Who are you?
What do you believe?
These are two questions I am continually asking myself, whether consciously or subconsciously. I believe it would be beneficial to society as a whole if we began to ask ourselves these two questions more often.
Your answer to the first question will determine the basis from which you will live. Think about it. Our identity determines our worth, our purpose, and our state of being. It’s what we silently and secretly think about ourselves, as well as what we show to the world every day.
Your answer to the second question will determine wherein lies your hope. Belief isn’t just a state of mind, or a thought process; it’s what will or will not give you hope and reason to grow, love, serve, sacrifice, and change.
You will be hard pressed to find the ability to answer either of these questions apart from the other. And these questions might be scary for some of us. But our hearts and souls yearn for us to know who we are and what we believe.
Who are you and what do you believe?
The world, and your heart, is eagerly awaiting your answer.
You can search within yourself, try to muster up and create your own identity, or morph to fit the culture and the times. You can believe what is popular, or change it as often as you want, or let someone else determine it for you.
But my suggestion is to search diligently for what Jesus says about who you are, whether or not you believe in Him. For if what He claims to be true really is, in fact, true, then your whole life will change.
