Who am l? What is my true identity? These are the Best Bible Verses on Our Identity in Christ

The question of identity is one that so many of us have struggled with at some point in our lives. Even after we are saved and become Christians, we often doubt what God says about us. Why is this the case though? 

It’s because we don’t live in isolation. We want to fit in with the people around us. These people may have told us who we are and we believed their negative voices. We can measure our worth by what they say because we value their opinion. 

Sometimes it’s your background, marital status, health situation, culture, or social media that tell you who you are. 

But it’s not about following your heart. It’s not about allowing people, temporary roles, or ever-changing situations to define us. We need to go to the truth of God’s word. 

When you believe and declare who God says you are, you start to feel secure and significant in God. Your faith grows and you gain confidence as the word of God affirms your value. 

Your identity is so powerful because it defines and distinguishes you. It anchors and guides you. May these Beautiful Identity in Christ Bible Verses inspire, empower, and encourage you to embrace your Biblical identity.

What does the Bible say about our Identity in Christ?

Identity means who you are as a person. Not so much what you do, but who you are. It’s how you are distinguished and recognized.

Specifically, my identity in Christ means believing and living according to what God says about me not what society or those around me say. It means being firmly rooted in and living according to how the Bible defines me not how I define myself. 

It’s important to talk right and to talk truth. What we say about ourselves impacts our beliefs and actions. Do you believe that you are not enough, not worthy of love, a failure, just a divorcee? God sees you as so much more. 

Biblical identity means the Bible has the final say regarding who I am as a person. This is not dependent on how you feel or the current circumstances you see. 

The good news is even when you feel like a failure, your identity won’t change. Remember we are a work in progress.

In 2 Corinthians 5:7, the Bible says we live by faith, not by sight. So no matter how you feel, what you see, or even whether you believe it or not, your identity is true and unchanging.

With our personal relationship with Christ being the foundation of our faith our true identity is centered on Him, not self. Our worth, value, and significance are based on what God says not what we think or even what others say.

Another truth to remember is we don’t earn our new identity. You can do good works such as going to church, feeding the orphans, or reading the Bible to earn your God’s favor but these don’t determine your identity. It’s all based on what Christ Jesus has done on the cross for us. 

Why should we know our true identity? 

The enemy plans to distort God’s truth or even keep us ignorant and unaware of it so that we can believe we are not good enough or worthy of the good things our God has stored up for us. 

The good news is when you know who you are, you become empowered, confident, secure, and safe. It sets you free from the enemy’s lies and transforms your mind, actions, and life. 

At times, you won’t feel like you are who God says you are but keep believing in God’s truth and watch as His grace transforms you to align with His word.

Knowing who you are in Christ opens your eyes and heart to your God-given purpose, potential, and power.

Who am I in Christ? I am Loved

We desire to be loved, wanted, and accepted for who we are- faults and all.  And God’s love does just that. He loves us unconditionally.  

Nothing and no one can separate us from the love of God that we find in Christ Jesus. These are great verses that will remind you that you are a beloved child of God.

Romans 8:15-17 ESV

Who am I in Christ? I am Saved

These verses remind us that we are saved through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We have been saved from sin and its consequences and ultimate punishment-death and separation from God.

The blood of Jesus Christ washes away all our sins and a shift that has to happen when we become saved.  We’ve become new and that is our identity in Christ.

As a person, you are a spirit, with a soul, living in a body. So, when you receive Jesus Christ, you may still be the same person physically but your spirit is now new and your soul (emotions, thoughts) continues to be transformed to become like Christ.

This is a process that takes time and continues by faith and the working of the Holy Spirit in us.

We are now holy just as He is holy because we’ve been cleansed by Jesus’ blood
