Week 3 - Overcoming Labels - 03/18/18

Series Synopsis:
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 shameis 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.

THE LONGER WE CARRY A LABEL, THE LESS IT DESCRIBES OUR PAST AND MORE IT DETERMINES OUR FUTURE! #Shameless

Romans 1:4-8 NLT
4 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. 5 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. 6 So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. 7 He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. 8 He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.

A LABEL MAY DESCRIBE YOU, BUT YOUR IDENTITY IN CHRIST DEFINES YOU! #Shameless
