Who Am I?
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)

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.
