When we enter into a relationship with Jesus, our identity is forever changed.
A new identity is born in place of the old one. This is the “new creation” Paul talks about in 2 Corinthians 5. This new identity is one that finds its definition and purpose in Christ.
Jesus had lots to say about our identity in Christ, and for the month of February in ReFuel, we’ll be studying His words. We’re going to take a close look at several snapshots of what our identity in Christ looks like. We will be reminded that Jesus defines greatness differently than the world; we’ll learn that their true purpose is found in remaining in Christ; and we’ll see that Jesus wants to use them to reach the lost.
Here’s a few ways we can help each other begin to grasp what our new identity in Christ means for our lives:
Pray for each other as we walk through this Bible study.
Look for some of the verses that we discuss in the follow-up messages and work through them with your parents, your friends, or your leader.
Be open and honest with each other about our own questions we have about this concept.
Imagine what it would feel like to feel entirely secure, maybe for the first time, in who we are and in who we are becoming as we allow ourselves to be shaped and challenged by Jesus.
