Freedom: Discovering Your Identity in Christ


John 8:32 & Ephesians 1:3-14

Behind every sin is a lie; behind every lie is a fear.

I am not who others say I am, I am who God says I am.

      1. I am chosen, predestined, loved, and adopted.

                I am freed from the fear of rejection.

                I am freed to love God and people.

      2. I am redeemed, forgiven, and grace.

                I am freed from the fear of inadequacy.

                I am freed to give grace to others.

      3. I am included, secure, and forever identified as God’s own.

                I am freed from the fear of insecurity.

                I am freed to trust and be vulnerable.

Real freedom comes when we learn to live in the truth of what God says.
