Identity in Christ


identity in Christ Display windowFor the past few weeks I have been waking up in the night thinking about the concept of Identity, specifically what it means for us to have our identity in Christ. I put together this window display at our church as a reminder of the power of our identity. Identity is of the utmost importance because who you believe you are influences everything else about your life. Sadly, so many things can shape a false identity for us, bad experiences, unkind words, unmet expectations. Luckily God did not leave us to wonder about who we are. He defines us in so many ways but most directly through the scriptures. For those of you who have forgotten and for those of you who may have never heard, this is who God says you are.

“And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them”

You are a Child of God (John 1:12)
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name”

You are Loved by God (Romans 5:8)
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.”

You are God’s Workmanship (Ephesians 2:10)

You are Saved by Grace (Ephesians 2:8)
“For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works that no one should boast.”

You are Sons and Daughters of God (Galatians 3:26-29)
“For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to the promise”
