Who are you? Have you become so consumed with other things that you are uncertain of who you are?
- Whose attention are you seeking?
- What are you focused on?
- Are your thoughts and intentions pure?
- What are your desires?
- Do they align with allowing the Lord to be glorified in what you do?
If you were being judged this morning, strictly by what you did or said yesterday or last evening, where would your soul rest? Would God be pleased with you?
Who are you trying to please? Are you reaching beyond your comfort zone to save others?
If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. (Colossians 3:1-3)
We should not be seen. Jesus should be seen through us. What this means is that others should see a difference in us because we have been set apart to make a difference.
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)
We sit and watch others die daily and as long as it doesn’t effect our immediate circle, we are fine. We are shocked and comfort those for a moment. We respond to tragedy with the 🙏🏽 hands but do we really take a moment to pray? As soon as the post changes, it’s on to something else. Just that fast. We have allowed ourselves to become desensitized to help and to save others.
If you know who you are, in Jesus, you know what to do. It’s time to stop being a Christian when it only seems to benefit or pleases us and it’s time to do what pleases our Father.
“make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.” Hebrews 13:21 NKJV
Do you know who you are? You don’t need a title to share how the Lord turned your tragedy into triumph. You don’t need a platform to proclaim the name of Jesus. You only need to know who you are in Him. If you know who you are then you can share with others who He is.
