 Are You a Christian? A Sermon on Identity in Christ


Let' s reflect on our identity as Christians. Being a Christian is not merely a title or a label; it is a profound reality that shapes every aspect of our lives. Let us explore what it truly means to be a Christian, drawing from the Scriptures to understand the various facets of our identity in Christ.

1: Member of the Body (1 Corinthians 12:13)

As Christians, we are united as members of the body of Christ. Just as the body has many parts with different functions, so too are we interconnected with fellow believers, each contributing to the health and vitality of the body.

2: Citizen of the Kingdom (John 3:3, 5; Matthew 18:3)

Through faith in Christ, we become citizens of the kingdom of God. Jesus teaches us that unless we are born again, we cannot see or enter the kingdom of God. As citizens of God's kingdom, we are called to live by its values and principles.

3: A Child in the Family of God (John 3:3, 5; Galatians 3:26-27)

Through spiritual rebirth, we are adopted as children into the family of God. Just as Jesus told Nicodemus that one must be born of water and the Spirit to enter the kingdom of God, so too are we made children of God through faith in Christ.

4: A Sheep in the Fold (Acts 20:28; John 10:1ff)

Jesus is the Good Shepherd who lays down His life for His sheep. As His sheep, we are part of His flock, receiving His care, guidance, and protection. Our identity as sheep highlights our dependence on the shepherd for our safety and well-being.

5: Soldier in the Lord's Army (2 Timothy 2:3-4; Ephesians 6:10-20)

We are called to be soldiers in the Lord's army, fighting against the forces of darkness and standing firm in the truth. Just as Paul encourages Timothy to endure hardship as a good soldier of Christ, so too are we called to take up the armor of God and engage in spiritual warfare.

6: A Worker in the Vineyard (Matthew 20:1-16)

As Christians, we are laborers in the Lord's vineyard, called to work diligently for His kingdom. Whether we are called early or late in life, we are all invited to participate in the work of God's kingdom, bearing fruit for His glory.

7: A Branch on the Vine (John 15:1-8)

Jesus is the true vine, and we are the branches. Our identity as branches reminds us of our intimate connection to Christ and our dependence on Him for spiritual nourishment and fruitfulness. Apart from Him, we can do nothing.

8: A Priest in the Temple (1 Peter 2:5-9)

Through Christ, we are a royal priesthood, called to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God. Our identity as priests underscores our role in worship, intercession, and service to God and others.

9: A Stone in the Building (1 Peter 2:5; 1 Corinthians 3:9)

We are living stones being built into a spiritual house, with Christ as the cornerstone. Our identity as stones in the building highlights our participation in God's ongoing work of building His church and advancing His kingdom.

10: Member of the Bride of Christ (Romans 7:4; Ephesians 5:25-33)

Finally, we are members of the bride of Christ, called to be united with Him in a covenant relationship of love and devotion. Just as a husband loves his wife sacrificially, so too does Christ love and cherish His bride, the church.
