Forward Friday: My Identity In Christ

 Adapted from “Morning Affirmations” by Kenneth Boa

Every morning for a month, try beginning the day by reading aloud the following scriptural affirmations.  If you like to journal, keep track of your thoughts and comments about yourself over the month.  Note any verses that have special meaning for you or impact on your daily life.  Allow God to reveal to you the truth about yourself.  Ask God to help you replace the lies you may have been believing with these truths.

1) “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and delivered himself up for me.”  (Galatians 2:20)

2) I have forgiveness from the penalty of sin because Christ died for me.  (Romans 5:8; 1 Corinthians 15:3)

3) I have freedom from the power of sin because I died with Christ.  (Colossians 2:11; 1 Peter 2:24)

4) I have fulfillment for this day because Christ lives in me.  (Philippians 1:20-21)

5) By faith, I will allow Christ to manifest his life though me.  (2 Corinthians 2:14)

There is so much more God tells us about who we are.  Find some for yourself and share them in the comments section.

  1. Thanks for this… I always forget about the freedom! It’s so easy to get bogged down with how badly I’m doing. But then I realise, Christ paid the price so get out there and live for him!
