Who Are You?

Have you forgotten who you are and who you want to be? 

We react so quickly to circumstances, emotions, temptations, and other people's choices that we often forget who we're supposed to be. It's the path of sin we have chosen that blinds our eyes to who we truly are as men and women of God. It's why marriages break apart, why we are unreasonably short-tempered with our children, and why people make seemingly small choices that end up with large, negative consequences.

To prevent this we need daily reminders of who we are supposed to be in Jesus Christ. Our journey with Him isn't confined to a few moments while we choose to live hedonistically the rest of the week. When we acknowledge our Father and admit that we are sons & daughters of the King, we will start to live like it and won't allow temporary pleasures to cause us to forget who we are striving to be.

We need to be reminded about our true identity so that we make lifestyle choices that reflect who we are striving to be. If we don't stay focused on these reminders our character will be unstable and unrecognizable.
