Who am I?
I am part of a chosen race (1 Peter 2:9).
I am a royal priest (1 Peter 2:9).
I am a son of God (Romans 8:14), (Galatians 3:6).
I am a citizen of heaven (Philippians 3:20-21).
I am a temple of God (1 Corinthians 3:16).
I am an heir of God and a co-heir with Christ (Romans 8:16-17).
I am redeemed and forgiven (Ephesians 1:7).
I am bought by the blood of Jesus (1 Corinthians 1:20).
I am sealed by the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13-14).
I am a conqueror (Romans 8:37).
Positionally, I am sitting with Jesus in heaven (Ephesians 1:20, 2:6).
If I were to say these things in my own name, I would blaspheme. As a born-again Christian, His Bible, His Word, says these things about me.
Amen and Amen.
