The Bible uses many different words to describe what happens to people when they trust Christ. The most common phrase is "in Christ." But what exactly does that mean? This compact book unpacks 52 key verses from Scripture that reveal God's answer to the question of a Christian's true identity. Here is a unique, one-of-kind collection with in-depth commentary and life application insight to help readers discover the full depth of what God has already changed in believers. Changes that are already done.

Our identity in Christ is who we really are. That reality gets lost in everyday life.
Kuhn has written 52 devotionals, reminding us what God says is true of us. Each devotional includes a Bible verse and Kuhn's comments. It is not a scholarly work. Kuhn uses examples from his own life and movies, such as Harry Potter, to illustrate his teaching. He covers topics like being forgiven, right with God, a new creation, blessed with every spiritual blessing, adopted, and much more.
While most of the book is good solid biblical teaching, I did find a few aspects of it that troubled me.
Kuhn uses several verses from the Old Testament, such as Jeremiah 31:3 (you are loved) and Deuteronomy 31:8 (God will never abandon you). Those were promises to the Israelites. Can they be legitimately transferred to Christians? Also, John 15:5 is used to show we are friends of Jesus. But that verse describes the disciples. Can that description be honestly transferred to Christians today? I would have preferred verses be used that were specific to believers in Christ.
There is a concept Kuhn gives that I have not heard before. Regarding being seated in the heavenlies, he says, our soul, the truest part of us, is already seated in heaven, no longer here on earth. When we die and get our new body, our physical and spiritual realities will then merge together for the rest of eternity. (938/1645, chapter 28) Kuhn takes comfort that his soul is already in heaven. My soul still battles temptations and sometimes sins. I don't think it is in heaven. I think there is a more traditional and satisfying explanation to Ephesians 2:6 that emphasizes the already and not yet aspect of what is true of us in Christ.
Kuhn found that meditating on the truths he has included in this book were transformational for him. He hopes that the same will be true for his readers.
I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
