Romans 8:14-16

“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” II Corinthians 5:17 (NLT)
Pillar: As a follower of Jesus, my primary identity is whoI am IN CHRIST.

“Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness’…So God created man in His own image; He created him in the image of God;
He created them male and female.” Genesis 1:26-27 (CSB)

  •  I am created by God.
  •  I am created in the image of God.
  • I am created with singular uniqueness.

“From one man He has made every nationality to live over the whole earth and has determined their appointed times and the boundaries of where they live.” Acts 17:26 (CSB)

Through Faith in Christ, I am placed in a new family.

“For through faith you are all sons of God in Christ Jesus. For those of you who were baptized into Christ have been clothed with Christ. There is no Jew or Greek, slave or free, male and female; since you are all one in Christ Jesus.”  Galatians 3:26-28 (CSB)

“See what great love the Father has given us that we should be called God’s children—and we are!” I John 3:1 (CSB)

“But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.” John 1:12 (ESV)
