You know, we could read our Bibles every day for 20 years and not get the simple fact that Sin is dead, we’re free from the curse, and those in Christ can choose to let His life reign in them completely. I grew up in the Southern Baptist Church and never heard about any of the truth of redemption, what Jesus’ life, death , and resurrection means to the believer who struggles with ongoing sin-y flesh issues, and that shame and guilt are yokes of slavery.
Instead of me writing an epic post I wanted to share a video I watched recently that is probably the best and most concise explanation of what IS a Christian along with some other tidbits. It’s almost 40 minutes, but it is well worth it. If you have trouble explaining Christianity to your friends who ask, here’s a nice place to point them (and it’s a nice presentation of the Gospel, too). And a refresher of who we are in Christ is always a good thing. This is not boring.
