Who I Am In Christ

I want to start out by saying that I am not the author of this article. God put it on the heart of a woman in our congregation to put these scriptures together to help people realize who they are in Christ. I trust that you will be encouraged by it. Pastor Duane Vander Klok

Ephesians 2:13 says, “But now in Christ you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.”

One of the first things you were taught as a small child was your name. Your heavenly Father also knows how important your identity is – that’s why He made you a new creation in Him when you received Jesus Christ as your Lord (1 Corinthians 5:17). God desires and intends for you to see yourself as being so one (united, in agreement) with Him that your victorious life will draw many others to Him.

One of the reasons you may have lived with defeat, discouragement or low self-esteem is because you haven’t totally seen yourself through God’s eyes. You’ve only seen yourself through the mirror of your past; what others have said about you, your own experiences, or lies that the devil has whispered to you and you have believed. Now it’s time to look at yourself through the mirror of God’s Word of Truth, the Bible.

Romans 12:2 shows you how to do this. (It says: “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”) As you daily feed yourself from God’s wonderful Word of love and light, He will show you clearly who you are as one who now believes in Him. You will begin to see yourself without the mirror of your past, and the lies that you once believed will be replaced by God’s true vision of who you are! It is an awesome miracle that God does in the hearts of those who repent and turn control of their lives over to God and seek Him wholeheartedly.

These verses are offered to you as a starting place to your freedom. As you read through them, we encourage you to open up your Bible and see for yourself what God has written about you. But please don’t stop there. Confess each promise aloud, mix it with faith, and receive the revelation that you ARE who God says you are and you HAVE what He says you have.

God’s Words are exceedingly more powerful than the devil’s lies, and you will experience His power to transform your life when you agree with what God says. Our prayer for you is that you will live your life “IN CHRIST”, becoming so aware of His love for you and your new and true identity in Him, that you will see yourself through His eyes and reflect His glory to others. Choose to take time today to know and remember who you are in Christ. Allow the Holy Spirit to reveal these truths to you, and your life will never be the same!
