Do Not Forget Your Identity

1 Corinthians 6:20{amp}
[20]You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body.

Romans 14:12{amp}
[12]And so each of us shall give an account of himself [give an answer in reference to judgment] to God.

Every man in this world carries an identity. No matter how young or old a person maybe, he / she carries an identity. Some carries the identity of their parents, some their schools, some their countries, some their religion. So no matter who you are, or where you come from, is either you’re a representative of somebody or something.

Identity means the individual characteristics by which a thing or a person is recognized or known for. So that means anywhere you appear, they will recognized you with something. It could be your colour, it could be your character, it could be your mode of dressing, your speech, your code of conduct or even the way you eat. That’s why you must be conscious of who you are.

No matter where you find yourself, I want you to know that you carry someone’s identity and that person is Jesus. You must be conscious of that anytime because you cannot do things the way the world are doing it. You must not act as if you have the freedom to do anything you want. Christ is in and you represent him, you’re not just a citizen of the kingdom, you’re an ambassador of the kingdom. You’re Christ ambassador. You’re made in heaven. You are the light of the world.

Anywhere you find yourself, don’t be afraid to let them know whose identity you carry, let them know you are for Christ, let them know you’re a light, let them know your identity. Don’t be ashamed to shine the light of Christ, the light you carry is not an ordinary one, is a supernatural one and it’s a light of Glory.

Matthew 5:14-14{amp}
[14]You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.
[15]Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a peck measure, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house.

I did not mean you should announce to everybody who you are, what I mean is that let them see Christ in you. The identity of whom you carry is not hard to see, everybody sees in light, but nobody sees in darkness, light must appear first before you can able to see, and when light comes, darkness disappears.

Matthew 5:16{amp}
Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.

Many traded their identity for pleasures of this world, for lust of the flesh, for positions, for powers, love of money, promotions, for a plate of rice and ice creams etc. Bringing down their value and standard for things that won’t last forever. Stand up for righteousness, stand up for holiness, and don’t forget who you are. Don’t forget your identity.

Joseph refuses to compromise his standard, he knows what he stands for, despite the heated pressure from his master’s wife, he knows the identity he carries. (Genesis 39) Daniel was no exceptional, he made up his mind not to eat the kings meat. He became a global ambassador without any connection. If you check the scripture, they bible recorded that Daniel was preferred above Princes and presidents. (Daniel 6:3). That means there is no level God cannot take you to if you don’t forget your identity.

Today, make up your that you’ll not compromise your standard, your faith, your believe and the heavenly king of Glory will visit you. God bless you.

If you want to carry a new identity, you want to be Christ’s ambassador and start shinning the light everywhere, you want to be born again, please say this prayer in faith:

Lord Jesus, i know I’m a sinner, I surrender all to you, I dedicate my life to you, I believe that you died for my sin and i confess with my mouth that you are the son of God, come in to my life now and be my savior, i will no longer live a life of sin again, from now on I will live to please you, please wash away my sins with your precious blood, give me a new life and a new beginning. Thank you for saving me i ‘m no longer a sinner, i ‘m now born again, in Jesus name Amen.

If just you prayed that prayer now, CONGRATULATIONS! You are now born again. I welcome you to the new life in Christ. What next now that you are saved?
