How to find Identity in Christ

I have good news and bad new.

The bad news is – nothing in this world is going to give you the answer. Family, jobs, love will always lead to a mind of questions. I had success in all 3 and still wondered who I was.

The good news is we have a source who knows everything about us. Past present and future is in the palm of his hands. Your identity will be given if you just follow his son.

 

Here are a few tips to create an identity in Christ.

  1. Connect with the father: prayer and the bible are both great starts.
  2. Keep a journal. Write the highs and the lows. Writing it out will help you keep track on how far you’ve come. Keeping a journal will also let you see areas that may need improvement.
  3. Build relationships : join a Christian community – finding a place that encourages you to grow will build your confidence
  4. Try. If you see something you’re interested in – give it a try. There is no harm in seeing if you like a small group or volunteer work. Keep trying stuff until you find your thing.
  5. Consistency : being a Christian is a lifestyle change. Make room for your relationship with Jesus.

“This is too much work! I can’t do all of this.”

Well concerned reader here is a thought:

It’s a marathon not a sprint. It may take you 1 day, 1 year, 10 years to do these 5. All God wants is a mustard seed of faith – and he will handle the rest.

So if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. Colossians 3:1-3
