WHAT DOES GOD DO WHEN HE SAVES YOU?

JUSTIFICATION

(Victory Over the Darkness, by Neil Anderson)

1.God gives you a new I.D.  You have a new background.  Your past is gone.  God puts you “in Christ”.  You are no longer “in Adam”.  2 Cor. 5:17

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

2. Your old self was crucified with Jesus.  You are no longer a slave to sin. 

Romans 6:6

6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.

3.God calls you “saint”, not “sinner”.  Christians are not “sinners saved by grace”. 

Ephesians 1:1; Greeting

Philippians 1:1; Greeting

 1Paul and Timothy, bondservants of Jesus Christ,To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, with the bishops[a] and deacons:

4. Jesus set you free from bondage to Satan.  John 8:36 36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

5. You passed out of death into life.  John 5:24 24 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.

6. You are a child of God.  John 1:12 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:

7. You have been raised up with Jesus and seated in Jesus in heaven. 

 Ephesians 2:6 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

8. You have been sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.  Ephesians 1:13 13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise,

9. God’s power is in you.  

Ephesians 1:19-20;  19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,

Ephesians 3:20 20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,

10. You have bold, confident access to the Father thru faith in Jesus. 

Ephesians 3:12 12 in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him.

11. Your sins are forgiven.  Colossians 2:13 13And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,

12. You have a cleaned conscience.  Hebrews 9:14 14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

13. You belong to Jesus.  1 Corinthians 15:22 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.

14. You have every spiritual blessing in Jesus.  Colossians 3:1 Not Carnality but Christ

 1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.

15. You know for sure you will go to heaven.  Hebrews 6:19 19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil,

16. God will cause you to want to and be able to obey Him.  Philippians 2:13 13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.
