With the last post we’ve kicked off a series called “101 reasons to go wild with your untamed new lover and dump (the effects) of your outdated demanding husband.”
Why is the Gospel such outrageously Good News?
In short, it is the almost to-good-to-be-true news that Jesus Christ has truly done a PERFECT and COMPLETE job on the cross.
So good that:
- You are in perfect union with Him
- You are forgiven of all sin – past, present and even future sin.
- You are complete in Christ
- You are clean, holy, righteous and Christlike
Remember, this is all true about you because it is your spirit that determines your true identity! Your spirit is completely changed at new birth. You are a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17). You went through an extreme make over, indeed.
God is a Spirit being and you are a spirit being. He relates to your spirit man. Therefore, the Father sees you as being identical to Jesus!
As Jesus is SO are you (1 John 4:17)
You are truly a NEW creation!
Christ’s nature is reflected in our lifes as we renew our minds to who we are and moment by moment rely on the Spirit’s indwelling Presence to live His life through us.
