Who we really are in Christ
I paraphrased the first three chapters of Ephesians and made them personal as to what we have and are in Christ. This is only three chapters. Imagine if we did this to all of Paul’s writings. I think it would change our identity if we meditated on who God says we are in Him.
3 I am blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,
4 I am holy and blameless before Him
5 I am adopted as a son through Jesus
6 He freely bestowed grace on me.
7 I have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of my trespasses
11 I am an inheritance to God
13 I am sealed with the Holy Spirit
14 I am God’s own possession
4 with His great love He loved me,
5 He made me alive together with Christ,
6 God raised me up with Him, and seated me with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
8 For by grace I have been saved through faith; and that not of myself, it is the gift of God;
9 not as a result of works, so that I can’t boast.
10 I am His masterpiece,
13 I am brought near by the blood of Christ.
14 He is my peace,
15 He abolished the Law of commandments against me that caused me strife
17 HE CAME AND PREACHED PEACE TO ME
18 through Him I have access to the Father in the Spirit.
19 I am of God’s household,
22 I am a dwelling of God in the Spirit.
4 God has given me the ability to understand the mysteries of Christ.
6 I am a fellow heir, fellow member of the body and fellow partaker of the promise in Jesus.
7 I teach the angelic realm the wisdom of God.
8 I have bold access to God through Christ.
15 I derive my name from God.
16 I am strengthened on the inside through the power of the spirit.
17 Christ dwells in my heart to ground me in love.
18 I have been given the ability to comprehend the height and depth of God’s love for me.
19 I know the love of Christ, which surpasses knowledge, it fills me up to the fullness of God.
20 Working within me is the power to do exceedingly abundantly more than I can ask or think.
