But better yet – it’s TRUE! But we have to believe it – really believe it – act like – live like it….
Now that’s a message to take and share. That’s a message that can make a difference in this world. That each person you meet can become a partaker of the Divine image… can have the mind and the spirit of the Lord…all for the asking. Each one can be made alive and become a new creation.
So let’s go! Don’t keep this to yourself! Remember Who You Are today.
