1 Peter 1:3-5 NIV
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.

I want the event that happened to become the way by which I live my life. 

Ephesians 2:6 NIV
And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus…

Series Synopsis: A Series on the Book of Romans
The enemy wants to shame us and take away our rights as sons and daughters of the King. When we realize who we are and to whom we belong, we recognize that shame is no more. We learn our life is pardoned and redeemed, and that the love of the King is unchanging.

Theme Verse: 
Romans 8:1-2 NLT - So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.

condemnation: the expression of very strong disapproval; censure; the action of condemning someone to a punishment; sentencing.

The most important question that we will answer today:
What does it take to be made right with God?

Romans 3:22 NLT
22 We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.

THE RESURRECTION POWER OF JESUS IS MEANT FOR YOU. #Easter #Shameless #RealResults

Romans 1:2-6 NLT
2 God promised this Good News long ago through his prophets in the holy Scriptures. 3 The Good News is about his Son. In his earthly life he was born into King David’s family line, 4 and he was shown to be the Son of God when he was raised from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit. He is Jesus Christ our Lord. 5 Through Christ, God has given us the privilege and authority as apostles to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them, so that they will believe and obey him, bringing glory to his name. 6 And you are included among those Gentiles who have been called to belong to Jesus Christ.

YOU ARE INCLUDED!

YOU BELONG. 

1 Corinthians 15:3b-4 NLT
Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. 4 He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.

Because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ…

1. We can be free and forgiven by Jesus' death. #Shameless
    (Isaiah 56:6-10, Romans 4:25)

    Romans 8:1 (God knows everything)

2. God loves us unconditionally. You are valuable.
    (John 3:16,17, 1 John 13:34-35)

3. Jesus defeated death so we don't have to fear it. (2 Peter 1:16, Acts 1:3, 1
    Corinthians 15:3-8) We can be certain of a future in heaven. (1 Peter 1:4, 1
    Corinthians 2:9, John 14:6,
    Romans 10:9)

4. We get to have God's spirit inside us. (Acts 1:8, Ephesians 1:19-20)

5. God has a greater purpose for our lives. (Mark 8:35, Acts 15:26, 2 Corinthians
    4:17-18, Philippians 1:21)

Mark 16:15-20 NLT
15 And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. 16 Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. 17 These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages.18 They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.” 19 When the Lord Jesus had finished talking with them, he was taken up into heaven and sat down in the place of honor at God’s right hand. 20 And the disciples went everywhere and preached, and the Lord worked through them, confirming what they said by many miraculous signs.

Romans 1:16-17 NLT
16 For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile.

17 This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.”
