“Our responsibility is to give the world the right impression of God.”
John Wesley – 1703-1792
Who are you? Beloved of God, time is running out.
You need to pause and take an honest inventory of your life and ask the right questions.
– Who am I?
– Where am I?
– Why am I here on planet Earth?
– Am I fulfilling my mission as my Master intends?
– How much more time is left of my God given days?
Scripture is clear:
Your “days are numbered” (Job 14:5).
Your “days on earth are like a shadow” (I Chron. 29:15).
A shadow is here this moment and, in the twinkling of an eye, it is gone. James, the brother of our Lord agrees. “Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away” (James 4:14).
The Lord’s disciples asked, “Lord do you want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them [the Samaritans]” (Luke 9:54)?
His reply is worthy of our attention: “He turned and rebuked them, and said, “You do not know what kind of spirit you are” (Luke 9:55).
Simplified: “You have no clue who you are.”
Who are you?
This small question is in fact the big question! Christians often don’t know who they are and what their mission is and this is hurting the witness of the church, now more than ever.
You cannot fulfill God’s plan for your life until you master two things:
Who you are in Christ and your mission. [NEXT]
