Your True Identity in Christ – Seeing Yourself as God Sees You
Susan Bilitz, MA, LPC and Laurie Smrz, RN
It is important to know, remember, and live by your true identity in Christ. The following Bible verses will help you see yourself as God sees you.
I am a child of God and I belong to Him.
John 1:12 – Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.
I am loved by God and nothing can separate me from His love.
1 Peter 2:9 – But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
Romans 8:35-39 – Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I am chosen by God.
Ephesians 1:4 – For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.
I am forgiven and my sin-debt is paid.
Colossians 2:13-14 – When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having cancelled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross.
I am strengthened for all tasks to which God calls me.
Philippians 4:13 – I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
The Holy Spirit is with me.
John 14:16 – And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever.
I have peace with God through my Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 5:1 – Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
I am never alone – God will not leave me.
Hebrews 13:5 – Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
