Who we are in Christ It is so easy to only focus on who we are as fleshly humans. And our own capabilities. But in Christ we are so much more than that. Who we are in Christ is the things we need to be putting our focus on. Celebrating and embracing who we are in Him. And what we are through Him and because of Him. It will strengthen us, and make us bolder and stronger in the Lord, when we realize who we truly are now, and not who we were. We are anew creation! We are not of this world! We are no longer a slave to sin!! Praise the LORD!!
