Christ-followers, We are not merely forgiven of our sin; we are also filled with the benefits of his righteousness, holiness, and redemption. What He is, I am. My identity is no longer fixed by my birth, determined by my heritage, or spoiled by my sin, but is renewed, transformed, and reborn by my Savior’s blood.
Yes, I have a racial identification but more than that, I am a follower of Jesus. Yes, I have a family name, but more than that, I am Christ-follower. I have failed to be all that my God requires, but I am not my sin. I am a disciple of Jesus, washed in the blood of Christ and filled with its life through the grace of my Savior alone.
