OUR IDENTITY - PART 1

What or who does your identity reflect – when you look in the mirror do you see characteristics of the world or those that reflect Jesus?

 

The bible states that we seated in the heavenlies – we are not citizens of this world but our spiritual Social Security number traces back to an address that is not of this world, so to speak.  Also, we know the bible says, be in this world, but not of it…so where does your identity come from and how does it reflect the things of Heaven?

 

If we are created in the image of Jesus, then we should walk in such characteristics.  I believe this verse means; we are created in his likeness – meaning in human form.  Within that we have the ability to walk and perform the tasks that He did while on earth. We both have the same Father – and still the task is at hand – to share the kingdom message – Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand…

 

Repentance is a key that changes your identity.  Repentance takes us from “in the world” to“being of the world”.  How powerful it is when we change one word – going from in to being – reveals our identity in Christ.

 

We can not walk in the true identity found in Jesus if we are walking in the world – meaning, partaking in all that it offers – falling into the sinful nature that is found where ever you may go.  Our identity is clouded when we are “in the world” playing with our destiny and purpose. To remove the fog, so to speak, repentance is the key – though that act of changing – Christ is revealed – where Christ is revealed – so it your identity.

 

If our identity is found “in the world” we can not fulfill the tasks at hand – to the full potential - what tasks are at hand?  Preach the Gospel, heal the sick, cast out demons and raise the dead.  Walking in the world stifles the anointing and authority we need to walk in to fulfill these tasks – we should review our walk daily and confess our sins that we would repent so Christ can reveal His Holy Spirit through us…

 

If we are “being of the world” then we are walking in the image of Christ – Christ was “of the world” but not in it – this is the key that we need to understand.  Sin hinders our identity – repentance reveals it.

 

Our identity doesn’t change – you gifting is not taken from you because of sin – but the power, authority and anointing that is connected with your identity suffers – when this takes place – You, Heaven and those around you are robbed – robbed due to the lack of understanding and walking in the power of your identity.

 

The bible states, “where there is no vision, people perish”I believe this can be used on a personal level – where we can not see our identity – that holds our vision – we lose focus and walk around in a daze.  We must run after and find our identity in Christ – that we have vision that creates purpose that releases an anointing to preach the gospel, heal the sick, cast out demons and raise the dead.

 

When you find your identity –it will give you a vision –that leads to a purpose – that creates an atmosphere for ministry.
