7 Important Truths Christians Must Remember

I saw this article at Melanie Redd Ministry of Hope and HAD to share it. It was exactly what I needed to read this morning, I am even going to write out the truths and Scriptures and hang them on my walls. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have, God bless you - J
1. You have been bought with a price.
I Corinthians 6:19-20 - What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
You are God’s. He chose to make you, pursue you, forgive you, redeem you, and adopt you as His own. He sent His Son to die so that he would be glorified with your new life. God loves you enough to make your body a temple of the Holy Spirit. God loves you enough to chase you and catch you. He loves you enough to send His Son to the cross. What does this mean, Christian? Your life has purpose, meaning, and value.
2. You are redeemed and forgiven of all sin.
I john 1:9 - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
All of the evil you have ever done – and in Scripture it tells us that everyone has done evil [Romans 3:10] – is washed away. It is gone. There is no need for shame. There is nothing you have done that Jesus did not redeem on the cross. What a gift! What does this mean, Christian? Confession is necessary, and forgiveness is certain.
3. You cannot be separated from God’s love.
Romans 8:31-39 - What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
If you are a Jesus-follower, then nothing you can ever do will separate you from God and His love. The Lord cherishes you, holds your tender heart, and calls you His child. Nothing can stop that. What does this mean, Christian? Run to the Lord with your struggles. He longs to hold you and love you.
4. You are God’s & the devil has no rule in your life.
Colossians 1:13-14 - Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
The devil loves to try and squirm his way into our lives. He likes to make us feel inferior, anxious, bitter, and rebellious. He likes to make us think that we can be our own little gods. But the truth is this: victory has already been claimed. Christ won. He defeated the monster of Satan who now has no dominion in your life. Tell him to back away, because in Jesus’ name there is no room for the devil. What does this mean, Christian? Claim Jesus when you feel the forces of evil. He will show up. After all, He already won the battle.
5. You are God’s workmanship.
Ephesians 2:10 - For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
God crafted you. God has given you abilities for His glory – so that you can work as unto the Lord. He cares about your successes, and He also cares about making His name known among the nations. He will use faithful servants to proclaim His truth. And that is you. You are His workmanship, created to work for God’s glory and purposes What does this mean, Christian? We can use our passions and skills to be Jesus in the world. Think of the gifts God has given you and use them.
6. You are complete in Jesus.
Colossians 2:9-10 - For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
Nothing defines you except for the blood and name of Jesus. If you’re searching for fulfillment in something other than the Lord, you’re looking in the wrong place, friend. Your job will not fulfill you. Your marriage will not fulfill you. Your children, your home, your money, your appearance – none of it will fulfill you. Do you want to know what will? Jesus. His truth. His love. His promises about your worth. And because of His death on the cross, you are made complete and whole. What does this mean, Christian? Your heart longs for Jesus. Fill it with Him and not the things of the world.
7. You have access to God through the Spirit.
Ephesians 2:18 - For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
You can make your requests known to the Lord, because you have the Holy Spirit inside of you. You’ve been given access to the God of the universe. Do you know what else? He hears. He loves you. He cares about the struggles, concerns, fears, and hardships you face. Cry out to Him. We’ve been given access through the Spirit. What does this mean, Christian? You are never alone. You are always heard. God deeply cares. Grab ahold of these truths and fight to believe them each and every day. You are so valued & so loved by the Creator of the world. Goodness, if I could sit across from you at a coffee shop sipping lattes, you would hear my passion – please believe these truths.
Fight to believe them.
Pray for deeper ability to believe them.
Trust what God says about you.
Run to Him daily.
You are worthy, redeemed, loved, protected, set apart, complete, and heard.
