I Am Who You Say I Am posted by John Sorensen on Apr 01, 2019

“I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I’m not enough.

Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up,

Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low?

Remind me once again just who I am, because I need to know…”

I’m sure that if you have listened to Christian radio anytime in the last year, you’ve heard the words to this song by Lauren Daigle (Lauren Daigle, Paul Mabury and Jason Ingram, 2018). It’s become sort of an anthem in 2018 and 2019. Well, why is that? Why must we be reminded of who we are? The song goes on to say…”The only thing that matters now is everything You think of me. In You I find my worth, in You I find my identity.”

I’d say that because all too often our focus is not on Jesus, but rather on making ourselves look and feel better to those looking at us from the outside, we lose sight of who we were made to be in Christ! If we would fix our eyes on Him, we could stop trying so hard to impress everyone around us.

The Apostle Paul says this in Galatians, “Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.”

Take a look at your life – who are you trying to impress? If it’s anyone other than the Lord, you need to reevaluate and ask yourself why you’re valuing man’s opinions above God’s.

Like anything worth doing, it will take time to readjust and fix your gaze on Christ, but with time in the Word, in prayer and in fellowship with other believers, you’ll see, and believe your true worth, found only in Jesus!

This is our focus this week at Evangelism Explosion through our social media channels and our daily broadcast. Visit ShareLife.Today for free Gospel tracts that will help you share your faith so others can find their identity in Christ, as well.

May God richly bless you this week as you listen to the one voice that truly matters!

This is a transcript from Conversations with John #35
