Our Identity

“And in love he [God] chose us before he laid the foundation of the universe! Because of his great love, he ordained us, so that we would be seen as holy in his eyes with an unstained innocence. For it was always in his perfect plan to adopt us as his delightful children, through our union with Jesus, the Anointed One, so that his tremendous love that cascades over us would glorify his grace —for the same love he has for the Beloved, Jesus, he has for us. And this unfolding plan brings him great pleasure!” Ephesians 1:4-6 TPT

Our Identity

Before the world’s foundation
God ordained us to be
United with His son
Pure and Holy as One
Embraced in His heart
In His love for all time

Our home, our being, our identity
Is in Christ as Gods children for eternity

So we are what
God ordained us to be
United with His son
Pure and Holy as One
Embraced in His heart
In His love for all time

Our home, our being, our identity
Is in Christ as Gods children for eternity

This is all God’s work
His Grace and Glory
Evident in us
As His beloved family
We can never earn it
Just receive it and be

Our home, our being, our identity
Is in Christ as Gods children for eternity

So we are what
God ordained us to be
United with His son
Pure and Holy as One
Embraced in His heart
In His love for all time

Our home, our being, our identity
Is in Christ as Gods children for eternity

Glorious Entanglement

So here I am dead and alive at the same time. I’m dead to the old me I was trying to be and alive to the real me which is Christ in me. Co-crucified, now co-alive. What a glorious entanglement. I was in him in his death; now I discover that he is infused in me, in my life. For the first time, I’m free to be me in my skin, immersed in his faith in our joint-sonship. He loves me and believes in me. He is God’s gift to me. Galatians 2:20 Mirror Bible

The old me
I was trying to be
Sin entrapped
Striving to be free
Is now dead
Through Christ in me
Co-crucified
At Calvary

Christ in me
Entangled I be
With Jesus Christ
His life in me
Christ in me
Infused I be
With Jesus Christ
His life in me

A brand new me

With Christ in me
Infused fully
With His life completely

Christ in me
Entangled I be
With Jesus Christ
His life in me
Christ in me
Infused I be
With Jesus Christ
His life in me

Now I’m free
Me in my skin
For Jesus loves
And me believes in
Through His faith
In our joint son-ship
I live in this
Glorious entanglement

Christ in me
Entangled I be
With Jesus Christ
His life in me
Christ in me
Infused I be

God’s gift to me
Is a life set free

Whispers

“And you did not receive the “spirit of religious duty,” leading you back into the fear of never being good enough. But you have received the “Spirit of full acceptance,” enfolding you into the family of God. And you will never feel orphaned, for as he rises up within us, our spirits join him in saying the words of tender affection, “Beloved Father!” For the Holy Spirit makes God’s fatherhood real to us as he whispers into our innermost being, “You are God’s beloved child!” And since we are his true children, we qualify to share all his treasures, for indeed, we are heirs of God himself. And since we are joined to Christ, we also inherit all that he is and all that he has. We will experience being co-glorified with him provided that we accept his sufferings as our own.”
Romans 8:15-17 TPT

The spirit of religious duty
Has no claim on us
For it cannot make us worthy
To be children of God’s
It can only bind us
To loads we cannot lift
And bury us in graves
For it has no life to give

But now we have received
God’s Spirit of full acceptance
Enfolding each of us
Into the family of God’s essence
We need never feel orphaned
For He rises up within us
With us crying “Beloved Father”
Giving God our true affection

And He whispers night and day
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
There’s nothing you need to earn
Nothing of God’s has He withheld
Jesus has made you righteous
Holy and blameless in His sight
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
“You are God’s Beloved Child”

I can listen to the voices
Of those who would condemn
The Father of Lies
And the messengers he sends
Or I can turn my ears
To God’s enfolding Holy Spirit
To hear His truth whispers
That I am fully accepted

And He whispers night and day
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
There’s nothing you need to earn
Nothing of God’s has He withheld
Jesus has made you righteous
Holy and blameless in His sight
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
“You are God’s Beloved Child”

If I examine my self
Thinking to look for sin
There is nothing left to find
For Jesus took it all on Him
And gave me instead
The righteousness of God
So can fit right in
As God’s Beloved Child

And He whispers night and day
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
There’s nothing you need to earn
Nothing of God’s has He withheld
Jesus has made you righteous
Holy and blameless in His sight
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
“You are God’s Beloved Child”

If I do good works
As a child of God would do
It does not change my position
For no higher can I go
Now I’m a Child of God
Co-heir and one with Christ
Reigning by God’s side
I am with His fullness blessed

And He whispers night and day
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
There’s nothing you need to earn
Nothing of God’s has He withheld
Jesus has made you righteous
Holy and blameless in His sight
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
“You are God’s Beloved Child”

For we have now received
God’s Spirit of full acceptance
Enfolding each of us
Into the family of God’s essence
We need never feel orphaned
For He rises up within us
With us crying “Beloved Father”
Giving God our true affection

And He whispers night and day
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
There’s nothing you need to earn
Nothing of God’s has He withheld
Jesus has made you righteous
Holy and blameless in His sight
“You are God’s Beloved Child”
“You are God’s Beloved Child”

The Gift

“Our faith in Jesus transfers God’s righteousness to us and he now declares us flawless in his eyes. This means we can now enjoy true and lasting peace with God, all because of what our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, has done for us. Our faith guarantees us permanent access into this marvelous kindness that has given us a perfect relationship with God. What incredible joy bursts forth within us as we keep on celebrating our hope of experiencing God’s glory!”
Romans 5:1-2 TPT

Jesus death and resurrection
As a human being
Have given us peace with God
Lasting for eternity
Now I can relax
I no longer need to strive
I’m fully acceptable to God
Because of Jesus’ life

God’s righteousness
Jesus transfers to me
So now in God’s eyes
I live flawlessly
Obeying God’s Law
Is now no burden for me
For His Law of Love
Is now the core of my being

Jesus has given to me
His access to God
To live in His marvellous kindness
The generosity of His Love
There is nothing God holds back
From His Beloved Son
All is for His Children too
Now we are all as One

His unity with God
A perfect relationship
Completion for my soul

Cascading Righteousness

“But now, independently of the law, the righteousness of God is tangible and brought to light through Jesus, the Anointed One. This is the righteousness that the Scriptures prophesied would come. It is God’s righteousness made visible through the faithfulness of Jesus Christ. And now all who believe in him receive that gift. For there is really no difference between us, Yet through his powerful declaration of acquittal, God freely gives away his righteousness. His gift of love and favour now cascades over us, all because Jesus, the Anointed One, has liberated us from the guilt, punishment, and power of sin!”
“And when the season of tolerance came to an end, there was only one possible way for God to give away his righteousness and still be true to both his justice and his mercy—to offer up his own Son. So now, because we stand on the faithfulness of Jesus, God declares us righteous in his eyes!” Romans 3:21-22, 24, 26 TPT

Your Righteousness, Your Righteousness
Cascading over, in and through us
Your image in us restored through this gift
Of Your Love and Favour, God Magnificent

You saw we were bound and damaged by our sin
Powerless to change without true healing
You gave us Your Law to reveal the mess we’re in
But we thought we could obey it and missed the mark again

So You sent us Your Son, one with us in human flesh
To reveal Your image, alive as one of us
He loved, forgave and taught and healed as Your true Son
But we failed to understand, let Him on a cross be hung

One with us, Jesus died, and sinful mankind died with Him
As He took the punishment for all of mankind’s sin
But Your Love and Righteousness were too powerful for death
So as One, Your Holy Spirit raised us up again to life

Your Righteousness, Your Righteousness
Cascading over, in and through us
Your image in us restored through this gift
Of Your Love and Favour, God Magnificent

Raised to new life with Christ, to reign at Your Right Hand
We have become full Sons of God and His co-Heirs
The faithfulness of Jesus You have gifted to us
So we can be restored by Your Powerful Righteousness

Your Righteousness, Your Righteousness
Cascading over, in and through us
Your image in us restored through this gift
Of Your Love and Favour, God Magnificent

Now as we rest in the faithfulness of Christ
Your Righteousness becomes ours for life
Empowering us to live as true Sons of God
Healed, restored in Your Image, in Your Faithful Word

Your Righteousness, Your Righteousness
Cascading over, in and through us
Your image in us restored through this gift
Of Your Love and Favour, God Magnificent

Liberating Righteousness

“I refuse to be ashamed of the wonderful message of God’s liberating power unleashed in us through Christ! For I am thrilled to preach that everyone who believes is saved—the Jew first, and then people everywhere! This gospel unveils a continual revelation of God’s righteousness—a perfect righteousness given to us when we believe. And it moves us from receiving life through faith, to the power of living by faith. This is what the Scripture means when it says: “We are right with God through life-giving faith!””
Romans 1:16-17 TPT

The power of Your Righteousness living in me
From sin and works God you have set me free
To be Your beloved child as I was meant to be
Righteous, as Your Image You recreate in me

Once I was a slave to sin
Though I knew it was wrong I so often gave in
I did not have the power to be
A child of God, in righteousness freed

But then You gave Your Son for me
To die my death, bring me to liberty
Raised to live in His resurrection life
I live through Your indwelling righteousness

The power of Your Righteousness living in me
From sin and works God you have set me free
To be Your beloved child as I was meant to be
Righteous, as Your Image You recreate in me

Once I believed that what I did
Would earn my place with You if I was good
Good works became my life and obsession
Till I burnt out from carrying that heavy burden

But then You gave Your Son for me
To die my death, bring me to liberty
Raised to live in His resurrection life
I live through Your indwelling righteousness

The power of Your Righteousness living in me
From sin and works God you have set me free
To be Your beloved child as I was meant to be
Righteous, as Your Image You recreate in me

Now I daily rejoice in Your righteousness
Empowering me to make better choices
I can rest in knowing if I still make mistakes
The power of Your righteousness will all else erase

The power of Your Righteousness living in me
From sin and works God you have set me free
To be Your beloved child as I was meant to be
Righteous, as Your Image You recreate in me

Your righteousness is now my strength and joy
Enabling me Your real Presence to enjoy
We can laugh and talk and chat as One
Because You’ve made me Yours through the life of Your Son

The power of Your Righteousness living in me
From sin and works God you have set me free
To be Your beloved child as I was meant to be
Righteous, as Your Image You recreate in me

Now as the life of Your Son lives in me
I can relax as part of Your Family
I can enjoy all that Sonship entails
What’s Yours is now mine through Jesus Christ

The power of Your Righteousness living in me
From sin and works God you have set me free
To be Your beloved child as I was meant to be
Righteous, as Your Image You recreate in me

My suggestion would be to take one of these verses and use it as a mantra (a statement repeated frequently) for a meditation with God or throughout your day as a form of worship.

Anchored

“And now we have run into his heart to hide ourselves in his faithfulness. This is where we find his strength and comfort, for he empowers us to seize what has already been established ahead of time—an unshakable hope! We have this certain hope like a strong, unbreakable anchor holding our souls to God himself. Our anchor of hope is fastened to the mercy seat in the heavenly realm beyond the sacred threshold, and where Jesus, our forerunner, has gone in before us. He is now and forever our royal Priest like Melchizedek.” Hebrews 6:18b-20 TPT

His son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against both heaven and you, and I am no longer worthy of being called your son.’ “But his father said to the servants, ‘Quick! Bring the finest robe in the house and put it on him. Get a ring for his finger and sandals for his feet. And kill the calf we have been fattening. We must celebrate with a feast, for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.’ So the party began. “Meanwhile, the older son was in the fields working. When he returned home, he heard music and dancing in the house, ‘Your brother is back,’ he was told, ‘and your father has killed the fattened calf. We are celebrating because of his safe return.’ “The older brother was angry and wouldn’t go in. His father came out and begged him, “His father said to him, ‘Look, dear son, you have always stayed by me, and everything I have is yours. We had to celebrate this happy day. For your brother was dead and has come back to life! He was lost, but now he is found!’””
