We’ve been hearing messages from the Book of Ephesians on Sunday morning at church. We’re learning that sometimes we place labels on ourselves that are false and what glorious labels we have received from God. It’s been a great message series.


???????????????????????????????In March of this year, I made the decision to lead the study “Me, Myself and Lies” by Jennifer Rothschild. This particular study was a life-changer for me several years ago, so I wondered if it might not make a difference in another woman’s life. I believe I was right. There are 17 of us going through this study. And it just so happens, this week we are looking at labels.


While there are too many to list here, I’d like to share some of Mrs. Rothschild’s truthful labels she points us toward in her study. Perhaps you may not believe some of these labels. Maybe one or two may resonate with you, but you just don’t believe the rest. Well, if you think that, you need a thought closet makeover!


I am a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17)

I am gifted with power, love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7)

I am chosen to be fruitful (John 15:16)

I am secure (Romans 6:18; Romans 8:1)

I am spiritually alive (Ephesians 2:5)

I am God’s workmanship (Ephesians 2:10)

I am welcome in God’s presence (Ephesians 2:18; Hebrews 4:14-16)

I am sheltered and protected in God (Colossians 3:3)

I am God’s treasure (1 Peter 2:9-10)

I am being transformed (2 Corinthians 3:18)

I am a friend of God (John 15:15)

I am God’s delight (Zephaniah 3:17)[i]


I am so thankful for the labels I have through Jesus Christ. Without Him, I would be anything but the list above.


But here is the bigger truth. Each of these labels belongs to you in Christ Jesus. There is no reason to feel otherwise. We must not listen to the father of lies (John 8:44). We must listen to our Father’s truth. And this is just a partial list!


Today, let’s walk confidently in God’s truth. Let’s believe what He says and grasp the message He tells us. What labels will you believe?


Grace and truth be yours in abundance,
