The other day, I tweeted, “When you know who you are in Christ, others won’t arrest you of your identity and you won’t be addicted to their approval.” If your past robbed you of knowing who you are–then like me–we need to be in constant motion of discovering that in our present. But the discovery of that needs to be made through Christ. HE created us. HE knows who we are. HE knows how to get us back to what we were born to be! So one practical way to do this is to look at what Christ promises. [Note: I normally keep my posts to one paragraph. But this is too good of content to withhold from you! The following is proof of who you are in Christ. Feel free to copy and paste or visit this link to read more: knowingwhoiaminchrist.]
