Do You Really Know Who You Are?

by Lee Buford on December 1, 2011

Know who you are. Know whose you are. The next time the devil reminds you of your past, remind him of his future.

As a Christian there is no shortage of catchy, quirky sayings or quotes designed to keep you on track in your walk with Christ. While most are not intended to be trivial or detract from Scripture itself they nonetheless are inferior to God’s Word for providing the necessary truths that we seek and cling to on our daily journeys of faith. What we truly need is not another slogan or catch phrase, but rather a promise from God that we can rest and trust upon, no matter the circumstance.

Consider this one today from Romans 8:14-17:

14For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. 15For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” 16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.

Soak that up…let it sink in. Read it again. “Children of God…heirs…fellow heirs with Christ.”

You don’t have to question your standing with God if you are a believer. You don’t have to worry about what others say or think. Opinions are irrelevant here. God has spoken, and He’s called you His child and a fellow heir with Christ.

That’s bigger than I can comprehend at times… an “heir with Christ”. Really? YES!!

Trust in that today. Meditate on that truth from His Word, and let no man, situation, or circumstance cause you to doubt or question how God truly feels about you. Most importantly, let your response be one of worship and praise to the Father who called you according to His perfect will and good purposes.

We can all be called a lot of things (and probably will be). But you and I will never be called anything greater than children of God, a son or daughter of the King…an “heir with Christ”.

To Him be the glory!
