We also learn from Scripture that we are temples of the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 says, "Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body." As believers, we have the Holy Spirit living within us. Our bodies are now sacred spaces dedicated to God's purposes.
These are just a few examples of what the Bible says we are in God. There are so many other aspects of our identity and purpose as humans that the Bible speaks to as well.
Let's look at a few of those today.
I am rightfully God's child
"But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God." John 1:12
I am bought with a price and I belong to God
"Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body." 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
I am set free by God from any condemnation
I am established and anointed by God
"And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put His seal on us and given us His Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee." 2 Corinthians 1:21-22
I am in God and I am His offspring
"In Him we live and move and have our being; as even some of your own poets have said, For we are indeed His offspring." Acts 17:28
I am redeemed and forgiven by God's grace
"In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace." Ephesians 1:7
I am an heir with purpose by God's will
" In Him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will." Ephesians 1:11
I am sealed by God's promise
"In Him you also, when you heard the Word of truth, the Gospel of your salvation, and believed in Him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit." Ephesians 1:13
I am a dwelling place for God's Spirit
"In Him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit." Eph. 2:22
I am made bold and confident through faith in God
"In whom we have boldness and access with confidence through our faith in Him." Eph. 3:12
