Recently, while attending a Bible study titled Anointed, Transformed, Redeemed (by Priscilla Shirer, Beth Moore, and Kay Arthur), I was struck by this soliloquy, delivered by Shirer (who happens to be Tony Evans’ daughter and clearly received some pass-along of his dynamic personality and preaching/teaching giftings).
Take a look and a listen.
Who are you in Christ?
I agree, Priscilla Shirer. This is worth getting fired up about. And we are not alone there.
Joyce Meyer talked about this in her Beauty for Ashes: Receiving Emotional Healing book (among others). Rick Warren discussed it in The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here For? Mark Driscoll aimed at it in Who Do You Think You Are?: Finding Your True Identity in Christ. Henry Blackaby focused on the same biblical principles in his Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God.
Charles Stanley wrote a Bible study guide titled Discovering Your Identity in Christ.
Innumerable pastors and Christian leaders have offered sermons and teachings on the topic of who we are in Christ.
If you are a Christian believer, then your identity in Christ is the bedrock of your daily life.
How might simply knowing to Whom we belong and by Whom we are loved beyond measure can change everything we do … and how we do it?
Thank you, Priscilla Shirer, for the inspiring and encouraging reminder of who God is and who we are by belonging to Him.
