We all live for something. We start life fully committed to pleasing ourselves. As we grow, that usually doesn't change much. Our focus can become more dispersed among areas that are important to us, such as relationships, careers, or goals. But the bottom line is almost always a desire to please ourselves. The quest for happiness is a universal journey.

However, we were not created to live for ourselves. We were designed by God, in His image, for His pleasure (Genesis 1:27; Colossians 1:16). Our lives are like a vacuum. Throughout history, mankind has attempted to fill that vacuum with everything except God. Nothing satisfies but God. Jesus said, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28).

Inclusions : Your New Identity in Christ

To be "in Christ" means we have accepted His sacrifice as payment for our own sin. Our slate is wiped cleaned of everything we've ever done. We received a new identity. We spend everyday for the rest of our lives conforming to the new person that God has created in us; our new regenerated person. Everyone wants a second chance in life. It can only truly be found in a life with Christ.

Who we are in Christ

  • a new creation; the old has gone
  • we are “partakers of the divine nature”
  • we are accepted in the beloved
  • we are regenerated
  • we are more than conquerors
  • we are alive with Christ
  • free from the law of sin and death
  • far from oppression, and live not in fear
  • born of God
  • joint-heirs with Christ
