WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD
By Synthia Esther
Salvation in Jesus Christ provides us with assurance that we are a "new" creation, 1st Cor. 5:17, because of the righteousness of God, 2nd Cor. 5:21. We become God's child, Romans 8:16. A heir of God and co-heir with Christ, Romans 8:17. We are God's workmanship, Eph. 2:10. Chosen of God, a royal priesthood, part of a holy nation, belonging to God, 1st Peter 2:9.
As a child of God, we are justified, Romans 5:1. We are the salt of the earth, Matt. 5:13, the light of the world, Matt. 5:14. Because of Christ Jesus our Lord's sin redemption plan, bought on the cross of calvary with his shed blood we are made clean, John 15:3. We as Christians were chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world to be holy and without blame before Him, Eph. 1:4.
Chosen by God, John 15:16, we are a friend to Jesus, John 15:14-15. We have direct access to God through the Spirit, Eph. 2:18. We have been given the Holy Spirit as a pledge guaranteeing our inheritance to come, 2nd Cor. 1:21, 22; Eph. 113-14. We are a recipient of God's lavish grace, Eph. 1:7,8. We have the right to come boldly before the throne of God to find mercy and grace in time of need, Heb. 4:16.
We have been given exceedingly great and precious promises by God by which we are a partaker of God's divine nature, 2nd Peter 1:4. We have been given a spirit of power, love and self-discipline, 2nd Tim. 1:7. We are firmly rooted in Christ and are now being built in Him, Col. 2:7. We, as Christians, have been saved and set apart according to God's doing, 2nd Tim. 1:9; Titus 3:5. All because He first loved us, John 3:16-17. We have been bought with a price, we are not our own. We belong to Christ.
