(Galatians 2:19-20 NLT) ….. My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
√ What WAS is no longer.
√ What IS comes from the One who won’t REMEMBER what was. (not can’t but won’t)
(Romans 1:17 NLT) This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.”
(Hebrew 8:12 NLT) And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins.
√ You have full COVERAGE.
(Romans 8:15-16 NLT) So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when He adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.
(Ephesians 1:5, 13, 14 NLT) God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure… And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago. … The Spirit is God’s guarantee.
√ No introductions necessary, He has caller I.D.
(Hebrews 13:15 NLT) Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name.
(1 Thessalonians 5:17 NLT) Never stop praying.
√ You can’t change Him, He changes you.
(Acts 17:28-29 NLT) For in him we live and move and exist. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring. And since this is true, we shouldn’t think of God as an idol designed by craftsmen from gold or silver or stone.
(Hebrews 13:8 NLT) Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
(Romans 3:24-28 NLT) Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins….. declares sinners to be right in his sight when they believe in Jesus. …. Can we boast, then, that we have done anything to be accepted by God? … So we are made right with God through faith and not by obeying the law.
√ Your identity is not earned, it’s DECLARED.
