Know who you are in Christ using God’s handbook – the bible:
I am God’s child – John 1:12
I am Christ’s friend – John 15:15
I have been justified – Romans 5:1
I am united with the Lord and I am one spirit with Him – 1 Corinthians 6:17
I have been bought with a price. I belong to God – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
I am a member of Christ’s body – 1 Corinthians 12:27
I am a saint – Ephesians 1:1
I have been adopted as God’s child – Ephesians 1:5
I have direct access to God through the Holy spirit – Ephesians 2:18
I have been redeemed and forgiven for all my sins – Colossians 1:14
I am complete in Christ – Colossians 1:10
Knowing who you are in Christ is one of the most important things you can do; because when difficult times come – and they will – you need to know who you are to be able to stand. Its no different to knowing who you are in your family, your school, your work. In all walks of life we are accountable; based on who we are and the role we play.
In the kingdom its about knowing who you are – not in a religious sense. Its about knowing that we can do nothing to earn our salvation and we are extended grace by God, therefore performing works – no matter how well meaning cannot justify anyone. How loves us and wants to to be justified by grace…by His love.
