Understanding Our Identification of Being in Christ Jesus
In today’s lesson, Bob gives an example of marriage and the identification we have when we are married vs that of being a single person. Many times people get married, and they still maintain the attitude of singleness in their head. They take the attitude of not considering the needs of the mate, and only worry about their own self.
How does this relate to being married to Jesus? Well, when we understand what Jesus did for the church, that He loves us perfectly, and that He serves us with love and grace in our time of need, then we likewise, when in a marriage also, we can serve one another in love when you have two people who are in Christ Jesus themselves. They have oneness in a marriage where both are in Christ Jesus.

Everyone in Christ Jesus He Calls Us His Brothers and Sisters!
We are continuing in our study of a Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ. Bob continues the teaching in sharing a key part of the understanding that not only did we receive a full inheritance as a child of God in Christ Jesus, but that Jesus also inherited us. Now, that is just amazing, the Love that God has for us, to call us sons and daughters of God. We who are in Christ Jesus, are the brothers and sisters of Jesus himself. We are part of His family, and He inherited us!
Hebrews 2:11 11 Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters.

God Has Made You Holy (Set Apart) Forever in the Sight of God in Christ Jesus
The original words of Scripture such as (sanctified and holy) are important to understand. If our understanding of the words written in the Scriptures are wrong, we will have a wrong understanding of God. God made us holy. He set us apart for all those in Christ Jesus. You can’t make yourself holy anymore than you could redeem yourself. God is the one who did it all for you. He set you apart for His purpose. Now rejoice in that. Thank God for that. Be who you are, set apart. Quit calling God a liar by continually asking for what He has already done, and instead rejoice in all aspects of your new Identity in Christ Jesus. Thank God for who He has made you to be!
Hebrews 10:14 14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

Do them yourself or share your time with others, as a leader, in a small group home Bible study.

Perfect Love Drives Out All Fear
Listen in as Bob shares the truth from the word of God. Before a person can go on to deeper spiritual truths, a person needs to understand that God has made us perfect in His sight for anyone in Christ Jesus. We need to rest in that truth and be transformed by the renewing of our minds.
Just as a person’s physical growth is based on proper diet and exercise, so is the Christians’s spiritual growth dependent on regular feeding upon the word of God and application of its principles. With more false teaching, shifting opinions and general confusion in the world than ever before, Christians need a solid foundation upon which to base their beliefs and build their lives. The word of God declares that Jesus Christ is that foundation of truth. With that in mind, let’s now take A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ.
