Identity

Forgiven. 

   The past is behind me. 

   The cross bore my sins.

   The future now filled with hope.

 

Redeemed.

    Bought at a great price.

    God’s perfect son sent to die.

    Perfection taking on imperfection, paving a way to the Father

 

Justified.

    No good thing within me apart from God

    Righteous not by my own failed attempts

    Right before God through His actions, not mine

 

Sanctified.

    Daily taking up my cross

    Dying to self and living in Christ

    Becoming more Christ like through the journey of life

 

Holy

    Set apart by God

    Ordained for a purpose

    An instrument for God to use in His Plan

 

Contrite

    Not sinless but blameless

    Not perfect but willing 

    Not depraved but honest
