Devotions for October 18, 2017


26 For you are all children[a] of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes.[b] 28 There is no longer Jew or Gentile,[c] slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children[d] of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God’s promise to Abraham belongs to you.


Through Jesus’ work on the cross we’ve been given new life. The new life Jesus has provided isn’t dependent on what we accomplish, what we do, or who we try to become, it’s dependent on His finished work on the cross.


Q: What does “new life” mean to you?

Q: How would your everyday activities be different if you truly lived out of the reality of new life as Paul describes it?

Q: How does your new identity in Christ change the way you interact with others?
