Stirring Up Each Other to Wear the

Truths of Salvation as My Helmet

 

In Justification we go from being accused and guilty before God to being righteous and with no record of wrongs!

1.    Romans 8:33-34 I have been justified and by Christ justifying me and because the record has been erased —I am free forever from condemnation. Say that aloud with me

2.    Ephesians 3:12 By Christ justifying me—I can always approach God with confidence. Say that aloud with me

3.    Hebrews 4:15-16 By Christ justifying me—I always have His grace and help. Say that aloud with me

 

In Regeneration we go from dead and decaying to alive and overflowing.

1.    Philippians 4:13 Because Jesus regenerated me—I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Say that aloud with me

2.    Colossians 2:10 Because Jesus regenerated me—I am complete in Christ. Say that aloud with me

3.    1 John 5:18 Because Jesus regenerated me—I am born of God and the evil one cannot touch me. Say that aloud with me

 

In Reconciliation we go from being an enemy at war with God to being His treasured friend!

We need to experience what the Scriptures often declare—God has ended His war against us in our sin by Christ's reconciling sacrifice and has established not a truce, He has made us His treasured friend.

1.    Ephesians 1:6 Because Jesus reconciled me—I am accepted In Christ Jesus. Say that aloud with me

2.    John 15:15 Because Jesus reconciled me—I am Christ's friend. Say that aloud with me

3.    2 Corinthians 5:17-20 Because Jesus reconciled me—I am Christ's ambassador of reconciliation.  Say that aloud with me
