WHO AM I?
WHO AM I? WHO ARE YOU? IS NOT OUR IDENTITY IN CHRIST?
When someone is struggling through a trial, they may start remembering their old sin life. They might get down on themselves allowing satan to jump in and attack with his lies. The devil wants you to forget that you are a new creation in Christ and that all your past sins have been forgiven AND forgotten.
John 8:32 (NIV) Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free
The opposite of truth is deception or false beliefs… and will cause you to live in bondage unnecessarily.
You are loved by God. Not because of anything you have done but because He longs to have a relationship with you. The Word of God tells us that He loved us while we were yet sinners.
Romans 5:8 (NIV) But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV) Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
As a new creation in Christ the chains of death and sin are cut loose. We can freely approach the throne room and submit our petitions to the Father who loves us so very much. We are His adopted children. That should be our identity!! We are royalty. We are the children of the Creator of the Universe and the King and Ruler of Heaven.
