Do You Truly Know Who And What You Are In Christ Jesus?

I have a friend who had put this together, and it has helped me tremendously in my understanding. I hope that it brings you peace. I pray that it aids in bringing you closer to Him.

Who Am I ?
This list itemize in first-person language who you really are and what you enjoy in Christ. You can’t earn these qualities any more than you can earn or buy the rights and freedoms you enjoy as a citizen of the nation where you live. These traits are guaranteed to you by the Word of God simply because you were born into God’s family by faith in Christ. There is nothing you can do to make these characteristics more true of you. But you can make them more meaningful and productive in your life by simply choosing to believe them. One of the best ways to grow and mature as a believer is to continually remind yourself who you are and what you possess as a child of God. The more you affirm who you are in Christ, the more your behavior will reflect your true identity.
