It is important to know who you are in Christ. You need to know what God promises you and what He asks you to do. If you don’t know the truth, you’ll believe the lie – that you aren’t good enough, that things will never change and that there’s nothing you can do about that.

We have a great freedom in Christ because He has redeemed us, saved us and loved us  – even when we were unlovable.
