As we look at Colossians 1:9-14, we see how these words apply to those trusting in Christ.
When you trust in Christ, your identity changes. If you want this change in identity, ask God for it.
When your identity is in Christ, God says who you are. You are able to know God’s will. You can’t know God’s mind, but you can know what God has in mind. You have wisdom from God, and can understand God’s movement. You are able to please God. You are able to live a life that matter. You are able to become strong in the faith.
Your identity comes entirely from God alone. You have this identity only by the grace of God. All you have that is of worth comes from God.

God’s not done with our bodies when we die.
The physical resurrection of our bodies seems to be something humans struggle to believe in. The Bible is full of evidence concerning a physical resurrection. The tomb of Jesus is empty. The resurrected Jesus has substance.
Jesus’ body was recognizable. Our bodies will be recognizable. Jesus’ body was something you could feel. Our bodies will be capable of touching and being touched. Jesus’ body could eat. Our bodies will be capable of eating. Jesus’ body will never wear out. Our bodies will never wear out.
When we trusted Christ, we were made alive. Christ’s sacrifice makes you new. You can begin to live a new life. Live like a newly enlivened being!
