Identity

Listen first:

Now think about this question: in what do you place your identity?

Do you place your identity in the world…in objects, in stuff…? Do you feel like you will not be accepted if you do not have the latest and greatest the world has to offer?

I, for one, will work to place my identity in something-rather someone- not of this world.

My identity is in Christ. 

2 Corinthians 5:17-21

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:  that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.  We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.  God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Saint

Kadhosh- Old Testament

Hagios-New Testament

Inherently the word means to be holy.

We know we’re not holy on our own terms, but Christ’s blood makes us holy.

So because He’s satisfied the wrath of God, the beef has been crushed.

Now we got a new identity, called a saint.

It’s Your Life…Don’t Waste It

Are you the type of person that looks for something motivate you each day? Well, how about something to motivate your life. Listen to this song….really listen to it. Let is jump start your day, week and maybe even your life.

Lacrae is a Christian rap artists who, in my opinion, puts out some of the most truthful and impactful music out there. You can really hear his feelings, faith and conviction through his words and music. He is one of my favorites.

“Paul said if Christ ain’t resurrect then we waste our lives, well that implies that our life’s built around Jesus being alive…” I have good new for you: JESUS IS ALIVE! That means our lives are not waste, our lives need to be build around Him.

“If you don’t see His ways in my days and nights, you can hit my brakes you can stop my lights, I lost my life.”

He also mentions Luke 12:15-21…Here you go:

15 Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”16 And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. 17He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’18 “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. 19 And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ 21 “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”
