There is so much division and dissension in the world today. It’s even found its way into the Church. We have so many ways we can separate ourselves, so many identities and labels to try on in order to define ourselves. But finding our own way and pursuing our own paths has left a trail of emptiness, confusion, and disillusionment.
God calls us to unity. He calls us to love. And He calls us His own.
We are not our vocation. We are not our calling.
We are not defined by our baggage, our circumstances, or our good works.
We are children of God: adopted, anointed, chosen.
We are a royal priesthood: righteous, accepted, and holy.
We are covered by the blood of Jesus.
We are loved.
And no matter the season we find ourselves in, whether in activity or rest, being stretched or being restored, we are instructed to walk with our God.
Wherever we go. However we feel. However we’ve missed the mark.
When we turn to Him, we will always find forgiveness and faithfulness.
The ultimate call of this life is to pursue Jesus, to embrace our identity as His child and run toward Him. We must abide, with eyes on Him, whatever the cost.
We can only find our purpose once we accept our identity.
We are all made in the image of God and the door to the Kingdom is open. All we have to do is step through.
Have you placed your identity in Christ? If not, I’d like to pray with you now:
Father, we draw near to you embracing our inheritance as your daughters. Teach us your ways as we walk through this life with You. Help us to hear your voice. We are listening. Hold us in Your love. Save us with Your grace. And free us to do good works in Your Name. Thank you for rescuing us. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
I’m a wife, mom of two, and lover of Jesus. I believe through Him we are transformed and receive new life, giving us unique purpose.
