        YOUR NEW LIFE IN CHRIST

The Church is filled with Christ, and Christ fills everything in every way

John 17:14&16  Jesus:  “…they don’t belong to the world,   just as I don’t belong to the world.”

And if we don’t belong to this world,   then where do we belong?  

Phil 3:20 (niv) our citizenship is in heaven.     (ncv) “our homeland is in heaven”

Phil 2:5 “Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.”     6-8  “he humbled himself”  (ncv) “In your lives you must think and act like Christ Jesus”

Eph 4:21-24 “…so you were taught the truth that is in Jesus.” 22 “You were taught to leave your old self…  23 “You were taught to be made new in your hearts, 24  to become a new person.  That new person is made to be like God     (remember Paul’s attitude  Gal 2:20)        Eph 1:23

Colossians 3:1 Since you were raised from the dead with Christ,   aim at what is in heaven…  2 Think only about the things in heaven, not the things on earth.  3-4 ..your new life is kept with Christ in God.   Christ is your life……  5-6 So put all evil things out of your life:    These things make  God angry.  8-9 But now also put these things out of your life: 10 You have begun to live the new life, … This new life brings you the true knowledge of God.  11 …Christ is in all believers,    and Christ is all that is important.  12  God has chosen you... loves you…so you should clothe yourselves with…. 14   Love is what holds you all together in perfect unity. 15  “….you were all called together in one body to have peace.  Always be thankful.” 16  Let the teaching of Christ live in you richly.     17  ..in all you do give thanks to God the Father through Jesus.

Remember:

John 17:3 Jesus said  “this is eternal life”   You must know God and know Jesus.

1 John 2:1-6  “Anyone who says, “I know God,” but does not obey God’s commands is a liar, and  the truth is not in that person”     “Whoever says that he lives in God must live as Jesus lived.”

Eph 4:13b “We must become like a mature person,  growing until we become like Christ….
