Have you ever found yourself in the middle of an identity crisis? Perhaps you have a friend or family member that has experienced his or her own crisis concerning identity. The truth is that knowing who you are matters. Even in the world of psychology, knowing yourself is a crucial part of finding purpose, success, and happiness in life. From a Christian standpoint, knowing who you are involves understanding who God created you to be. Because in the end, a person cannot truly “find themselves” until they have found themselves in Christ. And God will often allow circumstances in your life that will challenge your identity in order that you may fully find yourself in Him.

Beginning in October, I will once again be taking part in the Write 31 Days challenge. Bloggers from every niche take part in this 31-day writing challenge each year. In previous years, I have written about renewing your mind and abiding in God’s peace. This year, I plan to focus on our identity in Christ. And I couldn’t be more excited!
Here are just a few of the things we will be covering:
Learning to distinguish the truth from the lies.
The enemy loves to lie to us concerning our identity in Christ because he knows just how important it is that we know the truth. And the best way to recognize his lies is to know the truth well!
Learning to recognize and listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit in your day-to-day life.
The Bible tells us that it is the Holy Spirit inside of us that confirms our identity as a child of God. He trains us and leads us as we learn to walk in who God created us to be.
Understanding your role in the family of God.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are a child of God. And not only a child, but a co-heir with Christ. Do you understand fully and completely what that means? Throughout this series, we will be learning and growing in who we are, not only as God’s children but also as fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.
Realizing who you are in Christ and learning to walk in that truth.
The Bible has a lot to say about who you are as God’s child. But it’s not enough to know the truth. We have to know what to do with it. What should our day-to-day lives look like as His children? How should it affect our relationships, our decisions, and our prayers?
Discovering your true purpose in life.
Knowing who you are is crucial to discovering meaning in your life. This is one of the reasons why so many people strive to “find themselves.” True purpose and meaning come from walking in your God-given destiny.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. – Ephesians 2:10
Will you allow the Holy Spirit to challenge your identity as you grow in Him?
Join me in the month of October as we devote 31 days to discovering not only who we are in Christ, but also how to walk in that identity each and every day of our lives.
