Discovering who you are In Christ. Romans 8 Verse 1 Refers to being in Christ and the original meaning for’ In’ here is ‘enveloped’ In Christ.
Many Christians have never really discovered who they are. It is the truth that frees us, but what exactly is truth? Truth is whatever God says, and that truth is embodied in the Lord Jesus Christ. However, the truth does not free you until you know it. It matters not how true the truth is nor how many wonderful truths there are in the Bible for they will not liberate or set you free until you personally know those truths.
Many Christians do not understand the truth of whom they are in Christ and have never really understood their self-image. Since they do not know what they have in Christ, they are never, ever really liberated. The truth is what God says, not what you think or feel about it. It is truth if God says it, but it will never set you free until you know the truth.
There is a different between knowing about, and Knowing, Christ Jesus as Lord and Friend.
When you are able to see that God already loves you—loves you now even though you are imperfect, even though in your own stature there are faults and failures and foibles, you are the righteousness of God in Christ. God has blessed you with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
When you understand who you are in Christ, you will have a godly personality and an incredible self-image.
