Who Am I... Really? Who Am I... Really? Presentation Transcript

  • Who Am I…Really? Scripture Ephesians 1:3-14
    • The person we think we are
    • The person others think we are
    • The person we really are
    • The person we think others think we are
    But who are we……….really??? WE ARE WHO GOD SAYS WE ARE. It seems like each one of us is four different persons
  • Before we were Christians God saw us as:
    • Guilty – James 2:10
    • Spiritually dead – Ephesians 2:1-2
    • Condemned – John 3:18
    God saw us as needing forgiveness, needing a new birth, needing reconciliation to make possible a restored relationship with Himself.
    • Separated from God – Ephesians 4:18
  • What does God think of me now? Ephesians 1:3-14
    • Blessed with every spiritual blessing (1:3)
    • Chosen before the creation of the world (1:4)
    • Holy and blameless (1:4)
    • Adopted as sons (1:5)
    • Redeemed (1:7)
    • Forgiven (1:7)
    • Given wisdom and understanding (1:8)
    • Shown the mystery of His will (1:9)
    • Sealed by the Spirit as a deposit guaranteeing an
    • inheritance (1:13,14)
    • God’s workmanship, created to do good works (2:10)
    Further in Ephesians we see more of who we are now and what we have in Christ:
    • A dwelling place for the Holy Spirit (2:22)
    • Brought near to God (2:13)
    • Fellow citizens with other Christians and members of God’s household (2:19)
  • God chose us – salvation began with God God rescued us – He bought us back; He forgave us God adopted us – as members of His family, with all the privileges and blessings
    • Live up to your position (4:1-3)
    • Use your spiritual gifts (4:11-16)
    • Put off the old life, put on the new life (4:17-32)
    • Be imitators of God (5:1-21)
    • Put on the armour of God (6:10-17)
    • Pray
  • 1 Peter 2:9,10 9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
