MY IDENTITY IN CHRIST

The Word: Galatians 2: 20(KJV)

20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Think about it

MY IDENTITY IN CHRIST
With the new birth and water baptism, You and I receive a new identity in Christ. Who I am is how God now sees me. This is regardless of my past, my experience, my failures etc. What the word says I am is who I am. There are over 150 scriptures in the word that talks about: in him, in whom, through whom, in Christ, of him….
All these scriptures talks of my new identity. If God says I am a lion. It is important that I see myself as God sees me because the power is released at the point I start seeing myself as God sees me. My reality changes, when I start to see myself the way God sees. The way it works is that God’s word reveals the way he sees me. After assimilating God’s word, I start to see my self as God sees me. Because I see me as he sees me, I start changing into that image of who he says I am.

So who am I in Christ?
1. I am a new creature – 2 Corinthians 5: 17
2. I am born of God – 1 John 5: 4
3. I have been adopted into God’s family
4. I have been redeemed by his blood – Ephesians 1: 7

12. I am complete in him – Colossians 2: 10
