This week’s memory verse from Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is 1 John 4:17. This verse says that as Jesus is, so are we – that in this world, we are like Him!
When we look at ourselves, we see our mistakes, our failures, and our imperfections. When God looks at us, He sees the righteousness and perfection of His Son covering us. You are not who you once were! You are a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17). You are in Christ. He is your new identity!
As Jesus is, so are you! As He is accepted by God, so are you! As He is loved by the Father, so are you! As He is in perfect right standing before the Most High, so are you! As He is free from sickness, fear, depression, discouragement, despair, and anxiety at God’s right hand, so are you!This freedom is available to you for the taking – receive it!
Begin to view yourself in this light. See yourself as God sees you. Find your identity in Christ!
