Who Are You?

Who are you? This is a question that is often asked as one is just starting to get to know people. How do you identify yourself primarily? Are you a Christian? A college student? A Starbucks barista? How do you identify yourself?

I read an article today titled ‘Facing the Truth‘ that encourages one to view themselves as they truly are: fallen and in need of a Savior. It says:

But you see, the story we tell ourselves is skewed. There comes a time when we need to sit and take account of how we’re spending our lives, like at the doctor’s office or with the budget, and be reminded that we are not who we think we are. We need Jesus more than we allow ourselves to admit.

“We are not who we think we are.” So many people refuse to admit that they are fallen and daily in need of a Savior. In the hours I’ve been awake today, I have sinned more times than I can count and am worthy of eternal damnation. But thanks be to God that I have a Savior who took the penalty for me and continues to extend grace to me.

Do you realize your need for a Savior on a daily basis? Are there things in your life that you need to let go in order to better realize that need? And if you’re not a believer, what is keeping you from putting your complete trust in Jesus? You will not realize how great your Savior is until you realize how great of a sinner you are.
