SALVATION CREATES IDENTITY
Jesus has won absolute victory! We are forgiven and freed from the enemy’s power of sin, sickness, lies and torment, so now we operate in the power of righteousness, healing, truth and joy! (Rom. 6:4; Rom. 8:1-4; Rom. 8:14-16; 2 Cor. 5:17; Gal. 2:20)
We are adopted as royalty into God’s family and commanded to help others be reconciled to God and come “home.” (John 1:12; Rom. 8:14-16; 2 Cor. 5:18-21)
We are simultaneously servants, children, and trusted friends of our Lord.
(Matt. 23:10-12; John 15:15; John 1:12)
We are new creations, not merely “sinners saved by grace,” but saints who have been given His righteousness. (2 Cor. 5:17; 2 Cor. 5:21; Rom. 1:17; Rom. 3:28; Rom. 8:29-30)
