Who am I?

Many people are troubled by the question “Who am I?” It really doesn’t matter if we are rich or poor, successful or a failure, educated or uneducated, smart or dumb, well known or living in obscurity, on the scale of eternity, outside of Christ all we can say is: “I am no body.”

Yet, each of us who are included in Christ can know "who am I."  But we must take the time to search Scripture to find out who we are in Christ.  As you read the New Testament circle all the statements that contains the terms “in Christ,” and “in Him.” And then take ownership of those statements of fact, Jesus Christ paid a high price for each of us to enjoy a full life – John 10:10.

If you are a born again Christian God has lavished His grace and love upon your life, don't doubt that!  If you are not born again, but you want God to lavish His grace and love upon your life, here is His invitation:

An Invitation: If you haven’t accepted God’s free gift of forgiveness yet, but you would like to experience the New Life He promises, simply pray this prayer:  “Jesus Christ, I choose to believe you are the Son of God and God’s only sacrifice for the forgiveness of my sins. I admit it, I’m a sinner, please forgive my sins, and I ask you to come into my life, I want to be born again. Save me Jesus.  I don't understand it, but please save me Jesus.  Please show me how real you are! Also baptize me with your Holy Spirit; I want everything you have for me. Thank you for accepting me.”


If you’re a skeptic you can pray a prayer like this: “God, if  this is true about Jesus Christ and a new life, please help me understand so that I can accept your gift of eternal life that you purchased for me by the sacrifice of Your Son.”
