  8. 8. Your Identity in Christ Christ in you, the Hope of Glory
  9. 9. Galatians 5 (in The Message) 1 Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you. 2 I am emphatic about this. The moment any one of you submits to circumcision or any other rule-keeping system, at that same moment Christ’s hard-won gift of freedom is squandered. I repeat my warning 4 I suspect you would never intend this, but this is what happens. When you attempt to live by your own religious plans and projects, you are cut off from Christ, you fall out of grace. 13 It is absolutely clear that God has called you to a free life. 16 My counsel is this: Live freely, animated and motivated by God’s Spirit. 25- 26 Since this is the kind of life we have chosen, the life of the Spirit, let us make sure that we do not just hold it as an idea in our heads or a sentiment in our hearts, but work out its implications in every detail of our lives. That means we will not compare ourselves with each other as if one of us were better and another worse. We have far more interesting things to do with our lives. Each of us is an original.
  10. 10. The Divine Exchange
  11. 11. Fear Faith Anger Acceptance SIN Rejection Restoration
  12. 12. The Divine Exchange Renounce/Give up…  FEAR  ANGER  REJECTION Receive/take on…  FAITH  ACCEPTANCE  RESTORATION
  13. 13. 2 Corinthians 3 12Therefore,since we have such a hope, we are very bold. We are not like Moses with his veil. 17-18 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we, who will unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness (identity) with ever- increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
  14. 14. Freedom Reigns Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. Lift your eyes to heaven there is freedom. (Lift your eyes) Lift your eyes to heaven there is freedom. Freedom reigns in this place, showers of Mercy and Grace. Falling on every face, there is freedom. If you’re tired and thirsty, there is freedom. If you’re tired and thirsty, there is freedom. Give your all to Jesus (Give your all) There is freedom. (ohh) Give your all to Jesus, there is freedom
