July 26: Identity in Christ

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
2 Corinthians 5:17

You don’t know your true identity until you discover who you are in Christ.

Discovering who you are in Christ is one of the foundational realities of being a follower of Jesus. Until you see yourself in Christ, you will never know yourself. If you don’t know yourself, you can’t be yourself. If you can’t be yourself, you can’t live.

Because you are in Christ, the better you come to know Christ, the better you know yourself.

Loving Father, I am in Christ. Today as I seek Christ, I expect to discover my true self.

This daily Christ-encountering, fire-starter is not intended to replace your daily Bible reading and prayer time, but rather to motivate you to spend extended time in His presence.
