It’s always stressful trying to figure out who you are in an era when the world is bombarding you with opinions of who you are and what you should be. Life for the modern day man and woman can be confusing and overwhelming. Culture says one thing, media says another. But when all has been said and done only the manufacturer of a product can define its use and purpose, so
You will only know who you are, when you discover whose you are.
Recently I spent some time going over the Word of God, so I could get to the root of ME, my identity and my purpose..and this is what I came out with..

I AM, A CHOSEN RACE, A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, GOD’S OWN POSSESSION..

(1 Peter 2:9)
I AM A FRIEND OF GOD..

Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. (Galations 1:10)
