What is identity and how do we know if ours is in Christ? Building on our Identity in Christ from the Identity : Loved kit, we are now viewing it from the lens of what it means to be chosen by God and create an Identity Passport filled with 30 truths of scripture and proclaiming who we are in Christ.


Here’s to getting creative and studying God’s word. ⠀

TOPIC: Identity : Chosen
KEY PRAYER VERSE: Colossians 3:12
READING: Matthew 23:1-36


CLEANING OUR CUP - Week 4 // Inspire Weekly

This week, we are diving into Matthew 23 and how Jesus instructs the teachers of the law to clean the insides of their cups. Being chosen calls us to a holy response, as we have talked about, and ushers us into filling ourselves with the word of God. The Holy Spirit works in us as we study truths of scripture and choose to live accordingly.

Join us as we pray, study and create this month through the Identity : Chosen creative bible study kit. Grab yours here.


PLAYLIST

Each week we feature songs that tie into what we are studying. Praying they convey these truths and more as you take time to listen to the heart and lyrics behind them.

CREATE IT // Passport Embellishment 2

Hope your Identity Passports are coming along this week and more than just a place to store pretty bible verses. The application of them in our lives is MORE important than how it looks - hands down.

Here are a few ideas to add to your Identity Passport.

MAKE A COVER

Use paper of your choice, I used 65lb kraft card stock for mine and used the notecards as a template for cutting and hole punching. I like reinforcing, so I used my Crop-o-Dile to add eyelets.

ART PRINT

If you don’t want to write out the verses, though it is great for learning as you involve more senses, you can easily use this month’s art print to one of your pages.

GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT - Week 3 // Inspire Weekly

Spiritual gifts can be taboo and hard to understand but play a huge role in building up the Church, which each member is invited into. This week in our Inspire Weekly, we talk about the broader view of the importance of knowing your gifts and having faith to use them in order to bring unity to the Church.

CREATE IT // Bible Journaling Pages

As we go through the Identity Passport, I wanted to share a few bible journaling pages create with verses from included verses. You can easily create something similar inside the passport in a smaller scale. I love being able to have multiple options, which is how the creative bible study kit is designed.

Last week, at our latest Inspire Gathering at Mercy Multiplied, one of the girls mentioned how washi tape makes you look crafty, even when you are not. It made me to laugh and I think there is definitely some truth in that. If you have some washi tape, throw down some in your Identity Passport or bible journal for instant craftiness.

CREATE IT // Simple Passport Embellishments

This week is quick way to show your Identity Passport some love with simple embellishments from the kit and our Basics Tabs.

USE BASICS TABS CATEGORIZE VERSES

Last week we mentioned using colors to categorize verses that pertain to certain truths (i.e. : Who I am / Love / Fear), this week we use our basics tabs to easily find them and use the embellishments from the kit to decorate.

DEAR YOUNGER ME - MercyMe

These videos are of the same songs but had to include both: the music quality above is better and the testimony Bart shares before the song is beautiful in the video below.

WHO YOU SAY I AM - Hillsong

JESUS MESSIAH - Chris Tomlin

FIGHTING WORDS - Ellie Holcomb


CREATE IT // Create a Passport

The Identity Passport is a list of scriptures to remind us who we are in Christ and fight the lies we believe with the truths of scripture.

CATEGORIZE VERSES

Take time to read over the Identity Passport. Using highlighters or markers, coordinate colors for verse with similar topics that stand out to you or pertain to issues you are struggling with. Yellow is my favorite color, so I highlighted verse about Who I Am in Christ in yellow and wrote them on the yellow notecards.

SINGLE / DOUBLE PUNCH

Keeping your notecards together can be helpful. Bind them together with a single punch for easy removal or make it more like a book with a double punch.

I measured over 1/2” from the edge and 1” from the top and bottom for the placement of my holes. See video below for more details.
