You Are

You Are

by Pastor Mark Shupe

From time to time I find myself in need of being reminded of my true identity as a believer in Christ. Read through the following Scriptures and allow the truth of God to uplift your soul.

YOU AREu2026

A Child of Godu00a0- John 1:12

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name.

A Friend of Jesusu00a0- John 15:15

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his masteru2019s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.


Redeemedu00a0- Romans 3:24u00a0

Being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus.


No Longer Condemnedu00a0- Romans 8:1

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.


Free From Sin and Deathu00a0- Romans 8:2

Because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.


A Temple of the Holy Spiritu00a0- 1 Corinthians 6:19

Donu2019t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself.


A Transformed Personu00a0- 2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here!


Forgivenu00a0- Ephesians 1:7

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of Godu2019s grace.


God’s Handiworku00a0- Ephesians 2:10

For we are Godu2019s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.


A Citizen of Heavenu00a0- Philippians 3:20

But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.


Provided Foru00a0- Philippians 4:19

And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.


Lovedu00a0- 1 Thessalonians 1:4

For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that He has chosen you.

No Greater Love

God’s love for us was manifested in the death and sacrifice of Christ on the cross where Jesus satisfied and fully appeased the penalty due to us for our sins. This was the ultimate act of love Jesus modeled not only for the disciples, but for everyone.

What is good about Good Friday?

very year we contemplate the events that surround the crucifixion of Jesus… and every year we’re left wondering, “What is good about Good Friday?”
