Who I am in Christ: The New Me

By

Mary J. Craig


In this exercise you will discover for yourself, under the teaching of the Holy Spirit into truth, who you are in Christ. Believe in Jesus. Believe Jesus. In John 17, Jesus said he gave us the Father's words, that His desire is oneness, that the Father loves you as the Father loves Jesus (v. 23). You are sanctified through truth. God's word is truth (v. 17). As you begin, read John 17 to discover the heart of Jesus for you as He prayed unto His Father. Then turn John 17 into a prayer and pray it.

The most helpful way to use this list is to look up the Scriptures for yourself.  Ask the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, to put truth in the inward parts (deep down where you live; truth at the core of your being). Psalm 51:6.

This assignment will help you see for yourself from Scripture who a person is in Christ.  Our worth is not based on anything in us, but is based on the worth of the One who loved us and gave Himself for us.  He that spared not His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how shall He not also freely give us all things?  Romans 8:32

God the Father sees the His children by adoption and accepts them "in the Beloved."  We have worth because the One who loved us is worthy.

Remember, Jesus owns you (the definition of JOY).  The Word of God defines you.  In Christ you are controlled by the Holy Spirit (the self controlled by the Holy Spirit, a fruit of the Spirit). God is for you and not against you.  He loves with an everlasting love.

Carefully read Romans chapters 6, 7, and 8.

May you be strong in the LORD and in the power of His might, and may His love be shed abroad in your heart by the Holy Spirit.

Mary Craig, D. Min.
