Thursday 13 - Your Identity In Christ

Today, for a Thursday 13, I am going to list thirteen of the many verses we found that tell us who we are in Christ. We are researching these verses for church on Sunday.

1. Galatians 4:7 - I am not a slave. I am God’s child.

2. Ephesians 1:4 - I am chosen to be holy and without blame because I am loved.

3. 2 Corinthians 5:17 - I am a new creation.

4. Ephesians 2:19 - I am a member of God’s family.

5. Colossians 3:12 - I am chosen by God. I am holy and dearly loved.

6. Ephesians 1:5 - God has adopted me as his child.

7. 1 Corinthians 3:16 & 17 - I am a holy temple. God lives in me.

8. 1 Corinthians 12:27 - I am part of God’s body.

9. Ephesians 1:3 - I am blessed with every spiritual blessing because I belong to Christ.

10. Ephesians 2:10 - I am God’s workmanship. I was created to do good works.

11. Ephesians 1:7-10 - I am redeemed and forgiven.

12. 1 Peter 2:9 - I am a member of the royal priesthood. I am a member of the holy nation.

13. 2 Corinthians 5:18 - I am reconciled through Christ.

Let me encourage you to read this list aloud. Then look up those verses and commit them to memory. Know that if you have come to know Christ, you are those things. Your identity is not in what you do but in who you are in Christ. Know he died for you and paid your debt not because of anything you did but because Christ loves you even when you are living in sin. If you have stumbled across this blog, know that it was not an accident. God wants you to know that He loves you and wants you to know Him.

  1. I really like your blog how true it is that we are to find our identity in Christ and how easy it is for us to forget who we belong to. God Bless!
