TITLE: WHAT DEFINES YOU?
AUTHORED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
GALATIANS 2:30 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
Some people let their past define them. Some let their background determine who they are. Some are defined by their work or status. While some let their money and what they have achieved form their identity.
Who are you? What will be your answer to this question if you were asked?
Identity crisis has been the reason for many things going wrong in the world. It has destroyed the relationship between brothers and sisters.
Who are you, what defines you?
Do you think you are nobody when there’s no money in your account?
Do you feel like hiding in holes when people who know something bad from your past show up?
Jephthah was defined by his past and future together; that was enough to cause confusion in a man’s life.
Gideon was letting himself take on the shape of his background and present circumstance, so much that he couldn’t see himself as God saw him. But Paul, despite all he had done in the past, knew, understood and accepted his true identity.
Just like Paul, I know who I am.
Christ has become my identity. He lives in me and through me.
Who am I? I am a child of God, born of the water and the Word, saved by Grace in Christ Jesus. That’s okay for me; that’s my identity.
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
I AM NOTHING WITHOUT THE CROSS. THANK YOU JESUS FOR DYING TO GIVE ME A PERFECT IDENTITY. ..HALLELUJAH!
WORDS ON MARBLE
SO MUCH BETTER TO BE IDENTIFIED WITH CHRIST THAN TO BE IDENTIFIED WITH ALL THE RICHES IN THIS WORLD… CHARLES CHUKWUEMEZIE
