Who am I?

Who am I?

I guess that’s the question we all ask, at one point or another. To understand ourselves, to secure our identity; to belong.

Maybe you don’t ponder on this, at least not anymore. But there was a time in your life when you asked this question. And now it’s answered, you know who you are.

You are a 22 year old, university educated, professional worker. You are respected by friends, family and strangers and have 300 followers on instagram. You like cats and travelling.

But why does it seem like we’re always searching for something more? And what happens when we lose a part of ourselves – when broken relationships and lost opportunities threaten our identity?

Defined by the things we see and feel, it’s only a matter of time before time takes it away, or our senses fade.

Underneath your profile picture, your job position and your friendship circles; who are you?

The most famous book of all time says that you were handcrafted by God himself. The bible says that we, his creation, have turned from him as the source of life and thus we have lost our livelihood. But because of his great love for us, his own son came and sought reconciliation between you and God.

The death and resurrection of Jesus the redeemer means you have a new life, and when he comes again, as he promised, you will live forever.

In this forever, you and I won’t be defined by our achievements, but by our status as children of God – earned by Jesus our king.

And God says that we have this status now. We have this identity now. You are his, now.

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.” – John 10:27-28
