Know Who You Are

If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, you are somebody who is loved and cherished. Your life has meaning because of who you know. When you know Jesus as your Lord, you are a child of God. That's who you are now and forever.

You have a Father who made all things. You have a Lord who died in your place to take away all of your sins. You have eternal life with an eternal family, the family of God. "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become the children of God, to those who believe on His name" (John 1:12).

Know who you are in Christ. As a believer, you have a right to be called a child of God. You are born again into the family of God. No one can take that right away from you. That right was paid at the cross by the blood of Jesus. It is your birthright. You are a child of God by faith in Jesus Christ.

Some may doubt. Others may be confused and uncertain. Many would like to know for sure. Yes, you can know who you are as a child of God by what is written in the Bible, what happened at the cross, and what Jesus has done for you. Doubt confesses, "I hope I'm a child of God. I'm just not sure." Faith says, "I am a child of God, because I'm a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe what the Bible says about me."
