The following verses are taken from Ephesians 1 – 3.  They are some basic truths about who you are in Christ that can be used to counteract Satan’s lies.  This is your true ID in God’s eyes!

In the book of Ephesians, God tells us:

1:3       I am blessed with every spiritual blessing – I’m not  lacking.

1:4       I was Chosen before the foundation of the world.  God picked me to be on His team!

1:6       God’s grace is freely given to me (see 1:8).

1:7       Redemption/forgiveness is found through Christ’s sacrifice.   When the enemy says: Some of your sins were too bad for God to forgive… It’s a lie.

1:8       His grace is lavished on me.  Over-abundance poured on me.

1:9       The mystery of His will revealed to me.  He sometimes lets me in on His secret!

1:11     I have an inheritance.  (see 1:13,18)

1:13     I am Sealed in Him with Holy Spirit – down payment/pledge of inheritance.

1:18     I have a rich inheritance.  There’s nothing here on earth that can compare.  “Eye has not seen…”

1:19     I get to witness His surpassing great power toward me.

2:1,3    I WAS a child of wrath; dead in my sins…but I am now ALIVE!

2:4       God’s love toward me is great.  I must be pretty special.

2:5       I’m made alive in Christ.

2:6       I’m Raised up with Christ and seated with Christ in the heavenly places.

2:7       I am a trophy of God’s grace.

2:8       I’m a recipient of the gift of God.

2:10     I am God’s workmanship.

2:13     I am now brought near to Christ and His promises.

2:18     I have access to the Father through Christ.

2:19     I’m a fellow citizen with the saints and I’m in God’s household.

2:21     I’m growing into a holy temple in the Lord.  v.22 a dwelling place of God.

3:6       I’m a  member of God’s family and a a recipient of Christ’s promises.

3:12     I have bold and confident access to the Father because of what Christ has done.

3:20     God is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that I ask or think.
