Who You Are


Be who you are in Christ Jesus

If your not sure who you are in Christ, the list below of scripture should give you a good idea. Kudos to the St. Padre Pio Center for Deliverance Counseling for the list. When the evil one tries to make you think you are nothing and God cares nothing for you, this list read each and every morning will remind him that he is the liar.

Every morning without fail I would recite this list out loud. Some days, shouting them. In this world, it is so easy to forget who we are and every morning, after or before prayers, its a good idea to remind ones self that no matter how lost we think we are, God knows exactly where and who we are. We need to remind ourselves daily, who we are. Outside of Mass, this is the best way I have learned.

  1. I am renewing daily devotions, from which I had gone astray during lent. I will recite this list both in my heart and aloud every morning in new daily devotions.
