Other questions that might come in this form include:
‘What makes you different from us?’
‘Why do you think you are so special?’
‘Who do you think you are?’
Who are you?
In Genesis 3, the devil approached Eve and asked her the question, ‘Has God said you should not eat from any tree in the Garden?’ (Genesis 3:1-7).
The devil still uses the same old trick on Christians today. In the same way, he sells the idea of sin to us, making it look good, attractive and acceptable.
However, the standard and position of God regarding sin still remains unchanged!
Sin is sin! It is unacceptable, it is evil, it is abominable in the sight of God.
The first Adam lost his identity in God, and he lost his place.
The devil wanted to use the same old trick on the second Adam (Jesus Christ), but he failed (Matthew 4:3-10).
Jesus Christ knew who He was, who are you? Do you know who you are?
If you are a conformist with the world system, then you don’t have a problem with the devil and the world. If you must truly follow Christ, you will be hated by many (John 15:19).
When you conform to the world system, you will be spiritually deformed (Romans 8:6, 12:2).
Some people fall under the error of painting a picture of what/who they are not, while some others don’t even know what they stand for.
Sometimes, the way the world system verifies our identity is to present some ‘open doors’ before us, which might not necessarily be from God. However, as promising as these ‘opportunities’ may look, they involve just a little bit of compromise here and there.
If you don’t have values, you will never be rightly valued. You must know your worth in Christ before you command attention on earth. (Of course, this is not an invitation to pride and arrogance.)
HOW CAN I IDENTIFY (KNOW) MYSELF IN CHRIST?
We can only know ourselves in the light of God’s word, through the personal revelation that we draw from Him.
