Your Identity in Christ


Searching for identity? If you are in Christ, this is what God has to say about you.

[Mat 5:13-14 ESV] 13 “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. 14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.


[Mat 10:31 ESV] 31 Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.


[Mat 23:8 ESV] 8 But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brothers.

[Jhn 13:10 ESV] 10 Jesus said to him, “The one who has bathed does not need to wash, except for his feet, but is completely clean. And you are clean, but not every one of you.”


[Jhn 13:35 ESV] 35 By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”


[Jhn 15:3, 5, 14, 19 ESV] 3 Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. … 5 I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. … 14 You are my friends if you do what I command you. … 19 If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

[Rom 6:14 ESV] 14 For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.


[1Co 1:30 ESV] 30 And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption,


[1Co 3:9, 16-17, 23 ESV] 9 For we are God’s fellow workersYou are God’s field, God’s building. … 16 Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? 17 If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple. … 23 and you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.


[1Co 6:19 ESV] 19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,


[1Co 12:27 ESV] 27 Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.

[Gal 3:26, 28-29 ESV] 26 for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. … 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.


[Gal 4:6-7 ESV] 6 And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.


[Eph 2:19 ESV] 19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,


[Eph 5:8 ESV] 8 for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light

[Phl 1:7 ESV] 7 It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel.

[1Th 5:4-5 ESV] 4 But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. 5 For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness.


[Jas 4:14 ESV] 14 yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.

[1Pe 2:9-10 ESV] 9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

[1Jo 4:4 ESV] 4 Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
