2 1. A New IdentityWhen you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior you will not be the same.You no longer identify with who you were, but now God has given you a new identity.You are instantly brought into the family of God. You are adopted into His family never to be the same again.
3 2. A New AuthorityGod was his owner. He had no rights. He had voluntarily given up his rights to follow God.On the authority of the Word of God I can tell you that a true Christian is owned and operated by God.We are not our own, but we are God’s for Him to do with us as He pleases and sees fit.
4 3. A New ResponsibilityGod has given each and every one of us a spiritual gift, and it is our responsibility to use it for His kingdom.Once Jesus Christ is ruler of your life you will have a sense of indebtedness to Him, because of what He has done for you.You won’t do what you do because you feel like you have to, but rather because you know He deserves it.
