166 Is Your Identity in Christ?



Is Your Identity in Christ?



…And in Him you have been made complete,
and He is the head over all rule and authority…
Colossians 2:10



God is in the people-making business. He made you who you are. And He made you who you are in Christ. Only God has the ability to create a person. If you have messed up the masterpiece of you, God can re-make you. Whether it is your spirit, your soul, or your body, He has the desire, power and material necessary to bring about your transformation. Isn’t that awesome?

The apostle Paul had an amazing revelation of who we are in Christ. At the time he met Jesus on the road to Damascus, he was named Saul. After that encounter he became Paul. He was completely transformed.

You see, Saul was involved in a gang of Jewish extremists. He was bound in religion. He believed that hunting down and killing Christians was the right thing to do. But then he met Jesus on the road to Damascus, and all the religion and tradition that bound him fell away. Saul was transformed from a hater of Christ to Paul, a follower of Christ. God loves to transform people as He did Paul.

Paul’s mind was completely renewed to becoming a new creation in God. Through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, he wrote the New Testament teachings of who we are in Christ, what we have in Christ and what we can do in Christ.

I have a blue mini-book titled, In Him, by Kenneth E. Hagin. It contains all the scriptures that describe who we are in Christ. This is an important point: It is God’s Word that is the mirror of our identity in Christ. Sometimes people put the emphasis of their Christian identity on their denomination or church affiliation. Others identify themselves as Christians by the rules and regulations they follow. But true transformation is shown to others through excitement, hope and love for people. And that type of excitement is centered in Jesus who is the source of all blessing in our lives. Our experience with Jesus creates an overflow that shows we are different than the world.

We need to receive revelation of our identity in Christ by meditating on New Testament scriptures. Begin by finding scriptures that contain the phrase “in Him.” Meditate on what God has done for you through Jesus, who you are in Jesus, and what you have in Jesus. You are not the same person you used to be. You are a new transformed person in Jesus.

Will you choose to set your identity in Christ? Now, that’s the choice-driven life!

The Most Important Choice You Can Make: Prayer for Salvation: God in Heaven, I come to You in the name of Your Son, Jesus. I confess that I haven’t lived my life for You.
