1Jo3v1 – My Identity

I’m Jack CEO at TDX. I’m Sally, Headmistress at Park High. I’m Julie from Sydney. What is your identity? Is it, what you do, where you stay, your role as a parent? These identities may not last and when they end, one can often be left feeling bereft and lost. Who am I? Why am I here? Jobs change, People move, Children leave home. There is only one identity that is certain and everlasting; that is the identity which God gives to those who put their trust in Him. In the Gospel of John we read; “Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12). This is a relationship which will last forever. This is a relationship of love our Heavenly Father shares with his children. “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!” (1 John 3:1). What should our response be to this calling from God? Moses gives us the answer; “That you may love the LORD your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days” (Deuteronomy 30:20). Choose being a child of God as your identity, for God is your life and your length of days. Open Bible – http://bit.ly/1Jo3v1, http://bit.ly/Joh1v12, http://bit.ly/READMore_ (Nicky B)
