We listen to the radio, television, magazines, and the opinions of friends.
Honestly, there is so much information fighting for space in our mind that we don’t even realize what we’re remembering most of the time.
Or, we don’t remember at all.
In the same token, we fly through the day with little thought to what we’re believing, saying, and sharing.
This, dear Christian, is dangerous.

7 Important Truths All Christians Should Believe
Whereas, we must guard our minds.
In fact, we must be fighting to fill our heads with the truth.
We must be proactive, choosing to fight the lies with what God says.
The Bible tells us to “demolish arguments and every pretense that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to make it obedient to Christ.” [2 Corinthians 10:5]
This is important stuff.
So, rather than beginning the day reading books, newspapers, and texts from opinionated friends, let’s take a few minutes to fill our minds with truth.
Here are 7 truths every Christian needs daily.
First, You have been bought with a price.
Indeed, you are God’s.
He chose to make you, pursue you, forgive you, redeem you, and adopt you as His own.
Additionally, He sent His Son to die so that he would be glorified with your new life. God loves you enough to make your body a temple of the Holy Spirit. Further, God loves you enough to chase you and catch you.
He loves you enough to send His Son to the cross.
What does this mean, Christian? Surely, your life has purpose, meaning, and value.

Second, You are redeemed and forgiven of all sin.
In fact, all of the evil you have ever done – and in Scripture, it tells us that everyone has done evil [Romans 3:10] – is washed away. It is gone.
So, there is no need for shame. Indeed, there is nothing you have done that Jesus did not redeem on the cross. What a gift!
What does this mean, Christian? Although confession is necessary, forgiveness is certain.

Third, You cannot be separated from God’s love.
If you are a Jesus-follower, then nothing you can ever do will separate you from God and His love.
To clarify, the Lord cherishes you, holds your tender heart, and calls you His child. Nothing can stop that.
What does this mean, Christian? Because of this, you can run to the Lord with your struggles. Certainly, He longs to hold you and love you.

Fourth, You are God’s & the devil has no rule in your life.
Unfortunately, the devil loves to try and squirm his way into our lives.
Further, he likes to make us feel inferior, anxious, bitter, and rebellious. And, he likes to make us think that we can be our own little gods.
But the truth is this: victory has already been claimed.
Christ won. In particular, He defeated the monster of Satan who now has no dominion in your life. Tell him to back away, because in Jesus’ name there is no room for the devil.
What does this mean, Christian? Certainly, you can claim Jesus when you feel the forces of evil. He will show up. After all, He already won the battle.

Fifth, You are God’s workmanship.
God crafted you. God has given you abilities for His glory – so that you can work as unto the Lord.
He cares about your successes, and He also cares about making His name known among the nations.
Indeed, He will use faithful servants to proclaim His truth. And that is you.
You are His workmanship, created to work for God’s glory and purposes.
What does this mean, Christian? We can use our passions and skills to be Jesus in the world. Think of the gifts God has given you and use them.

Sixth, You are complete in Jesus.
Nothing defines you except for the blood and the name of Jesus.
If you’re searching for fulfillment in something other than the Lord, you’re looking in the wrong place, friend. Your job will not fulfill you.
Your marriage will not fulfill you. Additionally, your children, your home, your money, your appearance – none of it will fulfill you.
Do you want to know what will?
Jesus. His truth. His love. Truly, His promises about your worth. And because of His death on the cross, you are made complete and whole.
What does this mean, Christian? Your heart longs for Jesus. Fill it with Him and not the things of the world.

Seventh, You have access to God through the Spirit.
You can make your requests known to the Lord because you have the Holy Spirit inside of you. You’ve been given access to the God of the universe.
Do you know what else?
He hears. He loves you. And, He cares about the struggles, concerns, fears, and hardships you face. Cry out to Him. We’ve been given access through the Spirit.
What does this mean, Christian? You are never alone. You are always heard. God deeply cares.
You are never alone. You are always heard. God deeply cares. Click To Tweet
Grab ahold of these truths and fight to believe them each and every day.
You are so valued & so loved by the Creator of the world.
Goodness, if I could sit across from you at a coffee shop sipping lattes, you would hear my passion – please believe these truths.
Fight to believe them.
Pray for a deeper ability to believe them.
Trust what God says about you.
Run to Him daily.
You are worthy, redeemed, loved, protected, set apart, complete, and heard.

When you said that if you’re looking for fulfillment in anything other than the Lord, you’re looking in the wrong place, it gave me a sense of peace. I hope there’s a Christian TV ministry I can hear these sorts of inspirational words of God with my family. I feel like having a screen where we can all sit, watch, and listen to the words of God is a wholesome family experience.
I’ll pray with you for the perfect place to watch together.
I work with a ministry that has many great resources. Perhaps you can find something on their site – https://www.lwf.org/
Blessings to you,
It’s always a blessing to visit with you, Melanie! Thank you for sharing such powerful reminders of truth! Hope you have a super blessed week! 🙂
Thank you, Tai!
You and your ministry bless me!
I thank God that I saw your post today on FB and came over to read this post. My 12 year old daughter is struggling with anxiety. I began my struggle with anxiety at age 9 so I was able to tell her that I understand and I have been there. I was also sad to tell her that there is no magic pill that it doesn’t just go away quickly. I encouraged her to pray. I encouraged her to journal. I don’t have the cash right now but I’d like to get her this book and I did sign up for your email series about fear and will share it with her. Thank you!
So glad you found this post and were encouraged!
So many young girls and women struggle with anxiety. Your daughter is blessed to have you for a mom!
I will continue to pray with you for victory, for courage, and for overcoming!
Blessings to you,
Amen! These truths are essential for living in the victory of the Lord, blessed to be a blessing to others. Thank you for sharing!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a kind word, Nicole!
Hope you will be blessed~
These are awesome truths Melanie. They remind me who I am in Him. My favorite was the fact that the devil has no rule in my life. God wants me to succeed and has handed me victory in advance over the devil – so reassuring!
Thank you, Brittany! My friend Aliso Tiemeyer is a wise young woman. She wrote this!
Actually – being bought with the blood of Jesus does not mean you are saved. We are saved through the blood. But we must choose the ways of God. See Matthew 7:22-24. We ARE saved if we choose it. I think many think its a free for all – not quite. We must continually choose obedience. Jesus also said “I did not come to abolish the law but to fulfill it”. The law still stands.

I’m so thankful that in Him we have redemption through His blood – the forgiveness of sins. (Eph. 1:7)
Without grace, I don’t know where I’d be.
Hope you have a blessed day~
Yes!!! In a world that constantly bombards us with lies, our only hope is to stand on God’s truth! This is the source of our worth and our identity. A woman who doesn’t know these truths will look to fill herself us in the wrong places and nothing good comes from that!! Thanks for sharing these foundational truths!!
And, thank you for your words of encouragement today!
Hope you have a blessed day~
As a fellow bloggers, wife, daughter, and most importantly a Christian I appreciate the Simplicity of this message. I’m always looking for sermon content that I can preach at my local church this article gave me a springboard for a whole new series of messages. May God continue to use you daily for the magnification of His kingdom.
Thank you, Rena!
So appreciate you stopping by to leave a kind word today.
And, I so agree… these words can be preached! Amen!

Loving Alison’s timely words again today… I think I needed reinforcing on #4 and #5 the most! To remember that we have Jesus’ authority to put the devil under our feet when we come under attack is paramount. Thanks for sharing your space with her ♥
