We must know who we are in Christ. "My people perish for lack of knowledge.." says the Lord to Hosea. This is still true of His people today. Acknowledge who you were as a soul separated from God, then become fixated on Jesus and the life He has given you to live in this world right now. As you begin to rise, grab the hands of those around you and take them with you. We are ascending, not descending, live in the freedom and joy Christ purchased for you.
