Your new identity
The very second you became a Christian, things changed. You were born again, you became a new creation (2 Cor 5:17). You are now a saint not a sinner! In most of Paul’s letters, he writes to the believers as saints in the town.
You have a new identity! You have been transferred from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light (Ephesians 5:8) and are now a citizen of heaven.
Here are some Bible verses to help you begin to grasp your new identity in Christ. Look up each one and meditate on them…

John 15:15 As a disciple, I am a friend of Jesus Christ.
Rom 5:1 I have been justified.
