Who I am in Christ

-->
Who I am in Christ
My friend Ron Jensen introduced me to this list of affirmations. We were in a small Spiritual Growth group and would recite these affirmations every week. We would replace “I” with our personal name so it read, Robert is God’s child. Then my wife would say, “Donna is Christ’s friend." We would continue that until all of us had used our own names numerous times until the entire list was complete. It was very affirming and helped us secure our emotional state so we could take the next steps of confession.
