Who Am I?
In light of our last post on "Stones of Remembrance", I wanted to pose this question today.

"Who Am I?" Interesting question, don't you think?
It's not only interesting, but a great opportunity to revisit some important truths.
As a believer in Jesus Christ we MUST remember who we are in order to behave like we believe.

Here are but a few truths contained in God's word. I hope you will rest on these truths and verses.
Write them in your journal, put your name in each verse, then read those verses out loud. Let your ears hear God's truth spoken in your own voice.

You my sweet sister are:
A New Creature
(2 Corinthians 5:17)
God's child, for I am born again of the incorruptible seed of the Word of God which liveth and abideth forever.
(1 Peter 1:23).
Forgiven of all my sins and washed in the blood
(Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 9:14, Colossians 1:14, 1 John 2:12, 1 John 1:9)
Redeemed
(1 Peter 1:18,19 Galatians 3:13)
A Saint 
(Romans 1:7, 1 Corinthians 1:2, Philippians 1:1)
Blessed
(Deuteronomy 28:1-14, Galatians 3:9)
Holy and without blame before Him in love.
(1 Peter 1:1, Ephesians 1:4)
Victorious
(Revelation 21:7)
Set Free
(John 8:31-33)
Strong in the Lord.
(Ephesians 6:10)
Dead to sin
(Romans 6:2,11; 1 Peter 2:24)
More than a conqueror
(Romans 8:37)
Joint heir with Christ
(Romans 8:17)
Complete in Him.
(Colossians 2:10) Lacking NOTHING.

Friends, it is my goal to shore up our foundation of truth as we strive to move ahead in our pursuit of change.

What truths and verses from God's word can you share with us?

Hi Zoe:
I do a whole retreat on this subject, on finding our identity in Christ. We look for significance in all the wrong places-- in what others' opinions are of us, our accomplishments, or comparing ourselves to others. And as these are all subject to change, our identity gets pulled out like a rug from under us. You are so right-- who we are is all about what he has made us.

You forgot to mention a new name: Isaiah 62:2-3, which is ironic considering the name of your blog!! Blessings, my friend!

Answering the question Who am I is so powerful in comparison to answering the question what am I, and many confuse the 2. Normally one would answer with I am a mom, a wife, a sister, a writer... etc
But when we understand that that we are God's prize possesions, purchased by Jesus blood and the carrier of the holy spirit the same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead.. then we know what blessed people we are. That is something to get up in the morning for :)

thank you for sharing this message!

blessings & giggles
Jeanie
