It’s astounding to think about that in Christ, our identity is secure. Christ paid for it through His death and resurrection. We really cannot comprehend this truth, especially in a world where millions of dollars are spent yearly to secure identities from nefarious people.
A secure identity is the goal, right? We want to avoid any type of Identity Crisis and remain secure in living out our Identity in Christ.
Since our Identity in Christ is secure, how should that affect our lives? In other words, how can we externally live out that internal, spiritual reality?
Living Your Identity
You live out our identity in Christ by letting what Jesus did for you drive you. Let it really be what defines you. How?
- Regularly take in what God says about you in his Word. Internalize it. Digest it. Let it become an integral part of you.
- Continually remind yourself of what he thinks of you. You are accepted, secure, and significant no matter what happens or what anyone else says.
- Determine to let your identity in Christ permeate every aspect of your life. Let His Holy Spirit guide, direct, and comfort you at all times. Let your identity in Christ ooze into every aspect of your life.
In other words, make what God says about you — the identity He gave you when you made Jesus Lord of your life — your focus. As you focus on your identity in him, He shapes and directs your life in amazing ways. Your reality will be one of living out that identity.
It really is that simple… LET how Christ defines you define your life.
“Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16)
