Did you know the enemy most likely has a better grasp of who you are in Christ than you do?
Roughly 2 years ago, a couple of dear friends helped me realize this. Daily they would remind me who I am in Christ. Constantly telling me I’m holy, righteous and redeemed. And you know what? Over time I started to believe it. Maybe that’s what it means to set your mind on things above.
Here are the scriptures my buddies were constantly pouring over me.
I believe if you stand around truth long enough, it just might change you. So by all means, stay a while. The truth has certainly changed me!
