now you are God’s people.
1 Peter 2:10 NLT
We hear it all the time: Identity thieves are out to steal your information. Protect yourself. This causes us to be more alert and do whatever we can to keep this from happening.
Chris Tiegreen says:
God has given you a new identity, but it will be roundly attacked from every side. Resolutely insist on the identity God gave you in Christ. Refuse to be swayed, distracted, or even questioned. What God has affirmed, let no one even dare try to undermine. You are who you are because He said so. Live in your true, God-given identity as His child, a new creation, a member of a royal priesthood, and more. The Father is well pleased with His children, and no unholy voice can convince Him otherwise.
Be secure in who you are. You are in Him. His child. His beloved. Saved. Redeemed. The righteousness of God in Christ. Seated in heavenly places. More than a conqueror. A joint heir with Jesus. That’s the way God sees you and the way He wants you to see yourself.
