Who I Am in Christ

I shared this in the sermon in our services this morning. It is from Scott Thomas and Tom Wood, who write of "a list of these positional promises...to remind me who I am declared to be in the Word of God. Even though I do not always feel this way, these Scriptures remind me of who I am in Christ.

Through Christ, I am dead to sin (Romans 6:11).
Through Christ, I am spiritually alive (Romans 6:11; 1 Corinthians 15:22).
Through Christ, I am forgiven (Colossians 2:13; 1 John 2:12).
Through Christ, I am declared righteous (1 Corinthians 1:30; 2 Corinthians 5:21).
Through Christ, I am God’s possession (Titus 2:14).
Through Christ, I am an heir of God (Romans 8:17).
Through Christ, I am blessed with all spiritual blessing (Ephesians 1:3).
