What does it mean to have our identity in Christ?
The Bible tells us when we accept Jesus’ sacrifice, we are new creatures. We lose our identity in this world and become pure, blameless, and forgiven. And with this new identity, we become part of His body, where we are called to be a blessing to others in His name.
Whenever you’re going through an identity crisis, Scripture is an amazing reminder that in Him, we are chosen, and nothing can separate us from God’s unconditional love.
1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
1 Corinthians 1:30
But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.
1 Peter 3:15
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.
1 Samuel 12:22
For the Lord will not forsake His people, for His great name’s sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you His people.
Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering.
Having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
1 John 3:1
Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.
1 Corinthians 12:27
Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.
