Do you know who you are?

But he turned and rebuked them and said 'Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. Luke 9:55
Jesus was the one rebuking his disciples here, why? They wanted to call down fire like Elias to consume some people who they said was casting out devils in Jesus name yet those people were not one of the disciples.
Jesus had to rebuke them that he didn't come to destroy lives but to save then he further went to tell the disciples about the tremendous power dwelling in them they were not aware of for if they were they would be more careful.
My point here is believers don't really know or understand what power resides inside of them. They know they are washed in the blood, saved by grace but what about what the scriptures says in  Rom 8:11, 'But if the Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. That is powerful!
You are not just your physical body, you have power loaded in the inside of you.
Jesus rose from the dead in great power, that same power dwells in you, yes you! and this was why Jesus had to say to his disciples 'be careful to call down fire' because fire will fall.
Beloved, if you are a child of God, on the outside you might not look different from your next door neighbour but on the inside you are carrying tremendous power, you are a walking miracle. That is who you are!
