Finding My Identity in Christ
Part of our brokenness as humans is that we allow ourselves to be defined by damaged and sinful people, or look to sources from this fallen world to find our identity. But when we learn, not only to know our Creator, but to allow Him to define us, everything changes! When we begin finding our identity in Christ, we discover that God created us in His own image, that He chose us as His own, adopted us into His family, and intentionally designed us for a unique purpose. We then become important members of the body of Christ, set apart to be holy and to carry His light into the world.
For you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for He called you out of the darkness into His wonderful light. Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people. 1 Peter 2:9-10
The Identified Series: An Ephesians Bible Study
A good first step for finding your identity in Christ!
Join us in a Bible study through the book of Ephesians as we seek to answer the question, “Who am I?” together.
Our goal is to come before the God who created us and allow Him to give us our labels. He’s the one who gets to tell us who we are! And when we learn to find our identity in Christ, it no longer matters what people might think or say about us. We can live our lives in freedom, knowing exactly what the God of the universes says about who we are.
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blesses us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before He made the world, God loved us and choses us in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes. – Ephesians 1:3-4

If you’ve never tried it, Scripture writing is a great way to interact with the Word of God, helping it to sink deep into your heart. It’s exactly what it sounds like. Just writing out the words of passages from the Bible. Creative people like to add their flourishes to it and make it pretty, and that’s wonderful! But it isn’t necessary. We have compiled passages of Scripture on specific topics, and put them together with space to write out the ones you choose. The ever-growing library of topics can be found in the resource library.
