Identity In Christ

God is not a man that He should lie. Therefore, whatever He says about me is true. (Numbers 23:19) God has blessed me with every spiritual blessing through His Son Jesus Christ. Before the creation of the world he chose me to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined me to be adopted as His son through Jesus Christ. God has lavished His grace on me and I am redeemed and forgiven. I have been marked in Christ with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit who is a deposit guaranteeing my eternal inheritance. Because of God’s abundant goodness, I will live for the praise of His glory. (Ephesians 1:3-14)

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. (Galatians 2:20) I have been washed, I have been sanctified, I have been justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of God. (1 Corinthians 6:11) I am a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! (2 Corinthians 5:17) I am the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:21) I have been set free from sin and have become a slave to righteousness. (Romans 6:18) I am God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for me to do. (Ephesians 2:20) There is no longer any condemnation for me because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life has set me free from the law of sin and death. (Romans 8:1-2) Because the Son has set me free, I am free indeed. (John 8:36)

I have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. (1 Peter 1:23) Because I am born of God, I will overcome the world. (1 John 5:4) I am part of a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, and I belong to God. (1 Peter 2:9) I know God and He knows me. (Galatians 4:9) He has lavished His love on me and called me a child of God. (1 John 3:1) When Christ appears, I will be like Him. (1 John 3:2) Christ is not ashamed to call me His brother. (Hebrews 2:11) Even while I was God’s enemy, Christ died for me. (Romans 5:8) Nothing will be able to separate me from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus my Lord. (Romans 8:39)

I am no longer a foreigner, but a fellow citizen with God’s people and a member of God’s household. (Ephesians 2:19) My citizenship is in heaven. (Philippians 3:20) The Spirit Himself testifies with my spirit that I am God’s child. And since I am God’s child, I am also an heir-an heir of God and a co-heir with Christ. (Romans 8:16-17) I am not just Christ’s servant, I am His friend. (John 15:16)

According to God’s word I am strong, the word of God lives in me, and I have overcome the evil one. (1 John 2:14) I am more than a conqueror. (Romans 8:37) God did not give me a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7) Thanks be to God! He gives me the victory through my Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:57)
