Summary: To many people don't realize who they are..the world has beat them down and they've forgotten. If you bare the name of Christ, then your a child of the King. It's high time we realize our true identity..it's time we truly enjoyed what God has prepared
Who are you?
Have You Forgotten Who You Are?
Some would say, of course I know who I am,
I am so and so, from Such and such!
And then again, there are some who think they know who they are!
And they remind people, everywhere they go,
and all those who they run into in life...
Do you know who your talking to?
Do you know who I am?
And the response shouldn't be one of fear and intimidation,
But of concern when someone acts that way..with a question,
Who are you?
Tell me what is your genetic make up?
And our response shouldn't be one of sarcasm...
But one of witness, one of pride, one of inclusion!
Who am I, that The Lord of all the earth
Would care to know my name
Would care to feel my hurt?
Who am I, that the bright and morning star
Would choose to light the way
For my ever wandering heart?
Not because of who I am
But because of what you've done
Not because of what I've done
But because of who you are
I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
A vapor in the wind
Still you hear me when I'm calling
Lord, you catch me when I'm falling
And you told me who I am
I am Yours, I am Yours
Far to often, we fail to make the observation that...
If we call ourselves Christian..
If we bare His Name...
Then We Are His! Aren't we?
He knows who we are..the question is...
Do we? We'll Do we? We should!
The Message (MSG)
13-16 Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
you formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared
before I’d even lived one day.
He knows everything about us!
Everything? Yes everything!
My friends, that knowledge shouldn't be intimidating..
That knowledge should be exciting to all
who call Him, their Lord and Saviour!!
David wrote that Psalm with Excitement church! Amen?
He knew God and he knew God knew Him...
there is beautiful intimacy in their relationship!
You know there are a lot of things that excite people in life..
Hows come people can get excited over somethings like that in life,
but when it comes to the spiritual smorgasbord that God has so extravagantly prepared for all who wish to enjoy,
So many are willing to settle and to just have the horderves that religion offers them in life?
and so few are willing to experience all that God has for them, only the personal intimacy of a relationship with His Son Jesus...can bring into their lives?
Ephesians 1:3-6, 11-14, MSG
3-6 How blessed is God! And what a blessing he is! He’s the Father of our Master, Jesus Christ, and takes us to the high places of blessing in him. Long before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love. Long, long ago he decided to adopt us into his family through Jesus Christ. (What pleasure he took in planning this!) He wanted us to enter into the celebration of his lavish gift-giving by the hand of his beloved Son.
11-12 It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.
13-14 It’s in Christ that you, once you heard the truth and believed it (this Message of your salvation), found yourselves home free—signed, sealed, and delivered by the Holy Spirit. This signet from God is the first installment on what’s coming, a reminder that we’ll get everything God has planned for us, a praising and glorious life.
So I ask you...Who Are You?
If your a Christian.. the correct response should be...
I am Christ's..
I am a adopted son or daughter of the most high God!
I am somebody..because God has made me Somebody!
Far too many people in life..don't feel like their somebody
Like they matter or have purpose.
