Where a Christian’s identity really comes from
Christians get their identity from God
In 1 Corinthians 2:7, the Apostle Paul says, “…we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory…” So, when someone calls you “dumb,” as a Christian, you have to know that they’re contradicting God and the Bible.
Through Christ, Christians are given a new identity in Christ. This new identity gives them the strength to destroy the works of the devil. But, if they believe lies about themselves by hosting thoughts of lust, anger, resentment, bitterness, and racism in their minds, they can lose the strength and become susceptible to the attacks of the devil.
“You have to understand: your thinking is a conversation with the Holy Spirit or a conversation with the spiritual forces of darkness…” said Miles.
In your head – who’s voice are you listening to?
Identify an area of your thought life that you need to bring into captivity to the obedience of Christ. Ask God to give you the strength to hear, believe, and entertain only what comes from the Holy Spirit.
