The Miracle of Who You Are!

How to avoid an identity crisis.

 Who am I? Why do I exist? What's the purpose of life? Do these questions sound familiar?
 Figure out who you are, why you exist and the purpose of life right here.

 About 12 years ago an old friend told me that I didn't know who I was and that I needed to figure out who I am. I may have lost sight of who I was, but I know who I am. Do you know who you are?

 Don't listen to the world tell you who you are. Don't let other people choose who you are. If you know who you are, don't let anyone tell you differently. Don't give people room to assume they know who you are, make them KNOW who you are!

Let's Get to the Truth Let's get to the truth about who you are.
John 1:12-13 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of men, but of God.

 We won't be able to find out who we are by inward wandering. We need to look to our creator to find meaning.

 Sometimes we need to be reminded of who we are. When we feel like we don't belong, we need to remember that we are HIS.

 You will know who you are when you know who Jesus is.

 Who is Jesus? Jesus is the son of God. Jesus laid down his life to give us ours.

 Romans 8:16-17 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs--heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.

 We are children of God, he wants us, he desires us. If we are God's children then we are heirs, heirs of God- the highest, most holy king! We are royalty!

 Jesus came to seek and save the lost by making himself known. He became flesh to free us from our sin by dying on the cross. We are chosen, not forsaken.

 This brings me to the questions: why do I exist and what is the purpose of life? My post Purpose and Love explains the answer to these two questions.
I am a child of God
 Ultimately our purpose in life is to worship Jesus and be a witness to the truth. We are to share the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are to be his hands and feet and point others to him.

 So, who are you? You are a child of God! Chosen and not forsaken. You are an heir of God. When you know who Jesus is, you will know who you are! No longer a slave!

 What is your purpose? To spread the good news. Be a witness to those who don't know Him. Be a witness to those who have walked away and are having a hard time finding their way back. Help God by being his hands and feet.
