Jesus Gives Sinners a New Identity
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners…” (1 Timothy 1:15).
What do you think of when you hear the term “sinner?”
Here is the cold hard truth. When you were a citizen of darkness, that’s what you were.
However, that name has a silver lining to it. While Jesus was on earth, he gravitated toward sinners. They were his mission.
Jesus saves sinners, and every time he does, he gives the sinner a new identity.
Identity is a huge issue in our culture today. People search long and hard to find an identity that validates their worth and gives them purpose. Yet, what the world offers on this front always falls short and leaves them wanting.
There is only one identity that can provide a person with the stability and confidence they need. This identity is God given and comes through new birth. “To all that received him” John wrote, “to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God – children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God” (John 1:12-13).
Think back to the day you were saved. On that day, your identity changed. It happened through new birth. You were born into Adam’s family as a sinner. You were born again into Jesus’ family as a child of God, fully forgiven and righteous in His sight.
The Basic Gospel Journey begins and ends with Jesus! In between is the life-changing truth of the New Covenant – that we are no longer bound by rules and regulations, living under a cloud of fear and guilt. In Christ, we begin a new life of freedom, faith and rest. This CD will encourage you in your journey with Jesus Christ. Walking with him is an adventure of a lifetime, one filled with the riches of His grace and the fullness of His life.
