Reread Romans 1: 1
In the opening sentences of Romans 1 Paul has no qualms defining who he is (a servant of Jesus Christ), his calling (an Apostle of Jesus) and his purpose (to be set apart for the sake of the Gospel). Paul is confident in who he is in Christ.
How do you respond when someone asks, “Who are you?” Many people respond with the obvious of stating their name. Some may respond by stating their occupation, marital status, or some things they enjoy in life. However the question is not, “What is your name, what do you do for a living or what do you like?” Instead it is who are you? If you are a follower of Jesus Christ may I offer some suggestions?
WHO ARE YOU?
This list is a clear and biblical (not necessarily complete) view of who you are in Christ. Man has not defined this for you but God has. As believers we ought to have the same view of ourselves and others as God views us . When we start seeing each other in ways God sees us then we will start treating one another differently. We will speak kindly of one another, we will serve one another in love; we will respect and value other individuals as a whole.
