“Just touch the hem of My garment” Pt.2

As a Christian what is my identity in Christ? In other words who am I in Christ? I didn’t grow up a Christian, it wasn’t till in my early 20’s I accepted Him as my personal Lord and savior. I didn’t grow fast in the Lord, it took some time. I am so very thankful for His patience, grace and mercy towards me! As I was learning to walk with Him I never point blank asked “Who am I in Christ?” When my childrens  faith has waivered or they don’t know there purpose I have used this chart I found in my bible(most of the credits of this chart goes to Thomas Nelsons Women’s Bible Study NKJV, I did some alterations). When the Lord asked me, his child,” Who do you identify with?” He as my Father brought me to this chart as I did with my children.

I  AM CHOSEN BY GOD~Eph. 1:4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love

I AM ADOPTED BY GOD~Eph. 1:5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasures of His will

I AM A CHILD OF GOD IN HIS FAMILY~ 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.

I AM FORGIVEN BY GOD FOR ALL MY SINS~1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

I AM RECONCILED TO GOD,IN HARMONY WITH HIM~Rom. 5:10 ..we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life(Jesus)

I AM SEEN BY GOD AS HOLY, BLAMELESS, ABOVE REPROACH~Col. 1:22… in the body of His flesh through death, to  present you holy, and blameless and above reproach in His sight

I AM CALLED TO ACCOMPLISH GOD’S PURPOSE~Rom. 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called to according to His purpose.

I AM A FULL CITIZEN AMOUNG GOD’S PEOPLE~Eph.2:19..you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,

I AM JUSTIFIED-DECLARED RIGHT IN GOD’S SIGHT~Rom.5:1..having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ

I AM SANCTIFIED-SET APART BY GOD’S SPIRIT~1 Cor.6:11…you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.

I AM REDEEMED-BOUGHT WITH CHRISTS BLOOD~Eph. 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace…

I AM CLEANSED~1 John 1:7… and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

I AM AN AMBASSADOR FOR CHRIST~ 2 Cor. 5:20…we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.

I AM BEING CONFORMED TO THE CHARACTER OF CHIRST~Rom.8:29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son…

Thank you Lord for giving me a worth and a purpose through my identity in You!

So as my Father asked me I ask you…who do you identify with?
