You Are Not Your Sins
I know how it feels. You look in the mirror, and you question how you have gotten to this place. You know longer see yourself as redeemed but dirty and sinful. Your identity has become sinner once again. Sweet girl, let me tell you how wrong you are. From the wise words of a great friend "You're just as righteous in Christ as I am." You see, you already have laid down your old identity and claimed a new one in Christ.
We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. - and having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.
Nothing you do can change that fact. You are righteous. Christ already saved you. He does not have to do it again. Look, I have been in your spot, and I know it is not easy. I've sinned and allowed my shame to drown me. I tried to find my identity in everything but Christ. However, I already surrendered to God. His grace already was covering me. My identity was and is solely found in Jesus Christ.
Today, what are you allowing yourself to think is your identity?
I urge you to search yourself and knock out all the wrong identities! Find yourself in your loving Father. Darling, you are still righteous. You are still a child of God. Here is your reminder:
1 John 3:1-2
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
P.s The time is now to find your identity in Christ. It is pretty empowering.
