Who I am in Christ

Built on a Rock
Pastor Walt Moser, First Baptist Church, Luverne

When we believe in Jesus Christ as the only way for our salvation, the Bible promises us that we are …
… a child of God. (John 1:12)
… a friend of Jesus Christ. (John 15:15)
… justified in Christ. (Romans 5:1)
… bought with a price and we belong to God. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
… redeemed and forgiven of all our sin. (Colossians 1:13-14)
… complete in Christ. (Colossians 2:9-10
… given direct access to the throne of grace through Jesus Christ. (Hebrews 4:14-16)
… free from condemnation. (Romans 8:1-2)
… citizens of heaven. (Philippians 3:20)
… free from a spirit of fear and given power, love and a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)
… chosen and appointed to bear fruit. (John 15:16)
… ministers of reconciliation for God. (2 Corinthians 5:17-21)
… the very workmanship of God. (Ephesians 2:10)
… able to approach God with freedom and confidence. (Ephesians 3:12)
… able to do all things through Christ, who strengthens us. (Philippians 4:13)
… are a chosen people, a royal priesthood and God’s special possession. (1 Peter 2:9)
… loved by God. (Romans 5:8)
… a brand-new creation. The old is gone.  We are made new in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
… precious and honored in God’s sight. (Isaiah 43:4)
… promised eternality with God. (John 14:1-6)
… uniquely gifted for the glory of God. (1 Peter 4:10)
… blessed. (Ephesians 1:3)
There are days when life is hard, but when we stop and remember the hope we have because of Jesus we can continue knowing we are loved. Our hope begins when we understand Jesus came to reconcile us to God. Because of our sin Jesus died, was buried, and rose again and, in doing so, extends the gift of salvation to all believe in him.
When life is bad or good, remember who you are in Jesus Christ.
