<p>(bracketed references below are to the Bible. Format is book, then chapter, then verse)</p>
<P>I, (your name here), called on Jesus Christ to be my Saviour and Lord. He heard me from Heaven, has accepted me, has forgiven my sins and prepared a place in Heaven for me.  As promised, He has made me acceptable to God the Father by his death, in my place, on the cross and by His resurrection. Because of what Jesus has done for me, I have therefore passed from death to life, from Satan's domain of darkness to God's Kingdom of Light. God loves me unconditionally and nothing I can do will make God love me more than he does now.  God will never reject me.  He calls me to obedience to Him and wants me to receive all the blessings He has for me.  He has also appointed me to be a witness to the truth about Jesus. </P>
<P>Since Jesus accepted me when I called on him, all the following verses in God's word, the Bible, are true about me.</P>
<P>I can always trust God, because Jesus said He is

I will have all my needs met by God (Philippians 4: 19)

If I should sin, whenever I confess it to Him He will forgive me (1 John 1: 9)

I am a child of God (John 1: 12)

I am Jesus' friend (John 15: 14)

I am chosen and appointed by Jesus to bear his fruit (John 15: 16)

I am a joint heir with Jesus, sharing his inheritance with Him (Romans 8: 17)

I am a temple - a dwelling place - of God. His spirit and his life live in me

(1 Corinthians 3: 16 and 6: 19)

I am a new creation, since I am in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5: 17)

I am a fellow citizen with the rest of God's family (Ephesians 2: 19)

I am chosen of God, holy and dearly loved (Colossians 3: 12 and 1 Thess 1: 4)

I can ask God for wisdom and He will give me what I need (James 1: 5)

I can always know the presence of God, since He will never leave me. (Hebrews 13: 5)

I am a child of light and not of darkness (1 Thessalonians 5: 5)

I am an enemy of the devil (1 Peter 5: 8)

Because you are in Christ, every one of the above descriptions is true of you. You can make these more meaningful and productive in your life by simply choosing to believe what God has said about you. One of the greatest ways to grow in maturity as a Christian is to constantly remind yourself who you are as a Christian. The Bible is where you find your true identity in Him.

Read the above list every day for a couple of weeks, preferably out loud to yourself. The more you take on board who you are in Christ, the more your behaviour will reflect your true Christian identity.
