We are currently in a series about our Identity during our Sunday Gatherings. There are two parts to this series: (1) Who We Are in Jesus and (2) How we live as everyday disciples. This is foundational to who we are as Redemption City.
Jesus tells us in Matthew 28:19-20, "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I commanded you. And, lo, I will be with you always, even until the end of the age."
In baptism, we are identified with Jesus. We are baptized in the NAME of the Father, Son, and Spirit. What does this mean? It means that as disciples of Jesus we are family, servants, and missionaries. This is who we are. This is our gospel identity.
The more we understand who we are the more it will inform and shape how we live as everyday disciples. We want to see the normal things of everyday life through the lens of the gospel and begin living in light of who we are as disciples.
