Authentic Christianity Sermon Series Authentic Gospel - II (Romans 13:11-14 & Gal. 5:16-25)
We were once under sin, law, and death--helpless and hopeless. But ONLY by grace through faith in Jesus Christ--because of what HE has done... we have been justified, reconciled, made righteous, holy, united with Jesus, heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, and BELOVED CHILDREN of GOD--people so loved by God that nothing or no one can separate us from His love. (all from the earlier chapters of Romans.) Let this REALITY of being made united with Christ, soak into your mind and heart.
You were not barely forgiven and saved from wrath, but you are now NEW CREATION and a SAINT. CLOTHE yourselves with this reality of being IN CHRIST, every morning and throughout the day.
Don't live by law and self-effort, thinking that somehow your performances will gain His approval. TODAY... RIGHT NOW... YOU ARE ACCEPTED, FORGIVEN, and LOVED by Father God, ONLY because of Christ's finished work on the cross. This is the Gospel of Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
ENJOY JESUS. WORSHIP and ADORE JESUS. Oh, how sweet the name of Jesus!!!
I am so FREEEEEE to live in and through and for Him.
Maybe you've messed up in sin in the last couple days already... my friend, there is now NO CONDEMNATION for those who are in Christ Jesus. So get up, and sin no more!!! Do you KNOW who you are??? You have been made into a pretty amazing child of God, so go live like it. Let His loving kindness bring us to true "repentance."
