Discover and activate all that is available to you through Jesus’ cross and resurrection. There are many gifts within the gift of salvation. Here are three truths:
We get a new Father.
John 1:12-13 explains what happens when a person believes in Jesus: “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.” When a person believes in Jesus, he or she is born again and becomes part of God’s family—a child of God. He or she has a new life that includes eternity with God in heaven.
We get a new nature and identity change. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”
We undergo a radical internal change. Our old self has been crucified with Christ, and we have a brand-new self, which is created in righteousness and holiness. You have a new nature. Identity – We are created in His image. We have the spiritual DNA of God.
We get a new family. We are united with Christ and joined to the body of Christ. Not only do we have union with the triune God, but we are also united with every other believer. (Romans 12:5)

DECLARE these to remind yourself of what you have been given through salvation:
I have been delivered from the power of darkness and translated into the Kingdom of His dear Son. I have been born again by the incorruptible seed of God’s Word. I have been given all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of God and Jesus His Son.
I am God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus. My spirit is alive to God and I have a new nature. I am strengthened with all might according to His glorious power. I have the Greater One living within me and have authority over the devil.
The Spirit of Truth abides in me. He is my Helper, Counselor, Teacher, He shows me things to come and guides me into all truth. I hear God’s voice and follow Him. I trust in the Lord with all my heart and will not lean on my own understanding. In all my ways I acknowledge Him and He directs my path. I am not wise in my own eyes.
Jesus is made unto me wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption. I am filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
