The Power of Identity

In Romans 8, God's word assures those of us who believe in Jesus Christ that there is now no condemnation. In today's message, Pastor John explores the analogies used in the first four verses of this chapter: once slaves to sin, we are now free. Once indebted and stained by sin, the sacrifice has been made on our behalf. Once condemned by sin, all charges against us have been cleared, and God sees us with the righteousness of Christ. This is our identity in Jesus.

Where do you find your identity? It can be tempting to find our identity in our career, our relationships, or our hobbies. In Romans 8, we learn that when we have a relationship with Jesus and are indwelt with the Holy Spirit, we have a new identity. We are no longer under condemnation. We are adopted into God's family as his children. We have a promised inheritance. We have a new purpose. And we have a new power, help through the Holy Spirit to live a life of victory and experience God's comfort in the midst of difficult times. No matter what we face in life, we can have confidence that we serve a God who loves us and works all things together for the good of those who love him.
