Do you know who you are? Many of us have thoughts of ourselves that are superficial and perhaps just flat-out wrong. Culture bases our on our looks, wealth, status, and the things we’ve done in our past. But God doesn’t base our identity on these things; God basis our identity on our relationship with Him. Understanding who we truly are is crucially important because it affects every aspect of our lives (how we feel about ourselves, how we relate to others, knowing good from bad, etc.). Claiming who we are in God’s eyes is the only way to ever live in true freedom and victory.As we begin the new year, let’s examine the lies that we might be believing about ourselves. Let’s begin the new year knowing who we truly are in Christ!
I AM CHOSEN

God tells us something about our identity in Christ that is meant to encourage us and fill us with great confidence. God tells us we are chosen by Him before the creation of the world! Once we understand this truth about our identity, it can radically change our lives in a positive way. But, what does being “chosen” mean? And how do we know if we’re chosen by God? Find out this week.
I Am Righteous

If we’re honest, many of us struggle to feel God’s love and receive His blessing. Many of us think God has a special love for those people who don’t deal with our struggles. We are tempted to think God reluctantly tolerates the rest of us. In our struggles it can feel like God is angry with us. But what if you could finally rest in grace and take advantage of unimaginable blessing? God tell us something incredible: He says in Christ, despite our imperfections, we’re considered “righteous”! Knowing what this actually means for our lives could radically transform our future.
