Knowing Who We Are in Christ

Print

Watching someone go through an identity crisis is painful, but if we’ve been born again, our identity is safe. God’s unmerited favor toward us has made it possible for our identities to change from the sinners we were to people as holy and sinless as Jesus Himself. In Christ, our true identity is spiritual, not carnal. When we believe the truth of the Gospel of Grace, we realize that who we are is based on the Rock that can never be shaken.

God loves us so much that He doesn’t want us to think that what we see all around us is the truth. Periodically, the world declares that what was right is now wrong, and what was once wrong is now acceptable. We can get confused, but God sent His Son to free us from the entanglement of ever-changing rules and regulations. Jesus is grace personified, and to believe Him is to believe immutable truth.

One of the precious gifts God gave us is the right to become His child. Some people don’t believe this could ever be possible, but lining our mindset up with His Word reveals that it is. When we learn who we are in Christ, we discover that our pasts don’t matter to Him, only our futures. If this can work with Paul, a former murderer whom God used powerfully, it can work for us!

Knowing our true identity changes not only our lives here on earth, but it also changes where we’re going after we leave it. Being part of God’s family makes us heaven-ready. His powerful grace is available to anyone who is ready to experience real transformation.

Prayer:

Father God, You made a way for our identities to change. Because of what Christ did, never again will we have to wonder about our identity as Your children, even when we sin and miss the mark. Thank You. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Scriptures:

1 Samuel 2:2

John 1:17

Acts 8:1-3

2 Corinthians 7:1, 2
