Pursuing Excellence message 6
Text: 1 John 3:1-3
Last week we saw what Ephesians 1 has to say about our position in Christ; accepted, forgiven, chosen, predestined and adopted. Nothing in heaven or on earth can, or ever will, shake that relationship we now enjoy. Our salvation is secure and God is faithful to His promise from Jeremiah to remember our sins no more. We have been born again, and our identity is now in Christ. If anyone is in Christ, they are a new creation. This is how we live life and approach our challenges; totally accepted by our Heavenly Father, empowered by His Spirit, co-heirs with Jesus Christ, and citizens of heaven.
