What’s Your Identity?


It’s always exciting to hear young people share about the Lord and their Youth Camp experiences. Not long ago young people from our church shared their life-changing experience at Youth Camp. As they shared their experiences it resonated with the message of IDENTITY.

These young people learned a deep truth that many adults don’t fully grasp. They knew their identity is not in this world. It is not found in accumulating things. It isn’t in what the world says is important and they saw the emptiness in the world’s system of “must haves”. No, they learned about their true identity as children of God. They were able to walk out God’s love in connecting and ministering with each other which is an example we all need to exemplify.

We are all in different stages in our faith journey through this life. It’s essential we know we have importance. We’re not outcasts. When we’re in Jesus, He is in us! Knowing we are part of God’s awesome family, cements our relationship with God and gives us a new identity—child of God. This is what the young people learned, and it sounds like truth we should store in our hearts and minds and live from.

The Apostle Paul put it this way in Romans 8:16-17 NASB – “The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ.” The God of creation is thrilled for you to be part of His family. And as His child, you are an heir of everything that is His through Jesus. Exciting side note here—you don’t have to wait to get to Heaven to receive anything because God has made it available for you now.

Perhaps it’s time to review and nail down your identity in Christ as a believer, a child of God. Once you are secure in your identity in Christ, then live from your identity. Don’t let the world tell you who you are. You are God’s child, beloved, righteous, and you daily walk in His blessings.
