Remember Who You Are!

When you are down, discouraged, disappointed and depressed, remember who you are!
Since I am in Christ, by the grace of God?
I am God’s child (Galatians 3:26,27).
I am a saint (1 Corinthians 1:2).
I am a disciple (Matthew 28:19).
I am a Christian (1 Peter 4:16).
I have been justified by faith, completely forgiven and made righteous (Romans 5:1).
I have died with Christ and died to the power of sin’s rule over my life (Romans 6:1-6).
I am free from condemnation (Romans 8:1).
I have been given the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16).
I have been bought with a price; I am not my own; I belong to God (1 Corinthians 6:19,20).
I have been given the Holy Spirit as an earnest of my inheritance (Romans 1:13,14).
I no longer live for myself but for Christ (2 Corinthians 5:14,15).
I am crucified with Christ, and I no longer live. I live by faith in the Son of God (Galatians 2:20).
I am blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places (Romans 1:3).
I will be raised up and seated with Christ in the heavenly places (Romans 2:6).
I have access through Him in one Spirit to the Father (Romans 2:18).
I can access the Father through Him with boldness and confidence (Romans 3:12).
I have been rescued from the domain of darkness and transferred into the kingdom of God’s beloved Son (Colossians 1:13,14).
I have been redeemed and forgiven of all my sins (Colossians 1:13,14).
I have Christ Himself in me, the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27).
I am firmly rooted in Christ and am now being built in Him (Colossians 2:7).
I am made complete in Christ (Colossians 2:10).
My life is now hidden with Christ in God. Christ is now my life (Colossians 3:1-4).
I do not have to be afraid, since God has given me a spirit of power, love, and self-discipline (2 Timothy 1:7).
I am sanctified by the suffering of Christ, and Jesus is not ashamed to call me brother (Hebrews 2:9-11).
I have the right to come boldly before the throne of God to find mercy and grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16).
I am part of a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession. I have been called out of darkness into His marvelous light (1 Peter 2:9).
I have been granted everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence (2 Peter 1:3).
By the grace of God, we are what we are. Perhaps it would help us all to remember who we are when down or tempted or challenged.
You think about it, and it’s pretty amazing what God has called us to.
