It's the new year.

We're all swamped with new plans, new school schedules, new agendas. And it can be very easy to get so wrapped up in all those things that we forget who we really are.

If you are a planner like me, it can be really easy to focus your worth on how much you accomplish, how much you work out, how well you eat, how much you get done in a day. You may even measure your Christianity by how much you do "for" Christ, how much you read your Bible.

At the end of the day, we all need to be reminded by who we are.

We aren't all the things we do.

We aren't all we accomplish in the day.

We aren't the untrue things we tell ourself, the doubts we throw on our self-worth. We aren't the hurtful things that have been said to us, the pains in our past, or the mistakes we have made.

The Bible has much to say about who we are in Him. If you get the chance, I recommend you listen to Who You Say I Am by Hillsong.

And here are 10 truths taken from Ephesians 4 about who you are in Christ. If you can, read the whole chapter!

  1. You are chosen before the foundation of the world
  2. You are accepted in the beloved.
  3. You are partaker of God's promises.
  4. You are loved.
  5. You are the Church.
  6. You are redeemed.
  7. You are a saint of God.
  8. You are His workmanship.
  9. You are predestined unto adoption.
  10. You are blessed with all spiritual blessings.

Write these truths down. Memorize them. Never forget that you are who Christ says you are.
