Your Identity Comes From the Identification


Only those who are genuinely aligned with Jesus will enter God's Kingdom.


People complicate salvation, but at its core, it comes through forging a covenantal relationship with the Son of God. This involves rooting your entire existence to Jesus' life, death, and resurrection. Salvation is not about religious rituals or moral achievements but about fully embracing and identifying with Jesus.


In one transformative act of solidarity, Jesus became our substitute. By God's grace, we are credited with his righteous deeds. What is in Him is now in us. This profound exchange means that the Lord's purity, holiness, and righteousness are attributed to us.


Our old selves, burdened by sinful tendencies, were crucified with Christ. This crucifixion represents the death of our former ways of thinking and behaving, which were driven by selfish and worldly desires. We have now renounced these old principles and actions. Sin's dominion over us is broken, liberating us from its power.


Through Jesus, believers are freed from old habits and attitudes. We are no longer slaves to sin but are transformed into a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17).


Ultimately, a healthy identity and purpose are found only by identifying with Jesus. Our sense of self-worth, direction, and fulfillment comes from our relationship with Him. By aligning our lives with Jesus, we discover true meaning and purpose.
