Who You Are in Christ

We, as believers, are defined by who we are in Christ. The Bible says “If any man in in Christ, He is a new creation.  Old things have passed away and behold all things are become new” (2 Cor. 5:17). Being in Christ is the beginning of a new creature, a brand new person who was “Chosen in Him before the foundation of the world” (Eph. 1:4) and you entered into that at the time you received Christ. You received eternal life and were translated out of the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of His dear Son as you were birthed a new creature in Christ.

You are renewed in your mind; you become more and more aware of who you are, as you embrace the truth of the Scripture; the truth about God and what He says about you. Once you know who you are, you realize that, by His life in you, you can act that way. Trust in him with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding (Prov. 3:5). God is conforming you to the image of His Son.  Your opportunity is to yield yourself to Him; “acknowledge Him in all your ways and He will direct your paths” (Prov. 3:6).  Since that is true, then anyone the Lord puts in your path is there because He put them there. You have the privilege of showing them the love of God in Christ because His life, His love, dwells in you. It’s true because God says it’s true – that’s powerful.

Find out what “Your Heavenly Father says about you.”  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, and speak, what He says.
