📖 TO THE BIBLE
Romans 12:3 RSV “For by the grace given to me I bid every one among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith which God has assigned him.”
◀️ LET’S TALK
Some people’s understanding of our opening verse is that we should not think highly of ourselves, but that’s not what the Spirit is saying to us here through the Apostle Paul. God wants you to think highly of yourself, but not more highly than you ought to think. In other words, don’t think you’re higher than your fellow brothers or sisters in Christ. That’ll be pride, and God resists the proud. You, however, have to think highly of yourself, because you’re valuable to God; you’re special; you’re royalty. To be seated with Christ in the heavenly realms means you’ve been raised high: “And (God) raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:6).
Ephesians 1:21 gives further insight into your exalted position in Christ: “Far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.” Do you see how high you are in Christ? The Lord Jesus has been set far above all the different classes of spiritual beings: principalities, powers, might or thrones, dominions and every name that is named, and you’re in Him.

The Father set Jesus in this high place of glory, placed all things under His feet, and legally declared Him to be the head over all things for the benefit of the Church (Ephesians 1:22-23). The Church is His body; you’re seated with Him in the place of authority. That’s how high you are. Think highly of yourself, because you’re chosen, royal and peculiar. You’re one of a kind!
