YOU ARE INSTANTLY GOD'S ACCEPTED - ADOPTED CHILD, IF YOU ARE IN CHRIST JESUS

Jesus Did It!

By: Norm Rasmussen

 
Having a right relationship with God begins with settling once and for all the issue that God is your loving Father and you are His accepted, adopted child, in Christ. That's the foundational truth of your spiritual heritage. You are a child of God, you are created in His image, you have been declared righteous by Him because you trust that what Christ accomplished in His death and resurrection is applicable to you. As long as you believe that and walk accordingly, your daily experience of practical Christianity will result in growth. But when you forget who you are (your inherited position) in Christ, and try to produce in your daily experience the acceptance God has already extended to you, you'll struggle.

We don't serve God to gain His acceptance; we are INSTANTLY accepted in Christ when we make Him our Savior and Lord ... so we serve God with great privilege - not out of any obligation.

We don't follow Him in order to be loved; we are already loved because of our identity in Christ ... so we follow Him and make every effort to please Him even when we fall short, for His Spirit helps us to put our shortcomings behind us and press forward to meeting Him face to face one day.
 
That's why you are called to live by faith (Romans 1:16, 17). The essence of the victorious Christian life is believing what is already true about you. Do you have a choice? Of course! Satan will try to convince you that you are an unworthy, unacceptable, sin-sick person who will never amount to anything in God's eyes. Is that who you are? No, you are not! You are a saint whom God has declared righteous. Believing Satan's lie will lock you into a defeated, fruitless life. But believing God's truth about your identity will set you free.
 
Your perception of your identity makes such a big difference in your success at dealing with the challenges and conflicts of your life. It is imperative to your growth and maturity that you believe God's truth about who you are.
 
The Bible says, "See how great a love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God; and such we are" (1 John 3:1). Tragically, many believers are desperately trying to become something they already are, while others are living like something they aren't.

It's true: "Beloved, now we are children of God" (1 John 3:2).

A Special Message:  http://www.precious-testimonies.com/Exhortations/f-j/HelpingShareTheMessageOfTheCross.htm


Dear Reader - are you at peace with God?  If not, you can be.  Do you know what awaits you when you die?  You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain.  Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!).  Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God?  We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.

To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God.  What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one.  Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.


We truly thank each of you who forward these testimonials and ministry writings (and videos) to others to give them greater awareness.  Especially to prisoners! The part the Holy Spirit has you play is vital in helping win lost souls and encouraging and helping believers grow in their relationship with the Lord, and we can never thank you enough for your help on behalf of our Lord Jesus Christ.
