Who are you, concept words draw on blackboard.

In the world there are a number of people that have an identity crisis. They suffer from low self esteem, are not motivated to improve their situations, and focus on the obstacles in their lives. If you were to ask them “who are you” what kind of response would you get? What if you raise that same question to people in the church, would the response be any different? I wonder how many people in church are struggling to understand who they are? In Revelations 1:5-6 the writer is telling us about the one we follow, what He has done for us, and who we are because of Him.

Do we understand we are defined by who we associate with? Since we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and savior we have been defined by Him. In Revelations 1:5-6 the writer wants us to know we are part of His kingdom and are identified as priest. This all became possible because He loved us and freed us from sin through His blood.  The next time you look in the mirror,  I want you to realize you are important to the Lord. He did this to allow us to understand we were living beneath our ability.

How are you living, because this determines how you see yourself?  How you see yourself, also impacts how you view the church you attend. If you don’t see potential in yourself it’s hard to see the possibilities in the place you worship. When you are asked “who are you”?  You have to see someone who has been empowered by the Lord, and is capable of doing great things. Knowing you have been freed from your sins through His blood.  Who are you? I am child of the King of kings, and part of a royal priesthood, and I’m placed here to make a difference. I will move in my blessing and see the potential in myself and encourage others to do the same. Thank you Lord for what you are doing in my life!
