Topic: SELF IDENTITY
Text: Galatians 1: 1-3 KJV
1 Paul, an apostle (not from men nor
through man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father who raised Him from the dead), 2 and all the brethren who are with me, To the churches of Galatia:
3 Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ,
‘Self identity’ could be simply put as knowing or defining who you are in Christ. A Prince who does not know he is a prince or does not know his right as a Prince will forever be cheated, controlled and enslaved by the servant of the Palace but the moment the Prince understands what it means to be a Prince, he takes over his rightful place above the servant. Also a child who does not know the name his parents gave him at birth will answer whatever name people call him
Paul understood this clearly and has always stated his identity in Christ in every first verse of the books of the bible he wrote as seen in the text above. In Romans 1:1 he wrote ”Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God”. Paul knew who he was and always confidently declared it for readers of those letters (the Romans, the Galatians e.t.c) to know what he has been called to do.
When you don’t know who you are in Christ:
* You will not know the right you have in Christ
* You will be living below God expectation for your life
* Devil will always find it easy to mess you up
* The gifts, talents and power that God has deposited in you will just lie there wasting.
* You will answer whatever name the devil calls you (e.g a failure) because you do not know who you are in the first place.
Dearly beloved, discover your true identity in Christ through his word and begin to live as God sees you not as the world or devil sees you. Revelation 5:10 says you are a King and a Priest unto God.
If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your saviour you have no identity in Him, just change your identity today from a sinner and a slave of sin to a saint by accepting Jesus as your Lord and saviour. God bless you
1. Father, help to see myself as you see me not as the world sees me in Jesus Name
2. I step up to my rightful position in Christ from now hence forth in Jesus Name
