4 Ways to Identify New Covenant Disciples of Christ

4 Ways to Identify New Covenant Disciples of Christ

In the Old Covenant, Yah’s people were identified by the circumcision of their men’s private parts.

In the New Covenant, we are identified by the circumcision of our hearts.

Here are the 4 ways to identify New Covenant disciples of Jesus Christ:

1. They have Faith Working By Love

Galatians 5:6
For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

They are known by their faith, hope, and love. They do works of sacrificial love and believe in the power of the love of Jesus to change their world.

2. They are a New Creation

Galatians 6:15
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

They are born again and baptized in water, to become a new Creation in Christ (Romans 6:4). They don’t think, speak, or do the things they used to think, speak, and do. There has also been a break up with their past self and past sins through repentance.

3. Christ is their All

Colossians 3:11
Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

They are not ashamed of who God made them, but their identity, their zeal and their confidence is not defined by their physical status, life situation, or ethnic heritage. Christ is their everything, and Christ is the common denominator of their faith. They identify with Christ more than all.

4. They Keep the Commandments of God

1 Corinthians 7:19
Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.

They know that the Father and the Son are One, so they keep the Commandments of God with the faith of Jesus. They reverence and protect the 10 Commandments, which is the testimony (Revelation 11:19) and covenant (Deuteronomy 4:13) of the Father.
