Who are you? One basic simple question that requires so many complex answers. Knowledge of yourself has rippling effects in everything you find yourself doing. What we identify as influences how we tackle the many faces of life. It is very important to know who you are. Psychologists, anthropologists and scientists all have their views on the identity of humans. Let’s shift focus to the spiritual perspective of the self. WHO ARE YOU IN CHRIST?


The guilty feelings that follow us when we do something ‘sinful’ is so massive at times we feel there is no way we can go back to the Father. What we do not know or forget is that there is so much grace for us and freedom from bondage. It does not help much when we find ourselves in churches and religious meetings where incomplete scriptures are hammered into our brains over and over again worsening our feelings of self-disgust and further weakening our knowledge of our identity of always being right in the Lord. One such famous scripture is Romans 3:23; “For all have sinned and continue to fall short of God’s glory” [KJV].

God does not find fault with us. God does not see us as chronic sinners. No! That is not our identity in Christ. Our redemption is forever in God. When he died to set us free it was not on probation. Our salvation is eternal and so our identity is sinners no more; redeemed forever. Our ever-present ailment as Christians is that we do not know who we are and what we have. We do not understand what being saved means because we do not take the time to study it. A little extra effort to read the complete scripture for ourselves would show us that “By his grace they are justified freely through the redemption that is in the Messiah Jesus” [Romans 3:24, ISV].

Dear one, make no mistake. Your redemption is not dependent on what you do or do not do. Your salvation does not disappear because you ‘sinned’ or slipped up. It is your identity that you are saved. That you are righteous in Christ. This is not to encourage more frequent slipups in your journey as a Christian rather it is to encourage you that in spite of everything you have done that is weighing you down always remember that what you did does not define you. Believe and know who you are in Christ. Say to yourself that you are forever righteous in Christ, live by it and you will find that your entirety would reflect your identity.
