Who You Are in Christ Part 2

Who You Are in Christ Part 2

Who You Are in Christ Part 2 is a sermon teaching  us that when we accept Jesus into our lives, we become new creatures in Christ. Just like in the story of Zaccheaus, a publican who wanted to hear Jesus. People did not expect Jesus to go to the house of a publican who were thought of as traitors and equated sinners sinners,  but he did and Zaccheaus and others were saved.

Jesus came to seek those who were lost. Zaccheaus became a new creature in Christ. He had a new start. Accepting Christ means old things pass away and all things become new. That’s what it means to be in Christ, you have been forgiven and have a brand new start.

We are not perfect and will sin again. If any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ. If we ask for forgiveness, He says it’s been paid for and forgiven.

Who You Are in Christ Part 2 sermon starts with verses from II Corinthians 5:13-21:

13 For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.

14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:

15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.

16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

20 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.

21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Also verses from John 3:18:

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Romans 8:1:

1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

I Corinthians 1-2:

1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.

2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.

Luke 19:10:

10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
