From time to time I find myself in need of being reminded of my true identity as a believer in Christ. Read through the following Scriptures and allow the truth of God to uplift your soul.
A Child of God – John 1:12
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name.
A Friend of Jesus – John 15:15
I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
Redeemed – Romans 3:24
Being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus.
No Longer Condemned – Romans 8:1
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
Free From Sin and Death – Romans 8:2
Because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.
A Temple of the Holy Spirit – 1 Corinthians 6:19
Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself.
A Transformed Person – 2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here!
Forgiven – Ephesians 1:7
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.
God’s Handiwork – Ephesians 2:10
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
A Citizen of Heaven – Philippians 3:20
But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Provided For – Philippians 4:19
And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Loved – 1 Thessalonians 1:4
For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that He has chosen you.
