Your Identity in Christ

In a previous post, I offered a review of Beauty and the Beast, noting the significance in the story line that people had forgotten their identity, and that this forgetting was at the core of their clinging to fear and ignorance.  Everywhere I go for teaching, I tell people about the many revelations from the Bible about “who we are” because of Christ.  Because the list is in high demand, I offer it here.

If you are in Christ, you can declare each of these truths with confidence
