"...a few encouraging truths:"

#1 Post by goghtherefore » 1 month ago

Here are just a few encouraging truths:

1. God has declared me not guilty because Christ has freed me and taken away my sins.

"For all have sinned; all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet now God in his gracious kindness declares us not guilty. He has done this through Christ Jesus, who has freed us by taking away our sins." Romans 3:23-24

2. I am a new person in Christ. My old life is gone.

"What this means is that those who become Christians become new persons. They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life has begun!" 2 Corinthians 5:17

3. Christ lives in me, and my trust is in the One who loved and sacrificed for me.

"I myself no longer live, but Christ lives in me. So I live my life in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." Galatians 2:20

4. Christ calls me His own and gives me the Holy Spirit.

"And now you also have heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago." Ephesians 1:13

5. God welcomes me into His presence because my faith is in Christ.

"Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come fearlessly into God’s presence, assured of his glad welcome." Ephesians 3:12

Hi Goghtherefore,

Such simple truths that really need no explaining. Affiliation background with groups such as the Jehovah's Witnesses can really hamper one's ability to believe and receive such truths that accompany Jesus Christ as you posted with #4.
