Who am I in Christ? • 02.29.12
By Benoni Mugarura-Mutana
Have you received Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord?
If you have, he has set you free through his victory over sin and death on the cross. Your destiny is eternal and your security is in Christ.
If you are not experiencing freedom, it may be because you have not stood firm in the faith or have not actively taken your place in Christ. Your daily victory as one chosen by God is at stake if you fail to claim and maintain your position in Jesus.
Here are some verses from the Bible to remind you of who you are in Christ.
- You are a child of God (John 1:12)
- You are a friend of Christ (John 15:15)
- You are not at war with God, but at peace (Romans 5:1)
- You are called to be separate and holy (2Corinthians 6:17)
- You are adopted into God’s family through Christ (Ephesians 1:5)
- You are forgiven (Colossians 1:14)
- You have been given fullness in Christ (Colossians 2:10)
As a true believer in Christ, you are not a helpless victim. You are not merely caught between the spiritual forces with no way out. (more…)
