The first three chapters of Paul's Letter to the Ephesians have a great deal to teach us about who we are in Christ and what we have in Christ. The foundation of our identity as believers is our position in Christ. To fully embrace our true identity in Christ, we must first trust what Jesus did for us in his death and Resurrection. Second, we must believe and accept what God says we are rather than who others say we are. The following list (written in the first person and based on Ephesians 1) is your true identity in Christ. I invite you to repeat these truths out loud on a regular basis.
|Ephesians 1:1||I am a saint.|
|Ephesians 1:3||I am blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ.|
|Ephesians 1:4-5||I am chosen and predestined for adoption to sonship by the Heavenly Father|
|Ephesians 1:6||I am accepted by God and a recipient of his grace.|
|Ephesians 1:7||I am redeemed and forgiven in Christ.|
|Ephesians 1:11||I have a wonderful inheritance of spiritual riches in Christ.|
|Ephesians 1:13-14||I am indwelled and sealed by the Holy Spirit who guarantees my inclusion into the family of God.|
|Ephesians 1:15-18||I have access to spiritual wisdom and insight in Christ by the Holy Spirit.|
|Ephesians 1:19-21||I participate in the Resurrection and Ascension of Christ because of the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit.|
|Ephesians 1:22-23||As a member of the Body of Christ I am united to the Lord and represent him on earth.|
