Who Are You?

I-have-been-crucified-with-Christ-and-I-no-longer-live-but-Christ-lives-in-meJust a quick question to help get your year started right.

Who are you?

What do people see down in the core of what makes you who you are?

Do they see a person struggling for an identity?  Do you project an air of superiority and arrogance?  Do you live in fear and anxiety over the coming day and its responsibilities?  Do you love yourself?  Do you love others?  Are you honest or deceitful?  Are you patient or agitated?  Faithful or corrupt?

When did you die?

Yes, you heard me right.  When did you die?  When were you crucified with Christ and gave up living for yourself?  Because if we are truly changed by the blood of Christ, it is no longer we who live, but Christ living in us.

So, I’ll ask again…. Who are you?

      Thank you for your encouragement. After reading this verse, these questions came to mind and I thought they would be great to share as we move into a new year and evaluate as Christians whether Christ is truly loving through us.

  1. We continue to strive to live the life Christ has called us to. I know He is faithful to His promise and I chose to be faithful to Him. Thanks for starting the year by reminding us.

      I figure that the world is constantly trying to redefine who we should be according to God. It’s always a good reminder to think about who we are and how God would have us live.
