Who Am I?

‘What is your job?’ ‘What do you do?.On meeting a new acquaintance these are the kind of questions that we tend to ask. What we should really be asking is ‘Who are you?’

We are not defined by what we do. We can’t be described by what family we have. The misplaced questions can have various answers – nurse, brick-layer, accountant and mother, son, second cousin three times removed. These answers talk about our jobs and family relationships, not who we are on the inside.

The Bible gives us the best answers; we are beloved by God and we are redeemed. We are not servants but heirs. My identity is hidden in God.
