WHO ARE YOU?

I have found through my experience as a minister a major problem in the world today. It is the question of identity. Christians and non Christians alike are experiencing an identity crises in some form or another. In Genesis 1:27 God addresses the issue of identity, by telling us that the human race is His offspring, His children, made in His likeness and in His image. 1 John 3:1-2 tells us that God has called and named us sons, or children of God, and declares that this is not something we will attain, but it is who we are now! So to answer the question of identity is to understand that we are children of God, and He is our true Father. We come from Him, and we belong to Him. When we begin to identify with Him as our Father through our Lord Jesus Christ, the anxiety and question of identity is fulfilled.
