Identity in Christ 3

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear or timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline (sound mind).”       2 Timothy 1:7 (NLT)

If last week’s post didn’t light a fire in you, then your woods all wet (as Brother Wayne B. Smith used to say). How awesome is it that God has recreated us in Christ for specific purposes that align with His Kingdom will and that He will finish what He started. However, we must remember that He will never force the… Read More

Knowing and Loving Who You Are in Christ – Pt 2

“Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and anointed us is God, who also sealed us and gave us the Spirit in our hearts as a pledge.” 2 Corinthians 1:21-22

Here’s one of the most powerful and fulfilling promises that we have in Christ…I (You) am (are) established, anointed and sealed by God with the promise and presence of The Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 1:21-22)!

Identity in Christ – A Much Needed Part of His Church

“Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.”  1 Corinthians 12:27

In last week’s post we looked at our identity as being united with Christ in spirit as individuals and alluded to the unity of the Body of Christ. This unity is essential to who we are in Christ because we are literally members of His Body (1 Corinthians 12:27). Paul describes our identity and unity in specific analogous terms of our own bodies and reminds… Read More

Identity in Christ – Pt 2

“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought for a price: therefore glorify God in your body.”  1 Corinthians 6:19-20

We continue to look at who we are and how we are accepted by God in Christ. We are His children, adopted, redeemed, restored and forgiven, and we are complete and whole in Him! That alone is enough… Read More
