Have you ever really asked “Who am I?” In Christ Jesus you are loved, forgiven, chosen, a new creation, not condemned, more than a conqueror, God’s workmanship, a work in progress, provided for, and victorious. You are who God says you are and you are unique, a friend of God who created you for a purpose and in Christ you have an identity.
The New Covenant
Covenant. It’s how God relates to man. There was an old covenant, as described in the Old Testament, and we should learn about it to know more about who God is. It was holy and good. Unfortunately, man was unfaithful to his side of the covenant. But God, out of mercy and love for us, has initiated a new covenant, and He has replaced the old covenant with the new. It is this new covenant that we refer to as the Good News; the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is described to us in the New Testament, and God has invited each one of us to accept and commit to His new covenant. When we do, He promises cleansing from our sins, and the blessing of new life. One that will last for eternity. Be encouraged as we reflect on the good news of God’s new covenant.
