'100 Things About Me' Final 25

This is my final 25 of my '100 Things About Me' post. I'm now aware that technically this was to be done at the time of my 100th I do things a little differently, ok?! You've heard the saying: Light's on but nobody's home? Well, in my case I'm home but my lights are on a timer!...sometimes they're on sometimes they're off...takes me awhile to catch on! Thank God for God, because, seriously, I would be nothing without Him! I've dedicated these last 25 to 'Who I Am in Christ' which is just as much a part of me as the other things I've posted. I'm so grateful for Christ in my life. HE is my LIGHT. (If you need to catch up on my previous posts which are in increments of 25, they are here and here and here.)

76. I am forgiven of all my sins and washed in the Blood--Ephesians 1:7--In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace...I am alive with Christ--Ephesians 2:5--...even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)...
77. I am free from the law of sin and death--Romans 8:2--For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
78. I am far from oppression, and fear does not come near me--Isaiah 54:14--In righteousness you shall be established; You shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; And from terror, for it shall not come near you.
79. I am born of God, and the evil one does not touch me--I John 5:18--We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.
80. I am holy and without blame before Him in love--I Peter 1:16--because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy Ephesians 1:4--just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love...
81. I have the mind of Christ--Philippians 2:5--Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.--I Corinthians 2:16--For “who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.
82. I have the peace of God that passes all understanding--Philippians 4:7--and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
83. I have the Greater One living in me; greater is He Who is in me than he who is in the world--I John 4:4--You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
84. I have received the gift of righteousness and reign as a king in life by Jesus Christ--Romans 5:17--For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
85. I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me.--Philippians 4:13
86. I am God’s child, for I am born again--I Peter 1:23--having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever.
87. I am God’s workmanship, created in Christ unto good works--Ephesians 2:10--For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
88. I am a new creature in Christ--2 Corinthians 5:17--Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
89. I am a joint-heir with Christ--Romans 8:17--and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
90. I am more than a conqueror through Him Who loves me--Romans 8:37--Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
91. I am an overcomer by the blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony--Revelation 12:11--And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
92. I am a partaker of His divine nature--2 Peter 1:3,4--as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
93. I am an ambassador for Christ--2 Corinthians 5:20-- Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.
94. I am part of a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a purchased people--I Peter 2:9--But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light...
95. I am the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ--2 Corinthians 5:21--For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
96. I am the temple of the Holy Spirit; I am not my own--I Corinthians 6:19--Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
97. I am the head and not the tail; I am above only and not beneath--Deuteronomy 28:13--And the LORD will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.
98. I am alive with Christ--Ephesians 2:5--...even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)...
99. I am firmly rooted, built up, established in my faith and overflowing with gratitude--Colossians 2:7rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
100. It is not I who lives, but Christ lives in me--Galatians 2:20--I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
oops! 101. and one more that slipped my mind about me...I'm left-handed. Remember the lights on nobody's home thing?! Geewiz!

It's All ABOUT HIM Good!
