It’s time to celebrate your new life in Christ! Think about it: By accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you joined God’s family. You became one of His kids, and that adoption afforded you many privileges. Just look at what the Word has to say about your new life in Christ!
- You enjoy freedom, not condemnation! Romans 8:1-2: “So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.”
- You have been made right with God. 2 Corinthians 5:21: “For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.”
- Resurrection power is yours! Ephesians 1:19-23: “I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.”
- The Holy Spirit lives in you! Romans 8:11: “The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.”
- God has good plans for your life! Jeremiah 29:11: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord. ‘They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.’”
- God honors you! 1 Samuel 2:30: “I will honor those who honor me.”
- God lifts you out of every kind of lack! Psalm 113:6-8: “He stoops to look down on heaven and on earth. He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump. He sets them among princes, even the princes of his own people!”
- You are united with Jesus! Ephesians 2:6: “For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.”
Begin standing in faith on these scriptures. Read them. Memorize them. Ask the Lord to reveal their truth to you. Then thank Him for all the good things you now have access to as a result of your new life in Christ!
