Author Trey'von Knowles, In Him I Stand shows you that your identity shapes your beliefs. We will learn who we are in Christ and how we should exemplify the character of God by how we live. Identity -the way we perceive ourselves- is what shapes our core beliefs. Those core beliefs in turn drive what we think, say and do. Everyone has a worldly identity -and also a spiritual identity. 1 John 3:10 tells us that everyone is either a child of God or a child of the Devil. We Christians know that we are children of God, but there is much more to our identity than that. Each of us has been made into a new creation by God Himself -hence the term "born again." That new creation -with its new identity- comes with a description of who we are. Once and for all, we have been forgiven, declared innocent (justified) of all wrong doing, made holy (sanctified), and become Jesus' brothers and joint heirs of God's kingdom, given the righteousness of God, translated out of darkness into His light, changed from being God's enemy to being His friend, joined with Christ eternally as His bride, and so much more.
