When You Aren’t Sure Who You Are.

Mar 20, 2017

“For unless you believe that I am, you will die in your sins.”

John 8:24

 In a world redefining and reshaping, how do you know? How do you know who/what you are? What you’re meant to be?

But really what we should be asking is….who is He?

ἐγώ εἶμι,” He said. I Am.

These words determine your forever. There is death in the lies and the lusts of this world and the denial of two words will send you into a self-sentenced death. Your response to these words will give life or take it.

The woman in adultery. She was caught and dragged. Her sins in the middle turned into shame.

With one word, “Lord” she called him “I Am.” She redefined herself in the defining of Him. (John 8:11)

“Σὺ τίς εἶ” Who are you?  They asked the Son of Man.

(John 8:25)

Humanhood is defined by our definition of Him. Who we say He is, is who we say we are. 

Son of man. The Savior and the one sharing flesh. There is death in the sin, but life in the loosing. 

The answer is in the making room. To loose your life open wide so that He may step inside.

“Yet you seek to kill me because my words finds no place in you.” (John 8:37)

There is freedom in life surrendered. When it’s not your own, you have nothing to lose.

To let Him find room in you. That’s who you are. You’re a life given vessel. You’re free.

It’s the age old truth – when you lose life, He finds you.

There is life in “I Am” because we are not. 

To take back the Israelite life and make life an offering of loosing. This is freedom and where life lies. A life given to make all things pleasing to him (John 8:29). 

You’re a life lost and freedom found soul. You are who you say He is and He says “I Love You.”

“Who are you?” … They did not understand that they had been speaking to them about the Father. So Jesus said to them, “When you have ulifted up the Son of Man, vthen you will know that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own authority, but speak just as the Father taught me.  And he who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone,

 for I always do the things that are pleasing to him.”  

John 8:27-30
