Who Are You in Christ?
What does God says you are?
The knowledge of who you are is the first step to a fulfilling life and destiny, if you cannot give a correct answer when anyone asks about who you are, you living in delusion.
God the father and the creator of all made you for a purpose and unless you discover who you are and what God has created you for, you merely exist.
Nobody can help you discover exactly who you are except God, people around you can see you and discover some potential and attribute in your life but it doesn’t end there, until you are very sure of who you are, the people around you can give you any identity that look like who they think you are but they can know your through identity.
When priests and Levites from Jerusalem came to ask John the Baptist about who he was, he was able to answer them without being confused.
John 1:19-23. And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, who art thou? And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. And they asked him,
Art thou Elias?
And he saith, I am not.
Art thou that prophet?
And he answered, No.
Then said they unto him, Who art thou?
That we may give an answer to them that sent us.
What sayest thou of thyself?
He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.
If you don’t know who you are, you can’t have vision for life and a vision less life is a worthless life that is why it is so important to know who you are.
God has a purpose for His entire creature both living and non-living how much more we human being that He created in His own image with divine mandate to have dominion over the earth and subdue it.
The reason why the reality of the divine mandate has not found expression in some people’s life is because they don’t know who they are.
When you are aware of the kind of person you are, your focus in life will be channel to that purpose and you will remain focus to it.
Joseph knew that one day he will become a leader and all his bothers will bow for him, despite all the challenges he encounter along the way he remain focus because he know who he is.
It takes the knowledge of knowing who you are for you to be able to live your life in the right way as it is expected of God, the personal knowledge is so important and it will help you to know what to do with your life, the material you need to read, the company to keep, the people to choose as mentor and role model among other things.
If you know who you are and you are living according to it, thank God for your life, but if you don’t know who you are you need to ask the Lord to reveal yourself to you by saying “Oh Lord reveal myself to me”.
