YOUR TRUE IDENTITY IS IN JESUS CHRIST
God’s intention from the beginning was to make man in Christ. Everything the father called good was made for man. It was created for man to enjoy.
Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”
God intended to make man in his image. His image is Christ. As Christ reveals in all clarity and simplicity the father unto us.
Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation,
When Christ came he didn’t just reveal the father to us. He revealed us to us. He showed us our true self. He showed us how we were created to be. He showed us who we were made to be. He showed us that he did everything he accomplished as us and for us. Colossians 2
For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with him you were raised to new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead.
We weren’t made to define ourselves by anything other than who we are through the father’s eyes.
The father has called you righteous, holy, worthy of love, Cherished, royalty. The father has always been and will always be on our side, glory to God.
But you are not like that, 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.
Any other thing that isn’t this can never be our true reality. Christ is our truth. He alone defines us. This is who we are. Spend time today feasting on our reality.
