Are you looking for my identity in Christ verses? When we look at ourselves in the mirror, what do we see? What are your thoughts about yourself? How do you define your identity? See the printable list of my identity in christ verses below.
The above questions are not easy to answer if you’re someone who is suffering from an identity crisis. According to research done by psychologists in Sweden, we are suffering from an epidemic of insecurity, especially teenagers.
There is a vague concept when it comes to their own definition of their own selves. One of the main reasons is because they often base their identity on what society pinpoints, but society’s perspective is so much different from God’s perspective.
My Identity In Christ
WHO AM I?
Our identity in Christ is trustworthy and ceaseless. Despite all the notions of who we are, the only thing that we can trust is how God sees us. God is our creator, He took time to create each individual in this world we’re living in.
As written in Luke 12:7, God even has the very hairs of our head numbered. He gave us the assurance that we do not have to be afraid of anything because we are worthy, worth more than many sparrows. How can we not trust someone who had given us His one and only son?
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”Jeremiah 1:5
This is our security. Security is the exact opposite of being insecure. Once you become so secured in God, you will feel the holy spirit within you as it renews your totality, including your past transgressions and inequities. As Paul reminded the people in Corinth:
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”1 Corinthians 5:17
Paul is reminding us the same thing and this is the importance of finding your worth in the bible. This worth will not disappoint you but fill you in with the love offered by Christ.
We have to understand that God can forgive us internally and not just by external measures. The new identity is given to those who have decided to choose to trust God and to those who have allowed Jesus to be their Lord.
A scripture that is truly helpful to further understand the verse in 1 Corinthians is Ephesians 1:3-14, it talks about our spiritual blessing in Christ.
Ephesians 1:3-14 “Praise for Spiritual Blessings in Christ Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10 to be put into effect when he times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ. In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.”
This is quite a lengthy scripture but it is definitely a must to read in order for us to grasp that we are chosen, specifically by God, by adopting, redeeming, accepting, and forgiving us with his unconditional love.
Our trust and faith in Jesus Christ make us qualified to be one of His holy nations. Once we were strangers and foreigners, but because of Jesus Christ, we are now part of the household of God.
Notice here in the scripture that it also mentioned that every one of us is already qualified to be saints, contradicting the famous notion of being a saint, wherein celibacy and isolation is a must, the Bible testifies that we are already adopted and accepted as saints of God.
What Is Our Identity In Christ?
WHAT DEFINES ME?
No one else can define you but God. Not your friends, not your family, not yourself, not your achievements, not your money, and not even your own actions. God does not look at you from heaven and count the good things you have done. He does not count how many famous friends you have, or how many achievements you have achieved, and certainly, He does not have to inquire your parents to ask them for your worth, because He is the parents of your parents, the very Creator of your own mundane creators.
You might think, “I am a sinner, how can God loved me?” You are loved not because you gained that honor to be loved, but because love covers a multitude of sins, and that unconditional love was given to us by Jesus Christ (1 Peter 4:8).
You are given this identity not because God saw all of your hard work to post scriptures or all of your effort to do all of the commandments in the bible, but because Jesus Christ specifically allowed you to receive grace.
Do not think that “I am condemned, I am too far off.” No one is too far off for God, Jesus Christ already paid the price for your sins, but you have to put your trust in Jesus, for grace is not created so that we can have a license to deliberately create mistakes and sin, but this concept should give us the notion of how forgiving and ineffable Jesus Christ is, thus, our only acceptable response is to express our gratitude by living the life of Christianity.
Since we are adopted in God’s family, it is now our job to be His sons and daughters, making Him our main goal in life, because after all, our identity in Christ is idle without faith.
…. Now, whenever you look at yourself in the mirror, may the thought of Jesus Christ inspire you to see a confident, wonderful, radiant, forgiven, princess/princess of God.
To help you with this, you can personify this scripture in Isaiah by replacing “Israel” and “you” with your name.
Isaiah 43:1-4 “O Israel, the one who formed you says, “Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I gave Egypt as a ransom for your freedom; I gave Ethiopia and Seba in your place. Others were given in exchange for you. I traded their lives for yours because you are precious to me. You are honored, and I love you.”
…. Now, go out to the world and shout your identity in Christ! You are deeply honored and loved.
