Week 2 - Day 4 The Truth of who God says I am...
There is a list of scriptures in the book and in the guide that define who we are as a child of God. In the book there is only a short phrase and I wanted to see the entire verse so that is all I will do today is provide the entire verse for each one. Spend some time meditating over these verses so you can begin to grasp that you are indeed "made for more"!!!
the forgiven child of God.
Romans 3:24 Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.
the set-free child of God.
Romans 8: 1-2 So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.
the accepted child of God.
1Corinthians 1:2 I am writing to God's church in Corinth, to you who have been called by God to be his own holy people. He made you holy by means of Christ Jesus, just as he did for all people everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours.
the holy child of God.
1Corinthians 1:30 God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin.
the made-new child of God.
(ah-ha this is one of my first memory verses!) 2Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old is gone, the new has come!
the loved child of God.
Ephesians 1:4 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.
the close child of God.
Ephesians 2:13 But now you have been united with Christ Jesus. Once you were far away from God, but now you have been brought near to him through the blood of Christ.
the confident child of God.
Ephesians 3:12 Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God's presence.
the victorious child of God
Romans 8:37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
