4|22|2022 At the Core of Who We Are

<<First Name>>
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! - 2 Corinthians 5:17

The core of our faith isn’t just a doctrinal statement; it is a person - a risen savior, the one who calls us back to life.  Like the women in the Easter story, our relationship with Jesus transforms who we are.  The Apostle Paul doesn’t just talk about believing in Jesus, he uses the language of receiving, of accepting and of being in Christ.  In other words, we allow Christ to become a part of our life, and we yield our hearts to him.

As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith… - Colossians 2:6-7a

I love that image of being rooted in Christ.  We are to plant our lives in Jesus, allowing the roots of our life to grow deep into the person and the love of Jesus.  The roots don’t just anchor the plant to weather the storm; they draw nourishment from the soil so the plant can grow healthy and strong.  

At the core of who we are is a new identity we find in Christ, the one who has forgiven us our sin, canceled our debts, and given us freedom to live for God.  The Apostle Paul says the old is gone, a new creation has come.  Through Jesus we find a new identity and our place with God.

We hope you will join us this week as we continue our message series by diving into what is at the core of who we are.  

In Christ’s Service,

Pastor Gordon
