1) YOU ARE MADE IN GOD’S IMAGE
- You were CREATED from the PERFECT mold
- You were known BEFORE you were BORN
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
– Psalm 139:13-16
2) YOU ARE GOD’S CHILD
- You are a NEW CREATION (2 Corinthians 5:17, Romans 8:28-30, Ephesians 4:20-24)
- You are ADOPTED into God’s family (Ephesians 1:4-5)
- YOU are LOVED by God (Galatians 2:20, 1 John 4:16, Jeremiah 31:3)
“For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” – Zephaniah 3:17
3) YOU ARE GOD’S MASTERPIECE
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” – Ephesians 2:10
- You are not FINISHED (Philippians 1:6, 2:13,
Titus 3:5, Psalm 51:10-13, Ezekiel 36:26-27)

(Isaiah 64:8, Jeremiah 18:3-4)
