As Christians we all know of Adam and Eve’s fall into sin, and how it affected all of mankind.
We also know of Jesus Christ, His life sacrificed and the salvation it provided all mankind.
Before Christ became our personal Savior we lived a life full of sin. Selfishness, pride, greed, lying, etc.
Following our acceptance of the gift of salvation through Christ, we are made new in Him. Our lives have new meaning, a new focus and we know ultimately where we’re headed ~ heaven!
Yet, along the way Satan, who started first with Adam and Eve, now is after each of us. Some of his favorite darts to throw at us are our past mistakes. If we’re not careful in keeping our eyes on Christ and our hearts grounded in His word we will stumble.
As born again Christians, we’ve been forgiven all our past sins have been washed clean, but Satan is the great deceiver and will still try to use them against us.
Does this sound familiar? Is this what your life is like?
In Dr. Dean Hackett’s book, “Discovering True Identity: A Believer’s Position In Christ (Freedom Series)“ he delves into several topics such as; life as a Christian, how sin began, why Christ came, the freedom we have in Christ, and how we can live in this freedom!
Three things that really spoke to my heart were…..
1. The salvation message is presented within the pages.
2. Jesus’ sufferings are compared to things we often face on earth.
(As Christians we “know” that Jesus was tempted as we are, but I loved how it was presented for us to identify with through our common life situations and it covers the healing Jesus’ sufferings provides for each difficulty discussed.)
3. The passion for discipleship and ministry.
These two truly go hand in hand. We must teach and train before we can go forth and minister.
