I am…

In the book Thin Within there is a list of scripture that tells Who I am In Christ. I am not sure where this list initially came from as it’s just a list based on scripture, but I wanted to give credit for it now as I plan to post a scripture a day from this list and really think about what these identities mean, should mean, don’t mean to me.

They are on pages 125-127 of Thin Within. I will probably be using a variety of versions of the Bible to understand what the verses mean to me. I will definitely be using the Bible Gateway to do this research.

[ETA this list so BK can preview 🙂 And will link to each of the discussions…of course]
