Saved In Christ
We are all children of God if we receive God into our lives, we have a right to become his children, Mankind is fallen, separated from its true identity. We have the mind of Christ, and we are made in his image. If we believe in his name and except faith. Jesus will open his arms wide, and begin a beautiful process of change within us with the help of The Holy Spirit.
We will be born again, shedding our old body for a new model, walking in the spirit and not in the flesh. This is the pathway into the Kingdom of God, to have everlasting life. We all need to be in the light and remove ourselves from the shadow of darkness.
3 There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”
5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
10 Jesus answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things? 11Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness. 12 If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? 13 No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so, must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned, but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practising, evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
We become a new creation, having taken Christ inside us. As Jesus washed away our sins through his blood on the Cross, we are also washed new.
2 Corinthians 5:17
We are accepted by God, by his wonderful grace. Grace is a free gift contrary to human nature, which pride says we can do everything ourselves. Remember Jesus gives us life and the power to make choices, we need to make the right one.
He gives us the wonderful free gift of eternal life, to dine at his table. There will be a great celebration in heaven, with food and singing. Living in the spirit produces unique characteristics deep down in our personality.
How wonderful will it be for us to be finally reconciled with our Father, who has done, and given us so much that we take for granted?
Peace of the mind will help us with many problems in everyday life. Trust in God and forget all worries which can lead to depression, anxiety and worse. Having been born again I have had not one nightmare since and sleep soundly under God’s protection.
We are justified by faith, being made righteous. How wonderful is this God declares a sinner to be righteous? Because we put our trust and love in Jesus Christ, then having peace with God and Jesus but ultimately our inner selfs.
5 “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
We are a citizen of heaven. We legally belong to God’s country or Kingdom and he vows to protect us. Finally, we shed the kingdom of Satan. Satan controls this world and enslaves us. But when born again we are born into the kingdom of heaven, becoming new creatures.
We are a co-heir with Jesus Christ. The wonderful verse we are adopted into a Royal bloodline, having an equal share with him as sons and daughters of the living all-powerful God. How beautiful it will be to shed our outer garments and be made pure and transcendent like him!
We have passed death into life. All believers have already passed from death to life! Before faith, we are all spiritually dead. Gaining Jesus Christ we are given the greatest gift eternal life.
1 John 3:14
The Holy Spirit dwells in you. Our bodies are like an outer court, but the inner is where The Holy Spirit dwells in our Spirit. The Holy of holies is inside us, and the blood of Christ cleanses us daily. Remember The Holy Spirit is God’s helper and comforter, and always guides us back to Jesus.
2 Timothy 1:14
You are forgiven of all sins. But must remember all sins are forgivable but not if you blaspheme The Holy Spirit if you do this you cut off all contact with God. The Holy Spirit is our only way to find Jesus and find God. We are separated if we cut off the only way back to the Lord then God thinks we are no better than Satan.
We are adopted into the Royal family of God. What a privilege this is as it’s not given to all mankind! Who have turned their back on the Lord? This is the desire of God to appoint his sons into the family that have been made into the image of Christ.
Our name is written in the beautiful book of life. This speaks volumes, we will not be cast out into the lakes of fire! Who wants to be blotted out of the book of the living as it quotes in Psalm 68:29
We receive the righteousness of Christ. Our heavenly Father is perfect so must we be. We can never be perfect on earth through sin. We can only meet God’s standards when we shed our polluted garments and have full obedience in the law of God.
22 “Even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference.”
We are baptised into the body of Christ. The body is the Church of Christ, coming together with unity and faith and the full understanding of the Son of God, to be the rod or measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:13
We are a friend of God no longer his enemy. God never wanted to separate us from himself, he has always been our friend and loves us all. But if we can’t follow his laws and turn our backs on what he created in his image then what do we expect! He gave us free will to love him not to desire the material world and close the door when he comes knocking!
We have an inheritance in heaven waiting for us. When he makes everything new we will not have Facebook, X-box and T.V to waste our precious time. Stop waiting to receive your inheritance, we also have inheritance now on earth. Christ has left us with his protection, deliverance, prosperity, restoration and provision until we get to heaven! We get a taste of things to come when we receive the fruits of The Holy Spirits and gifts. We need to fully believe!
We are sealed by The Holy Spirit until the final day of redemption by the Lord. This means we are secure in his love and power. Sealed means guaranteed and is ultimately God’s stamp and trademark of approval. Redemption in receiving our glorified bodies, resurrected, changed and glorified as new spiritual beings.
