Part 1: The First Glimpse of Our Identity in Christ - Who Am I?

Part 1: The First Glimpse of Our Identity in Christ - Who Am I?
by Bud

Society and the information age have, once again, riveted our attention to the elusive question “Who am I?”.

Infomercials and TV interviews provide platforms for psychologists and other ‘experts’ to spout opinions. Books, newspapers, magazines and even email spam offer the latest fads to ‘find ourselves’. And let’s not forget, reality TV scraps the issue completely screaming, “Forget that question! You just need a MAKEOVER!”

The opportunity to gain attention, acquire influence and make money is driving the search for an answer out of control. The world’s offerings are even being repackaged with Christian verbage that is neither rooted in Scripture nor looking to Jesus Christ for answers.

Regardless of why we need to know who we are, you and I have to make a choice about to whom we will go for answers – the wisdom of the world or the wisdom of God. It would seem logical as well as spiritual that we turn to the One who made us, to tell us who He made us to be.

By checking the Scriptures, we find only two basic identities from God’s perspective. Those who have trusted Jesus for salvation have become children of God. Those who reject Christ remain lost – still dead in trespasses and sins.

When you and I placed our faith in Jesus Christ, we became born again (John 3:3,14-18). At that moment, an internal, spiritual battle started between the old flesh and our new resident, the indwelling Holy Spirit (Romans 7:23-25).

I serve , the Lord.

Hint: the version of the name is the English version, not the Hebrew way to say His name. All letters are uppercase. Rhymes with "freeze us."
