Our Identity In Christ

Posted on: June 23, 2013

When we feel down or discouraged with life, remembering who we are in Christ helps bring us back up to a better emotional state. Here is a list of verses and reasons we can experience joy and contentment even if our emotions are telling us different today.

thanks so much mark! I will check out your new site.

I was blessed again today by this post. Thank you so much for posting these verses that remind us of who we are in Christ. I printed the blog out and refer to it when I start feeling down.
Richest blessings,
Tricia

thanks tricia! Hope all is well with you. God bless!

Hi Michele, I tried to reblog this and apparently failed. So I just published the link in a new post with this comment: “This is so encouraging! Especially for those of us whose emotions tend to take some pretty big dips–How much I need these reminders!”

Did you go though Freedom in Christ by Neil Anderson? I did and this is his model for understanding about who we really are not what we say who we are like, “I am a mom” or “I am a plumber”. If we as followers of Christ truly believe the Bible is absolute then, who we are is what the Bible says that we are. In that we find peace, hope and healing.

Freedom in Christ sounds really familiar. It is quite possible I did. Is it lessons for addicts/alcoholics, etc? I will look it up on the web. Thanks for you comment and many blessings to you!

Reblogged this on Tricia's Journal Jots Blog and commented:

Thanks Tricia. Haven’t been on wordpress for a bit so just saw your message. I’m glad you were blessed by the post. I need these reminders myself as my emotions have been haywire lately. 🙂 Many blessings to you friend!

A little about me........my name is Michele and I am a born-again Christian. I was saved as a teenager and graduated from a Christian high school. I am a mother of one son who is the world to me. Despite my upbringing, later in life I fell into a life of self destruction which led me down many dark paths. I am a recovering addict and alcoholic and I have a great passion for Christ and His amazing power to heal even the worst cases. I am living proof of the miracle of God's power to change your life and way of thinking. Nothing is impossible with God.
