I cannot live life to
the fullest independent of God.
I choose life!
For those who
are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but
those who are according to the Spirit, the things according to the Spirit. For
the mind set on flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and
peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile to God; for it does not
subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those
who are in the flesh cannot please God.
I am free of guilt
I am given mercy and grace for my mistakes.
is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit
of life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could
not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the
likeness of sinful flesh as an an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the
flesh, so that the requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who do not
walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
Sin is no longer my
I want to do what is right in my Fathers eyes.
Therefore do not
let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, and do not go on
presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness;
but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as
instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not be your master over you,
for you are not under law but under grace.
I am dying to serving
I am one with Christ.
I am a saint of God
What shall we
say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? May it never
be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it? Or do you not know that all
of us have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death?
Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as
Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too
might walk in the newness of life.
I am more than
able because I am made complete in Christ.
See to it
that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception,
according to the traditions of men, according to the elementary principles
of this world, rather than according to Christ. For in Him all the fullness
of Deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete, and
He is the head over all rule and authority;
And in Him
you were also circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in the
removal of the body of flesh by the
circumcision of Christ; having been buried with Him in baptism, in which
you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised
Him from the dead.
I am God’s
saved only by His grace,
not by my works.
But God, being
rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we
were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace
you have been saved), and raised up with Him in the heavenly places in Christ
Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His
grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
God is replacing my
worldly virtues with His character.
Corinthians 3:15-18 (NASB)
But to this day
whenever Moses is read, a veil lies over their heart; but whenever a person
turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and
wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
My chains of bondage
are broken. I am no longer a slave.
I have been set free
to be who God made me to be.
So Jesus was
saying to those Jews who had believed Him,"If
you continue in my Word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will
know the truth, and the truth will set you free."They answered
Him, "We are Abraham’s descendants and have never yet been enslaved to
anyone; how is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”
them,"Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone
who commits sin is the slave of sin.
I share the DNA of
Jesus. I am now of royal descent, a prince and heir.
Romans 8:14-17 (NASB)
“For all who are being led by the
Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. For you have not received a spirit of
slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption by
which we cry out, ‘Abba! Father!’ The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit
that we are children of God, and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and
fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be
I have been chosen
and I belong to my God.
Thessalonians 1:4-5 (NLT)“We know that
God loves you, dear brothers and sisters, and that He chose you to be His own
people. For when we brought you the Good News, it was not only with words but
also with power, for the Holy Spirit gave you full assurance that what we said
was true. And you know that the way we lived among you was further proof of the
truth of our message.”
Thessalonians 3:3-5 (NLT)“But the Lord is
faithful; He will make you strong and guard you from the evil one.
