If I were to ask ‘Who are you?’ or ‘Can you tell me a bit about yourself?”, what would your response be?
Typically, we all would respond with things such as our name, gender, nationality, age, marital and parental status, type of work we do, state we live in, educational background, hobbies, likes and dislikes. Some of these things may be facts about who you are today. However, if asked the same questions five years from now, some of your responses may be different.
As Christians, there is a part of our identity that will remain permanent, that we often overlook and lose sight of – our identity in Christ. It’s the part of our identity that doesn’t depend on hair color, body type, heritage, talents, or popularity.
The question is, do you know your identity in Christ? Or, do you define yourself by what you do and what you’ve accomplished in life? Or, have you allowed other people to define who you are and who you aren’t?
