Who Am I? pt.2

the following has been adapted by material from Neil T Anderson

A few days ago we posted a list of who we are in Christ. These statements further describe our new identity. Read this list, and the other, until it becomes a part of you. It is imperative to your spiritual growth and maturity that you believe God’s truth about who you are.
