Ah… The questions so often feel my mind: Who am I? What does being a Christian college student mean in this day and age? What is the purpose to life?
Though not complete, here is a short list of who we are in Christ. As Christians, we have taken upon ourselves the identity of Christ. His perfection, becomes our own.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” 2 Cor. 5:17
Newness… It is the cry of a child as they breath in their first breath of air. It is the unfolding of a butterflies wings for the first time. It is the changing of night to day. The old being thrown aside as a newness is embraced.
Dear brother or sister, in Christ you are a new creation. The past is in the past. It is not you anymore. You are freed from it. Those sins that you are ashamed of, they too are wiped away, a tale from the past.
“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9
You are royal.
You are chosen.
You are called.
You are holy.
You are in His light.
