MEMORIAL DAY
“Remember Who You Are”

Pastor Duane Cross | 05.24.15

“See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is memorialday2015what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him. Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is. And all who have this eager expectation will keep themselves pure, just as he is pure.” - I John 3:1-3 (NLT)

“And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, ‘Abba, Father.’” - Galatians 4:6 (NLT)

1) Embracing a new identity, you are his child!

“No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.” - Romans 8:37-38 (NLT)

2) You have a guaranteed destiny.

“Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is.” - I John 3:2 (NLT)

3) Entering into a highly motivated, thoroughly joyful kind of purity.

“And all who have this eager expectation will keep themselves pure, just as he is pure.” - I John 3:3 (NLT) “See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are!” - I John 3:1a (NLT)
