Your Story Part V: SANCTIFICATION
“Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God…” (John 1:12)
What does God promise to those who grab onto his hand?
Forgiveness: Immediately, God forgives all your sins, whatever they may be!
New Life: Immediately, God actually enters your life, enabling you to experience eternal, abundant life, in the present, just like God intended in the beginning of time.
New Community: Immediately, God makes you a member of a new community, God’s family throughout the world, known as the Church.
New Mission: Immediately, God gives you a new mission in life. This is the point in your life where God’s story intersects your own story. Just as you have been reconciled to God, God wants to use you to reconcile other people unto himself. This includes sharing God’s story with other people along with how your story is a part of it.
New Destination: After you die, you will go to experience eternal, abundant life in the presence of God forever.
KEY POINT #5:
When people believe in Jesus, they become children of God with a purpose.
