Knowing who you are in Christ is important; it is a required to having the right attitude towards the challenges you might face in this life, and living above all circumstances. There are many that are not enjoying the blessings of Christianity, because they don’t know who they are in Christ; they don’t understand who the Christian is.
Some think a Christian is a religious person; someone who goes to church; no! He is much more. A Christian is someone in whom Christ dwells; someone in whom, and by whom, the Kingdom of God is manifested; a carrier of divinity. Once you come to terms with this reality, your life will take on a new meaning, and you will live joyfully every day, irrespective and independent of circumstances.
It is so vital you understand God’s Word, what He says about you, and then live accordingly. The Bible says Jesus was not only delivered to death on account of your sins, He was also raised for your justification (Romans 4:25). It means to be declared “not guilty”; meaning that in the mind of justice, in the eyes of God, you never sinned before; so, no charges against you.
Now you can further appreciate why the Bible says you are holy, unblameable and unreproveable in the sight of God (Colossians 1:22). It is because the Christian is a new creature: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
You’re a new species of being that never existed before; that is why God can declare you acquitted, because there’s nothing to judge since you have a brand new life. Your justification isn’t because Jesus “paid” for your sins; He did that for the whole world of sinners, but the Christian is not a sinner; he is a new creation; a product, not of the death and burial of Jesus Christ, but of His resurrection!
You came from the resurrection. You’re the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, graced to reign and exercise dominion over Satan and circumstances. Hallelujah!
