Daily Scripture Identity and Life In Christ: Part 1

I am the salt of the earth, but if the salt loses its flavor, how can it be made salty again?  It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.  I am the light of the world.  A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.  In the same way, I must let my light shine before men, that they may see my good deeds and praise my Father in heaven.  (Matthew 5:13-16)

You have asked the Father, and He has given me another Comforter to be with me forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him.  But I know Him, for He lives in me.  (John 14:16-17)

Lord Jesus, You are in Your Father, and I am in You, and You are in me.  (John 14:20)

It is for my good that You returned to the Father, because You have sent the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, to me.   (John 16:7)

He is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code.  Such a man’s praise is not from men, but from God.  (Romans 2:29)

I died to sin; how can I live in it any longer?  (Romans 6:2)

All of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death.  I was therefore buried with Him through baptism into death, in order that just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so I too may walk in newness of life.  (Romans 6:3-4)

If I have been united with Christ in the likeness of His death, I will certainly also be united with Him in the likeness of His resurrection.  (Romans 6:5)

I know that my old self was crucified with Christ, so that the body of sin might be done away with, that I should no longer be a slave to sin; for the one who has died has been freed from sin.  (Romans 6:6-7)

If I died with Christ, I believe that I will also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, cannot die again; death no longer has dominion over Him.  For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.  In the same way, I must consider myself to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.  (Romans 6:8-11)
