Who We Are
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9
We are God’s special possession. A chosen people who were called out of darkness to be with Him on this journey of recovery. As God’s royal priesthood, we are not our struggles. We are not the refuse that’s been tossed aside by this world. We don’t call ourselves what we are not. Our identity is in Jesus Christ and not in the things with which our earthly bodies struggle.

In Christ-centered recovery, we do not identify ourselves as addicts, alcoholics, or codependents. We are not what this world says we are. We may struggle with hurts, habits, hangups but those are not who we are. We are adopted into God’s family. To identify with our struggles, is to become stuck in the struggles, with no way out. Our identity is in the solution and not the problem. Christ has set us free from the bondage of self and we experience hope and healing on a whole new level.

Our higher power has a face and a name and loves us so much that He took the payment for our sins by dying on the cross. Our higher power is power. Christ is the ultimate overcomer. He overcame this world and He overcame death. As Christians in recovery, we are not what this world says we are. We stopped believing the lies of “once an addict, always an addict.” We now live in the truth of being a new creation, a royal priesthood, a chosen people, and God’s special possession. We know who we are and we also know whose we are.

Heavenly Father, I am no longer bound by what this world says I am. My identity is in Christ and not in anything else. Thank You, God for allowing me to be more than just an addict, alcoholic, or codependent. I am a child of God and a royal priest. My identity is not in the problem but now lies in the answer to the problems. My identity is in Christ. Amen.
