Spiritual Identity, Jan. 29-Feb. 4

1 Corinthians 1:1-17

Message Outline

Embrace your spiritual identity in Jesus Christ
You are…

  • Called to be holy in Christ Jesus
  • Ones who share the name of the Lord Jesus Christ
  • Given grace by God in Christ Jesus
  • Rich in all spiritual gifts in Christ
  • Kept secure for Jesus’ return
  • Called into fellowship with Jesus Christ the Lord

So avoid human divisions and pursue unity in Jesus
Because…

  • Your identity is not in a human person
  • Your identity is in Christ his cross, name and gospel
