Thirty-One Truths: Who I Am in Christ

Devotional

INTRODUCTION



Ephesians 1 and 2 can revolutionize our understanding of who we are in Christ. Why? Because it is the gospel! Spend the following 31 days developing the habit of taking the truths from these chapters to heart and become who you have been called to be—bring the gospel to life! I challenge you to daily take every thought captive and test and see if you are thinking, feeling, and living in light of these 31 truths.



Don’t be discouraged. Don’t procrastinate. Remember the power you have been given in Christ and replace any untruths with these truths from Ephesians and be radically transformed by the renewing of your mind. Look forward to living the rest of your days in the truths of who you are in Christ. He died that we might live.



Enjoy His life and His power and His righteousness and walk forward by faith in every spiritual blessing you have been given in Christ and bring glory to His name! Throughout the following weeks, prayerfully meditate upon who you are and thank the Lord. Imagine the lives of those around you who will be impacted as you fully receive every spiritual blessing you have been given. Thank you, Lord, for all we have been given in Christ!
