“Anyone who belongs to Christ is a new person. The past is forgotten, and everything is new.” – 2 Corinthians 5:17 (CEV)
Knowing who you are in Christ is the key to victorious living as a Christian. When you accept Jesus as your Savior and Lord, you take on a brand new identity. You no longer have to carry around names or labels you were called in your past.
The Word of God assures us that anyone, regardless of race or status, who comes to Christ has become a new creation. Old things have passed away and now all things have become new. The literal translation of this scripture says that you are “a new species of being that never existed before.”
Although nothing may have changed physically on the outside, everything has completely changed on the inside. However, the only way to know who you are in Christ is by knowing what God’s Word says about you. If you don’t know the truth about who you are, then you’ll believe the lie about what you’re not.
What Christ says about you trumps every negative word spoken against you. Knowing who you are in Christ also means knowing what Jesus purchased on your behalf. A revelation of this truth will enable you to access your full inheritance and walk in total victory!
