WHO YOU ARE
“But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God.”
Becoming a believer is not like joining a party,denomination or association, it breaks the rigidity and self righteous requirements of religion. A believer is the best identity any one can have. Its God’s desire to make us that.
Our identity in Christ is received by accepting His gift of eternal life through faith. Jesus gave His life on earth and rose from the grave to conquer death and sanctify those who believe in Him. When we become followers and believers in Jesus, we lose our identity of this world and embrace our identity in Christ. Our identity in Christ is being a member of His body, the church; it is being joined with him as one.
For a person to identify with a kingdom you have to represent what the kingdom entails and in the case of a believer the kingdom of God which is in power and not in words alone according to 1cor 4:20 “for the kingdom of God is not in words but in power” and even apostle Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 1 vs 5(KJV)-“For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.”, he made them understand that the way the gospel came was a representation of the kingdom of God which is walking in power
Confidence and boldness is also a part of the identity a believer carries, a believer is always confident and bold when talking about and representing the kingdom of God here in this world; this was what was described in Acts 4:13 that even priests and Sadduces could deduce that Peter and John because of their boldness had been with Jesus and that was an identity that they were believers and this is how we also identify as believers, in our day to day life we should walk in the boldness of our identity in Christ
Walking in the wisdom of Christ is a part of the identity attributed to true believers, from the way you talk to the way you handle situations and solve problems and effectively communicate the scriptures. Wisdom is an integral part of a believers life that even the Bible attested to it as a principal thing proverbs 4 vs 7a
A believers identity speaks of them being a new creation being called out of darkness into his marvelous light and having the identity of power,boldness,confidence and wisdom amongst others and so it’s expedient that we find our identity as believers and also be known for it to others
