Bible Verses on My Identity in Christ
I remember sitting on my bed crying for hours. And I was angry. Angry with my situation and pain I had to endure at the hands of another. Feeling alone, insecure, not worthy nor wanted. I felt unloved and deeply betrayed.
The one who had promised to love me forever had done the unthinkable. I was broken. I had been left to pick up the pieces of what felt like the after affects of a massive tornado.
Sifting through the rubble, hoping to find bits and pieces of hope. Something I could cling to – to save me. I sat. Tear stained face. God’s Word open beside me, tear drops wrinkled its thin pages.
Have you ever found yourself in such a place of pain that you search the Bible for Scriptures on your Identity in Christ to bring you comfort? Or searched for Bible studies on Identity in Christ to bring you peace?
Pain and hard life trials seem to have a way of keeping us confused, if we allow them, on our identity in Christ. Who we truly are, because of Jesus, can be unclear and smeared by the trials we go through in life. Also, labels that society harshly bombard us with can be overwhelming to the heart.
Everything opposite of who I am in Christ; that’s what I was feeling.
I was not yet strong enough nor knowledgeable in the Word to combat the lies that stole my identity.
And at that moment, God met me. He found me in my pain. He began to remind me of who I was through Him. He showed me who He is and who I am in Him. It was like His love was surrounding me in a security blanket.
What is My Identity in Christ?
We are because of who He is.
“Christian selfhood is not defined in terms of who we are in and of ourselves. It’s defined in terms of what God does to us and the relationship he creates with us and the destiny he appoints for us. God made us who we are so we could make known who he is. Our identity is for the sake of making known his identity.” Quote from Desiring God
