The Bible says,

Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people.

1. Peter‬ ‭2:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

This means that when your identity is in Jesus Christ, you’re not impressed with yourself and you do not compare yourself with others. (See Galatians 4:6)

And, you won’t have the need to grade yourself and compete with others. (See 2. Corinthians 10:12)

You don’t brag about yourself, but you let others praise you. (See Proverbs‬ ‭27:2‬)

Those who have their identity in Jesus know that God has chosen them and that they are special to Him, royal priests and holy. They know God brought them out of the darkness into His marvelous light. Now they tell others about all the wonderful things He has done! (See 1. Peter‬ ‭2:9‬)
