Sunday School
Who We Are in Christ (Continued)

1 Peter 2:9 - But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people.  You are a kingdom of priests, God's hold nation, His very own possession.  This is so you can show others the goodness of god, for He called you out of the darkness into His wonderful light.

We are His chosen people.
Jeremiah said, "He's like fire shut up in my bones."

Jesus died for the "sin" of the world and rose so that we could have everlasting (eternal) life.
Romans 10:10-13 - For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.  As the Scriptures tell us, "Anyone who believes in Him will not be disappointed."  Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect.  They all have the same Lord, who generously gives His riches to all who ask for them.  For "Anyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."

Repent! Once that is achieved, confess your sins daily.
We have access to the Father through Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:2)

1 Samuel 16:13
2 Samuel 11:2

Subject: Saved But Not Satisfied

God's power in David was amazing yet he was not satisfied
David conquered nations through God yet he was not satisfied
God spoke to David through Samuel
God chastises but we resist

We have guilt
We fear being caught
Our failures are realized

Sin is a willful act against God
Resist the devil and he will flee
Sinning lessens our witnessing to God

We need to ask for restoration of "joy" in our salvation.

S-ane in its appeal.
