Your new identity (in Christ)

If you are saved and are in Christ, then when the Father looks at you, He looks through His Son, as if you were “wearing Jesus.” He looks at you and sees Jesus’ holiness and righteousness. Whether or not you think this or feel that this is true doesn’t change the reality that God, when He looks at you, sees you with a new identity.

All these things are true about your identity in Christ – they have already happened:
