Who you are in Christ

One key foundation for us as Disciples of Christ is to know who you are and what you have in Christ. I mentioned this is previous posts earlier in the week.

Back in 1989 when I came to Christ, I had a very low, almost non-existent, self-esteem. I really thought I was a waste of space and not worth much at all.

Over time this changed to seeing myself through the lens of Scripture. I am now more interested in who God says I am, rather than the world or those around me say.

Every year that goes by I find my mind is being renewed more and more in this area. As a result I did a sermon for my church titled, “10 things God says about you in the Bible”. The summary points and verses are below.

  1. You are made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26-27)
  2. You were chosen before the world was made (Ephesians 1:4-5)
  3. You were created and equipped for good works (Ephesians 2:10)
  4. You are adopted into His family (John 1:12)
  5. You have the Holy Spirit living inside you (Romans 8:11)
  6. You are no longer condemned (Romans 8:1)
  7. You are seated with Christ (Ephesians 2:4-7)
  8. You were knit together in your mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13)
  9. You are truly loved by God (1 John 4:9-10)
  10. You are free in Christ (John 8:36)

Today I just want to remind you that God made you wonderful. You are amazing. You are special. You are loved. You are priceless in God’s eyes.

Blessings,
