Who Am I in Christ?

 

Who Am I in Christ?

Who are you? Who am I? Those who are not saved (or not born again by the Spirit of God), are in a dreadful state and condition! They are “separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world” (Ephesians 2:12). On the other hand, those who have been forgiven of God, reconciled to Him, and redeemed by the blood of Christ, their condition is entirely different! Notice below what I am (and you are) as a child of God:

I am the salt of the earth (Matt.5:13)

I am the light of the world (Matt.5:14)

I am a child of God (John 1:12)

I am Christ’s friend (John 15:15)

I am a enemy of the devil (1 Peter 5:8)

I am a child of God and I will resemble Christ when He returns (1 John 3: 1, 2)

I am born of God, and the evil one – the devil – cannot touch me (1 John 5:18)

I am not the Great I AM, (Exodus 3:14; John 8:24,28,58) but by the grace of God I am what I am (1 Cor.15:10)
