It’s tempting to base your identity in Christ on what you do for him: going to church, reading the Bible, etc. While these are good things, they can’t determine our identity because, at the end of the day, they’re things we accomplish.

In reality, your identity in Christ is based on the things he’s done for you. An identity based in God’s truth will not falter, because his word is flawless and trustworthy (Proverbs 30:5). Here are 31 truths from scripture that affirm your identity:
