Sermons on Identity in Christ
The resurrection of Jesus shows the greatness of God's power toward us now in this life.
Believers are commanded to become in practice what we are in Christ: dead to sin and alive to God.
God lives in the soul of man by the indwelling of his Spirit.
God made us who we are to show the world who he is.
Without the Spirit, we are so rebellious against the Lord that we cannot recognize the truth and beauty of a crucified Christ.
When Paul says, put off the old person and put on the new person, he is not talking about an optional elective. This is the core curriculum in the school of Christ.
We need each other if we are going to escape the drunkening effects of the world and live as sober aliens.
We are freed from the burden of the law when we are given the power to fulfill it from within. And that happens when Christ is formed in us.
The essential mark of a Christian is not how far you have progressed in sanctification, but on what you are relying to get there.
