Who You Are in Christ (part 2)

You are a minister of reconciliation for God.
"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  And all things are of God, who has reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation.  To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them: and has committed unto us the word of reconciliation.  Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.  For he has made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him."
2 Corinthians 5:17-21
You are God's co-worker.
"For we are laborers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building."

You can be confident that the good works God began in you will be perfected.

You have been justified.
"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ."

You can approach God with freedom and confidence.
"In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him."
Ephesians 3:12
"For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.  Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."
Hebrews 4:15, 16
You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.
"I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me."
Philippians 4:13
You cannot be separated from the love of God.
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?  shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 8:35-39
You belong to God - He is your Father.
And you can take that to the bank!!
