For Christians and non-Christians alike, the topic of “What God Says About Me” remains an important one. However, the answer to this question depends on your standing before God. There exist certain things that God says about all people, Christians, and unbelievers. Obviously we all belong to the “all people” category, but whether or not you are a Christian changes the answer to this question. So, we split the answer to this question into three sections: What God says about all people, what God says about Christians, and what God says about non-Christians.

 

What God Says About All People:

  1. “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27 — All people were originally created in the image of God. This means humanity shares certain characteristics with God.

  2. “Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’ Genesis 1:26 — God created all humans to have dominion over the rest of creation.

  3. for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” Romans 3:23 — All people are equally guilty of sin and fall short of God’s standard of perfection. 

  4. ““For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 — God loves all people despite our sin. He gave His only begotten Son (Jesus Christ) so that people could be saved from sin and death.

What God Says About Christians (Followers/Believers in Christ):

  1. “Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—” John 1:12 — Believers are considered children of God.

  2. “He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—” Ephesians 1:5 — Although there exist nuances to this idea, God does “predestine” or know that His children will choose Him and that is according to His will.

  3. “For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—” Romans 6:6 — Because of Christ’s actions on the cross and subsequent Resurrection, Christians are no longer slaves to sin or bound by sin.

  4. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 — Christians belong to God and possess the Holy Spirit. 

  5. “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1 — Through Christ, all Christians receive forgiveness and walk in a state free from condemnation or any penalty of sin.
