  • 1. WHO AM I? WHAT AM I CALLED TO? What is my Identity “In Christ?”
  • 2. WHO AM I “IN CHRIST?” 2 Corinthians 5: 16 So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view…
  • 3. WHO AM I “IN CHRIST?” 2 Corinthians 5: 16 So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view… 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
  • 4. Ephesians 4: 17 So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. 18 They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. 19 Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more.
  • 5. Ephesians 4: 20 You, however, did not come to know Christ that way. 21 Surely you heard of him and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. 22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires;
  • 6. Ephesians 4: 23 To be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 And to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
  • 7. Romans 6 3 Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. 5 If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection. 6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with
  • 8. Galatians 2 20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
  • 9. Galatians 6 14 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
  • 10. Colossians 3 1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
  • 11. Colossians 3 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
  • 12. Colossians 3 4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
  • 13. Romans 7 15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me.
  • 14. Romans 7 18 I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I Me (Old Self) have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do Sin - this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
  • 15. Romans 7 Christ 21 So I find this law at Me (New work: When I want to do Self) good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner Inner Being being I delight in God's law;
  • 16. Romans 7 23 But I see another Me (Old Self) law at work in the members of my body, waging war against Sin the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members.
  • 17. Romans 7 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Old Man 25 Thanks be to God - through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, “The Body I myself in my of death” mind am a slave to God's law, Christ but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin. Romans 8 1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,
  • 18. The Old Man & New Man are still both called “ME” But from God’s perspective He knows Old we will one day be free Man from the body and delivered from the “old man” all together. He sees us as “In Christ” free from the sinful nature
