The local nursing home was hosting a very prominent speaker for Grandparents Day. When the speaker showed up early, he looked around the room and found a little old lady sitting all alone. He went over to sit down beside her and talk. The lady looked at him and the speaker said, “Ma’am, do you know who I am?” “No,” replied the lady, “if you will go over to the main desk, they will tell you who you are.”
Do you know who you are in Christ?
The more time you spend with the Lord, the more your behavior will reflect your identity God gave you! Learn to see yourself as God sees you! Accept what God has called you to be! Do not focus on the “what ifs” or “what will people think about me”. God’s opinion is the only one that truly matters! If you know who you are in Christ, you will have a strong foundation to build your life around. When you asked Jesus into your heart and accept Him as Lord, you become a new creation in Christ.
