If you have ever had your identity stolen, it is not a joyous experience. Someone gets a hold of your debit or credit card numbers and if it is not caught in time you have charges that need to come off and it is a great hassle. While technology can we a good thing when it comes to the vulnerability of our identity it is a bad thing.
Quite often the enemy whose name is Satan like to steal our identity. He like for us to forget who we are in Christ. Because if we forget who we are then we not live it out. We will live powerless, defeated lives. This is why it is so important you know who you are.
If you have trusted Christ as your Savior you have been adopted into God's Family. You are now His Child!! You have all the right and privileges as an Heir. But I believe too many people do not understand this identity and become servants instead of sons.
Think about it. As a servant you want to please and perform for your master. There is no personal relationship. You just work, work, work and hope he is pleased with your performance. This is how many followers of Jesus approach God. They work hard to check boxes in their attempts to perform in the right way. But that is not what a son does. A son enjoys a rich relationship with the Father. He has joy to do whatever is pleasing to the Father. He does not need to perform because He is a son.
So who are you? In Christ you are a Son of God!!! You and I have full rights and privileges. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
Jesus Follower, Husband, Father, and Pastor and trying to keep those in the right order....
