See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.
1 John 3: 1 - 3 (NIV)

We have to come to terms with our identity in Christ. Our minds must be kept constantly renewed putting off the old man, putting on the new man. Stripping off the slave mentality, and putting on the royal mind set, then I can do what God say I can do, I can be what God says I can be. Purifying ourselves from everything that is not in line or stand opposed to who we are in Christ. Yours in Him.
