Security of Being Affirmed

Kathy — Identity is knowing who you are and being confident you have purpose for being here. The first shot FatherSonthe devil took at Jesus in the wilderness was at His identity: “If You are God’s Son, then command these stones.” However, Jesus was so confident of His identity that Satan couldn’t tempt Him to even have to prove it. (Matt.4:3-4) Affirmation establishes our self-worth. Satan said, “Since you are God’s Son, jump.” Matt.4:6 Let’s just see how far your Father will go to prove His regard for you. Many people grow up never being affirmed. This is My beloved Son in whom I’m well pleased,” affirmed Jesus personally and publicly. Satan couldn’t make Him test His own worth because he couldn’t make Him doubt His Father’s affirmation.


Relationship Shift

(LARRY BURDEN)— The Passover was also important to Jesus because a divine shift was coming to the disciples in their relationship with the Father. In John 15: 15, Jesus told His disciples, “No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you”. The terminology identified a relational shift from that of servant-master to one of son-father. Up to the night of the Passover, the relationship of the disciples to Jesus had been strictly business. However, after the Passover meal, that changed! In the new covenant, the disciples were no longer held by the Father as servants, but sons! That night was a divine appointment that had been in the making before the beginning of time! (LARRY BURDEN is speaking at Kingdom Congress 2019.)
