Who Am I?

As you journey on the path of learning about your self-identity, it is critical that you focus on how God sees you.  If left to the world’s definition of who you are, you will always fall short.  But instead of the world’s definition you instead focus on the truth – your identity as God has defined you – then you will learn more about God and learn more about you in relationship with him.  Then, you will enjoy a peace that passes all understanding and start experiencing the joy of being happy in “your own skin.” 

The following is a borrowed list of different Bible verses that can help you on the journey of self-discovery of who you are in Christ.
