  • 00:00:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the importance of perspective and self-speak, or what one says to oneself about oneself, and the need to hit the reset button before thinking about ambitions for the new year. The speaker suggests that to create a structure and paradigm for how to live your life as a Christian, it is essential to remember some divine realities that form the structure of your own perspective on yourself. First on the list is to remember who owns you because God bought and redeemed you with his own blood. The speaker reminds the audience that as Christians, they are slaves owned by God and that their names were written in the Lamb's Book of Life.
  • 00:05:00 and all the people answered with one voice and said, "All the words which the Lord has spoken we will do!" Then Moses took the blood of calves and sprinkled it on the people and said, "Behold the blood of the covenant which the Lord has made with you in accordance with all these words." This is the context that Peter refers to when he talks about being sprinkled with the blood of Christ. Just as the people of Israel made an oath of obedience to God and were sprinkled with blood, so too must Christians renew their oath of obedience to Christ and be sprinkled with His blood. This is a joyful obedience that produces blessing and reward.
  • 00:10:00 In this section, a covenant is formed between God and the people of Israel in Exodus 24. They pledge to obey God's laws and offerings are made to Him with blood used to seal the covenant. Similarly, in our salvation through Christ, we make a covenant of obedience to Him by confessing Him as Lord. The blood of Christ symbolically splatters on us as we affirm this obedience. Without confessing Jesus as Lord and submitting to Him, one cannot be saved. It's important to regularly renew our covenant of obedience with the Lord, declaring ourselves as His slaves and committing to obedience to Him as our Master. This is why Jesus said that those who love Him will keep His commandments, even in the midst of struggles.
  • 00:15:00 In this section, the speaker emphasizes the importance of renewing one's covenant and oath on a constant basis, reminding ourselves who owns us, and remaining faithful to our biblical convictions. This means tying up all the loose ends of our life and strengthening our doctrine and convictions so that they become our affection.

Believers should strive to be like God and be holy, as they have a relationship with Him as their Father. The speaker encourages believers to recognize all sin as a violation of a relationship and to be obedient children of God.
  • 00:30:00 In this section of the transcript, the speaker emphasizes the importance of viewing every sin as a violation against God, which helps in dealing with sin.

He emphasizes that trials and persevering through them are a tremendous gift from God and that knowing our salvation is real and persevering through trials is more precious than anything else in the world.

Living with a clear conscience towards God aids in one's spiritual well-being, whereas guilt can negatively impact it.
