I searched and found these descriptions in Romans, Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Colossians and Timothy. This isn’t me being arrogant. I certainly don’t deserve this identity and could never have earned it. These are truths from the Word of God.
I am justified
No condemnation awaits me
I am set free from the law of sin that leads to death
I am made holy and acceptable
I am righteous
I will be made alive at the resurrection
I am a new creation
I receive God's righteousness
I am one with other believers
I am blessed with every spiritual blessing
I am holy and blameless
I am God's child
I am FORGIVEN
I am under Christ's authority
I belong to God by the Holy Spirit
I have been raised up to sit with Christ in glory
I am God's work of art
I am near to God
I am promised blessings
I can come with freedom and confidence into God's presence
I am a member of Christ's body, the Church
I am made complete
I am set free from our sin nature
I have eternal glory
There are times that I certainly don't feel these truths with my emotions and my brain can't quite comprehend a few of them even on my good days.
But God says they are true.
And so they are.
Tomorrow I will tell you a bit more about what I've learned in the past year. About God. About myself. About His amazing promises.
