Nothing great comes without challenge and opposition! Our new life in Christ has an enemy who’s greatest fear is that we would become confident in our new identity. At moments of progress, we can be met with a push back. Knowing how to respond is critical, and Jesus has shown us the way.
In a culture that is filled with lies and deception we are on a search for the truth, the genuine and the authentic. In today's message, we explore what it means to 'reveal the real me' by looking at Jesus' words in John 10.
When we come to Christ we are reborn on the inside by the power of the Holy Spirit. Gods Spirit makes us alive to Him and we become a new person with a new nature. Like a seed in the ground, God gives us everything we need to live a life that looks like Him.
Every person on the planet longs for acceptance, to belong, to be accepted for who they are. When you are born again you never have to be alone again. God places you into His family and becomes your best friend. It's time to immerse ourselves in our new identity until it truly becomes who we believe we are.
So you’ve been given a clean slate. Where to from here? A new name, a new home, a new passport. Your past is erased. Now you must learn how to be the person you really are, from the only person who truly knows your new identity. Your most exhilarating days are ahead of you and all you have to do is fully embrace it. It's time to get your story straight because you have been reborn.
