Committed to Who You Are
Who are you? No, really. It’s a question. Please consider it.
Are you still reading, friend? Please stop and think about it. I’ll wait on you…..
Perhaps when you first read the question ‘Who are you?’ several nouns ran through your mind: Christian, daughter, mother, father, son, brother, sister, friend, worker bee, athlete, writer, business owner. Or maybe your brain was descriptive and lots of adjectives came up: I am funny, thoughtful, driven, ambitious, focused. Depending upon what type of mood you’re in or how hectic your day has been, your thoughts may range more along these lines: I am tired, scatter-brained, stretched too thin, unsuccessful, klutzy, frustrated, unchangeable, broken, unloved.
Psst!! Friend, let me share this truth with you: You are a marvelous work of God wonderfully and fearfully made! (Psalm 139:14) The Creator of the universe made you! He loves you and wants you to be His. For those of us who have accepted Christ and are children of God we are a NEW creation (2 Corinthians 5:17). “Christ in you, the hope of glory” Colossians 1:27
Now, I want to ask you again… Who are you?
Better yet who are you committed to being?
Are you who Christ made you? Or are you focused on the lies the devil would have you to believe?
I struggle sometimes with who I am. I am sure anyone who is honest would admit to that. I also find the closer I am to God the less I struggle to answer the question of who I am. The Bible talks about that too! “What shall we say in response to these things. If God is for us who can be against?...No one…Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?...in all these things we are more than conquerors through Christ who loved us...nothing in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:31-39
We are conquerors! We are loved.
So, who are you committed to being?
