Do You Know Who You Are?

Hello, my friends! :) Do you know who you are? And I DON'T mean:

  • Who are you TRYING to be?
  • Who have you IMAGINED that you are?
  • Who do you APPEAR to be?
  • Who do you WANT to be?

But, IN REALITY, who are you? Do you know?

Does your concept of identity shift back and forth with:

  • how you feel?
  • your circumstances?
  • what you had for dinner?
  • shaky relationships?
  • what someone else thinks about you?

In case you're wondering, I go through this stuff all the time. But I have learned that who I am is not something that I make up or make it to be. It is as stable as the life of Jesus Christ, who destroyed the person I USED to be (though you and I may both question that) and has made me brand new in Him! This is good news! And it is my primary desire that you, as a believer in Christ, understand the truth of what has happened TO you and IN you. Have a shovelacious day!

Random Shovelquote: Christ in us (view all shovelquotes)

Life in Christ is all about Christ in us and us in Christ because of what He did on the cross and through His resurrection. I will claim no institution of man, religious or otherwise.   source
