2 Corinthians 5:16-19

Believing and accepting our true identity.

Living the Christian life is not about trying to imitate Christ.

We need to understand God's love and acceptance of us.

  • It's not about coming up with a better "self-image."
  • It's all about having proper "self-image."

In Christ we have total forgiveness.  Ephesians 1:7

In Christ we have been given His righteousness.  2 Corinthians 5:21

In Christ we have total acceptance.  Romans 15:7

In Christ we have become children of God.  John 1:12-13

In Christ we have total access to the throne of God's grace.  Ephesians 3:12; Hebrews 10:19

Christ died FOR us so He could live IN us.  Romans 6:23
