Verses That Show Who We Are In Christ
Many believers are not aware of their redemptive power in Christ Jesus; they are not even aware of who they really are. That is why they fall prey to the devil’s lies. You see, the devil knows you and the power you have. Unfortunately, he knows you have no clue about your inheritance in Christ that is why he is trying so hard to make you believe he has power over you. Below are some of the verses that show who you are in Christ. Don’t just read and move on with life; you have to meditate on it until the word comes alive.
Romans 10:17 “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
Five Verses That Reveals Who We Are In Christ
You Are The Image Of God
Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
When you look at the mirror, what do you see? Do you know you are the spitting image of God? When God wanted to create you, He drew inspiration from within, unlike when He created the stars, the moon, etc. do not let the media define who is beautiful and who is not. To show you are how special you are when God was creating the earth, He didn’t seek anyone’s help, He just spoke the word, and everything manifested. However, when it came to you and me, God said, “let us.”
Genesis 1:26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
You are His temple
1Corinthians 6:19-20 “What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
Being the temple of the Lord is not limited to living a holy life, it also means you are precious, God dwells inside of you, therefore, no sickness, diseases, etc. cannot dwell inside of you (God’s temple).
You Are Royalty
1 Peter 2:9 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar* people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.”
One of the many benefits of salvation is the translation from the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of Light. God has called us to be His representative here on earth. We are not born again to suffer again; we are born to reign as kings and queens in Christ.
You Are The Light Of The World
Matthew 5:14-16 “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
As Christians, we are saved to show others the right way, the only true God. We are pacesetters; we live an exemplary life. It is an error to see Christians using the ways of the world to determine what is best for them. As the light of the world, we are to create godly examples, show the world the right way, and not the other way around. We do not have to tell people that we are Christians; our characters should be enough to let people know who we are. The bottom line is, let your character bring people to Christ.
A Prophet to Nation
Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”
Prophets are God’s messenger on earth, sent to liberate people from the vices of the devil and his agents.
What have you been doing lately? Are you preaching the Word of God to save lives? Are your actions in line with your identity in Christ? Can your colleagues, employer, husband, wife, or children boldly say you are a Christian? You don’t have to climb the pulpit to show everyone that you are God’s elect. Let your Character speak for you, let the words of your mouth bring peace, and love to people. Be the reason someone believes in God
