Do you know that you have an Identity In Christ?
This subject is important to me so I wanted to create a page dedicated to it.
Not everyone who reads this will agree. So be it. Know this though, It doesn’t change the truth that you are deeply loved, valued and have purpose regardless of how “horrible” a person you’ve been or the “terrible” things you’ve done.
Why is this important?
Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He then became hungry. And the tempter came and said to Him, “If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” Matthew 4: 1-3 (emphasis mine).
Identity is important enough that it was the FIRST thing Satan said to Jesus. He challenged Jesus sonship. It should be important to you too.
So who am I?
That depends on who you’re asking. I can only answer that based on how I experience you and that answer can change from experience to experience.
What if we ask the One who made you? Yea!! Lets do that!!!!
