20 Bible Verses To Remind You Of Your Identity In Christ

In the midst of our busy lives—juggling work, family, friendships, and countless responsibilities—it’s so easy to lose sight of who we truly are. As a Christian woman, your true identity in Christ is firmly rooted in Him, yet we all need reminders of this truth at times.

Thankfully, the Bible is full of verses that not only affirm our identity in Him but also offer wisdom and strength.

20 Bible Verses To Remind You Of Your Identity In Christ

I want to share some key Bible verses to remind us who we are in Christ Jesus. These Scriptures are like love letters from God, helping to anchor us in His everlasting love and His purpose for each of us. If you’re facing challenges, in need of encouragement, or fighting the urge to compare with others, these verses are here to inspire and encourage you.

So, take a deep breath, grab a cup of tea (or coffee!), and let’s dive into these beautiful reminders of your identity in Christ. 

In Christ I Am A New Creation

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. (NLT)

Ephesians 2:10

If you have accepted Jesus as you Savior, you have been remade, made new. This was accomplished by God and His Son Jesus on the cross, and there is nothing you can do to minimize that. Going to church, following rules, doing good works, or being a nice person – none of these things can make you any more saved than Christ’s sacrifice. 

When you have been born again as a Christian, you have a fresh start in all of life. Whether you are a new Christian or a seasoned believer, a Christ-follower is constantly growing, surrendering more to God’s will, growing in God’s wisdom, and trusting Him more. You will think differently than you used to, with a fresh outlook on every part of your life. 

When we realize what we have been rescued from, saved from ourselves and from our selfish sins, and growing in Christ, we will show it in many ways. Being a part of the body of Christ (the church), is just the beginning. A hunger to know more about God, kindness from the heart, striving to always do the right thing – these are some examples of change that comes out of a great love for the Lord and for His people. 

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! (NLT)

2 Corinthians 5:17

God’s Word says you are a new creation because your heart and your mind have made an almost unbelievable change. As God’s girl, you get to claim your new identity without hesitation. 

Below is a list of promises from the Bible about who you are once you have experienced Christ’s saving grace. I’ve written a short piece about each one and included several Bible verses that you can hold onto. 

In Christ I Am A Child Of God

In the Beginning, God made humans in His own image. So then, if we are made in the image of God, we were obviously meant to be His image-bearers, reflecting His nature and character to all of creation. 

When we are the birth child of a parent, we carry many of their qualities, personality, and 50 percent of their DNA. We are image-bearers of our birth parents in many ways. As God’s children (whether by birth or by adoption) we are expected to display His image to the world we live in, the people around us. 

But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God. (NLT)

John 1:12-13
For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus. (NLT)

Galatians 3:26

In Christ I Have A God-Given Purpose

When God made us in His own image, He had plans for us. He gave us gifts so that we could do His work on earth. And He will never give up on us. He will continue equipping us for His work as long as we are on the earth. God intends all along for us to bear fruit. Galatians 5 tells us of the fruit of the Spirit. 

The purposes he has for us are not just for our good, but to glorify God. Our purposes are based on God-given gifts that we will use to reflect the glory of God to others, bringing others to Him and causing His glory to shine wherever we go and through all of His children throughout the world. 

God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.  (NLT)

1 Peter 4:10 
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. (NLT)

Philippians 1:6

We did not invent our own image, God did. Many people will try to invent their image and determine their own purposes, searching to bring glory to themselves and gain satisfaction in external things that will in actuality, disappoint every time. 

You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit, fruit that won’t spoil. As fruit bearers, whatever you ask the Father in relation to me, he gives you. But remember the root command: Love one another. (MSG)

John 15:16

In Christ I Am No Longer Controlled By Sin

...assuming that you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus, to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness. (ESV)

Ephesians 4:21-24

When you were made new, your new self is considered righteous, since your former sins were all washed away by the blood of Jesus. You are no longer convicted of the guilt you once carried. You have a brand new start. 

Of course, no human being remains sinless. We all fail in many ways and fall short of God’s righteousness. 

But the good news is that since the Holy Sprit came to live in you at your salvation, He will be your conscience, and will tell you internally when you’re entering a danger zone and need to resist a temptation. He will give you a way out of the temptation. 

If you have committed a sin, which we all do regularly, the Holy Spirit will prompt you to stop and repent, so that you can ask God’s forgiveness for it and turn away from the sin.

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.  For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. (ESV)

Romans 8:1-2

You now live under the power of the Holy Spirit, not the power of sin. 

For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” (ESV)

Romans 8:15

In Christ I Have A Solid Foundation

The world is an uncertain place. Every day we hear of bad news, disasters, political upheaval, and negativity. But when we have Jesus, we have the reassurance of certainty. Yes, God’s promises can be believed, and God’s truth will never change. His power can never be overthrown. 

It is God who enables us, along with you, to stand firm for Christ. He has commissioned us, and he has identified us as his own by placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts as the first installment that guarantees everything he has promised us.(NLT)

2 Corinthians 1:21-22
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. (NLT)

2 Timothy 1:7

Because of God’s grace, followers of Christ have nothing to fear. We are promised His hand of protection because we are God’s special possession., 

We know that God's children do not make a practice of sinning, for God's Son holds them securely, and the evil one cannot touch them. We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the control of the evil one. (NLT)

1 John 5:18-19

The foundation of the world may be shaken, but God is our solid foundation. We don’t need to fear because we have the promise that the kingdom of God is secure. Because of Jesus Christ, our firm foundation, we have the promise of  eternal life. 

Since we are receiving a kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe. (NLT)

Hebrews 12:28
But God's truth stands firm like a foundation stone with this inscription: "The Lord knows those who are his," and "All who belong to the Lord must turn away from evil." (NLT)

2 Timothy 2:19

In Christ I Am Loved

We are God’s special possession, loved beyond measure. From beginning to end, He has given us the message of His love. Jesus is the proof of how much He loves us. 

It’s hard to realize the vast extent of God’s love for us, especially in light of our mistakes, our bad choices, our failures, our sins. But His love is always reaching for us, even when we’ve failed. Our heavenly Father wants a personal relationship with us. He delights in us. 

See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him (NLT)

1 John 3:1
The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing. (NIV)

Zephaniah 3:17
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (NLT)

Romans 5:8
But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) (NLT)

Ephesians 2:4-5

Even when we’ve failed Him, ourselves, and others, He is ready and waiting for us to repent, offering us complete forgiveness of sins because of His amazing grace and His glorious love. 

Even then. 

Isn’t He wonderful?

Celebrate Your Identity In Christ

The fact is, sometimes our feelings lead us away from the fact that we are God’s beloved, and the world would have us doubt God’s love. However, as Christians, neither our feelings nor the world should be our guide. There will be days that we need to be reminded that we are God’s handiwork, precious and priceless in His eyes. Copy these verses, memorize them, or whatever you need to do to keep these reminders close to your heart.
