Who Am I?

What is mankind that you are mindful of them,
    human beings that you care for them? You have made them a little lower than the angel
    and crowned them with glory and honor. You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet:

Psalm 8:4-6 NIV

Why did God choose me? Why did God choose you? Why does God even care? What am I talking about? I’m speaking of the fact that we even exist. Someone had to literally choose for us to be conceived, or else we wouldn’t have even been a thought. We don’t exist just because our mothers decided to birth us. God was intentional when He strengthened us to enter into existence. What am I talking about now? God told the prophet, Jeremiah,

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

Jeremiah 1:5

Life

Scientists say about 300 million sperm cells race to an egg, competing for existence. The one that is able to penetrate the egg first will grow into a baby and live while the other 299,999,999 die. You were hand-picked by God to be who you are before you were in your mother’s womb. The fact that we exist is a miracle that we didn’t earn.

Forget about blessings, salvation, and eternal life for a second. Do you really know who you are? God loved us over all the other people that could’ve taken our place at conception. To be alive is the first gift God gave you and this is how you can know without a shadow of a doubt that He has a purpose for your life.

Can’t you see it?

There is nobody that’s alive today that God doesn’t want. God wants you and He loves you even when other people don’t. Not only that but Jesus was born into this world, so that we could live forever with God, in heaven.

You are not a waste of life! You are never too far gone as long as you’re alive. You need to stand up and be who God has created you to be. You have hit the jackpot of life, so don’t waste it! Make up your mind today to live for a reason. God is calling you to your purpose! Answer the call!

The New Life

God wants to show you who you are. The Bible tells us that the only identity that will last is found in Jesus Christ. When you are filled with the knowledge of Jesus Christ, then you’ll really know who you are. My invitation to you today is to know Jesus, by turning away from sin and receiving Him as your Lord and Savior. This is the way to true life – to be born again. The Bible says,

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!

2 Corinthians 5:17

God wants to give you that new life today if you will receive it. Say the prayer below to God and really mean it in your heart. Then you will find purpose and meaning in this life, and eternal life after death.

Salvation Plan

Today, if you have not received Salvation or you would like to rededicate your life back to Christ, say this prayer:

God, I know that I am a sinner. Right now, Lord, I turn from my sins and I ask you to forgive me. Jesus, I believe that you died on the cross and rose from the grave, for me. I open my heart and life for You to come in, and I receive You as my Lord and Savior. Thank You, God for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Read the Book of John in the Bible. Find out who Christ is, and how He loves you, yes you!
