Identification is the complete union of the believer with Christ in His substitutionary sacrifice. To understand your identification with Christ is to understand what God did in Christ for us, from the time He went to the cross until He sat down on the right hand of the Father. He became one with us in sin that we might become one with Him in righteousness. He became as we were, to the end that we might become as He is now. He became one with us in death, that we might become one with Him in life.
