Who I Am In Christ

Years ago, they handed this out at church. I have hung onto it, and I thought I'd share it. Actually, what I do with this is put it inside a big ziplock bag and stick it to the wall of my shower. Then I read it every day.

Sometimes I can't get all the way through it because I become so overwhelmed with the difference between what Christ made me with His death, and what I actually live out. I force myself to finish it anyway. This is truth that will transform us.

This is not an end in itself, it is only the beginning. If we understand that our insecurities and sin have no control over us anymore because of Christ, we are then free to live for the good of others, like Kim's post that I linked to earlier. Insecurity and emotional pain are (usually) a result of forgetting who we are and wallowing in our own sin nature and selfishness. I'm preaching to myself here!

Let's quit that.


  1. That is awesome. It would be incredible what would happen if all of us truly believed that. The enemy is so tricky to get us hung up on all of our insecurities - I can't even begin to imagine how effective we would be as a body of Christ if we lived this out. Thanks for the reminder. I saved this and it may appear in my shower in the near future too. :)

  2. I love that, we had it handed out at our church, also. I've kept it on my fridge and it's like a life raft on some days!
