Who am I ???? Yes I am a child of my parents, a mother to my daughter, a wife to my husband, family to some and a friend to others but Most importantly I am a child of God, a child of the King. In a world full of insecurities, feelings of worthlessness, depression and so much more. It is vital that we find our identity in Christ, the one constant thing in this life.
For those of us who are born again believers through Christ we are the righteousness of God. God sees us as righteous because Jesus took our punishment. 2 Corinthians 5:20-21 “So we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making His appeal through us; we [as Christ’s representatives] plead with you on behalf of Christ to be reconciled to God. He made Christ who knew no sin to [judicially] be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we would become the righteousness of God [that is,we would be made acceptable to Him and placed in right relationship with Him by His gracious lovingkindness]. Remember we are made right with God through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross not any right doing of our own. We do the right thing not to get right with God but to maintain our relationship with Him.
Who am I ???? I am chosen by God. “But ye are chosen generation, a royal priesthood,an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:” 1 Peter 2:9.
Who am I ???? I am Christ’s workmanship. “For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above– spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us].Ephesians 2:10
Who am I ???? I am complete in Christ, lacking nothing. Colossians 2:9-10 “For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature].And you are in Him,made full and having come to the fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead-Father, Son and Holy Spirit-and reach full spiritual stature]…”
Be blessed until next time…
Father, we come to you thanking you for your mercy, grace, loving kindness and faithfulness. We thank you for not giving up on us when others have. Thank you for second chances and help us to get it right. We ask that as we read and meditate on your word that you give us revelation of who we are in you . We love you and praise you.
In Jesus name we pray, amen.
