Who am I in Christ?
- 2015 30 Dec
And not because we need to have a pat answer to give to people when they say, 'What does being a Christian mean?' But because who we are in Christ is what we act out in our daily life. So if I believe one thing and I say I believe something different, it really doesn't matter what I say who I am is, because our actions are going to prove what we really believe. So we are going to need to back up who we are in Christ by God's promises. Understanding what the Bible explicitly says about who we are once we accept that salvation through Christ.
Ephesians says that, 'We were once far off, and now we've been brought near. Scripture says that we are sons and daughters, it says that we are forgiven, that we are righteous. It says that we are now no longer under condemnation from the law, so we are set free. And so those are things that we want to cling to as who we are in Christ, so that when we start to have thoughts that doubt all that scripture says, we understand that we who are in Christ really should be affecting and impacting positively how we live out our life and take steps of action, how we make choices, how we see ourselves and others in the world. Who I am in Christ is a really foundational question for any believer to understand."
