Our identity in Christ is vital to our spiritual growth. Remembering who we are in Jesus keeps us grounded and grows our faith.
Unfortunately, we tend to forget what Christ has done for us. We don’t keep the facts of God’s mercy in the forefront of our mind. Today, let us be reminded of who we are in Christ. Our faith matures and our hearts grow closer to Christ when we remember whose we are.
1) We are saved.
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
2) We are justified.
Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1
3) We are redeemed.
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace. Ephesians 1:7
4) We are indwelt by the Holy Spirit.
Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
1 Corinthians 3:16
5) We are secure.
For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Child of God, remember what you have in Christ. Dwell on the good things God has done for you. Remember whose you are.
