1 Peter 3:3-4

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewellery or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. - 1 Peter 3:3,4

Finding Our Identity In Christ

Most of us go through a time in our lives when we question who we really are. What do we believe? Why do we believe it? It's a journey we go on. A journey of self discovery. Now that I am heading off to start my next chapter of life in Australia, I'm planning on using this time to discover what I am about. What I like to do and believe - not just because it's what I've been taught and brought up to believe. 

A short while ago a friend was sharing his testimony and saying how a time after he moved out he turned against God  and started to do his own thing, trying to find himself. This lasted for a few years until he realised that he needed God. Something he said stuck with me that day. He said that he not only found who he was, but that he needed to continue searching to find who he was in Christ. This got me thinking of who I really was. 

I've heard pastors preach that without Christ we are nothing. Without God what can we accomplish. In our own power things are imperfect and there is an endless void in our hearts that we try to satisfy with the wrong things. But when we have received the Holy Spirit and He lives inside us, that void disappears. We know that with God we can do all things and if we follow His leading in our lives, He leads us towards greatness. I've come to realise that I don't need to find who I am, I need to find who I am IN CHRIST! Without Christ I am nothing. It isn't about me, but it's about God and everything I do needs to be an example of Him and His love.

May God bless you all as you continue to discover who you are in Him!

  1. I really needed this! I can't even tell you how timely it is! Thank you so much for sharing. I will continue to pray for you...to pray you'll find who you are in Christ, and grow in all your talent, love and personality. :)

  2. I'm so glad that God's placing of this on my heart was able to be the encouragement needed for someone else. May God bless you :)
