Importance of Identity and Purpose

Hello guys, it’s Richmond and I’m back with another blog! Today, we will be talking about the importance of our identity and purpose in Christ. To start, what is our purpose and identity in Christ? Well, to recieve our new identities in Christ, we first have to believe that God sent His son down to die for us so that we could be forgiven of all sin. From that point on, we are given a new identity. 2 Corinthians 5:17 tells us, “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” Because we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and personal savior, our whole lives have changed. We are no longer the old person that we once were. Instead, we are born again in Christ. This comes with a task, however. Now that we have been born, the purpose we have been given is to go out and bring even more people to know of God’s love. Ezekiel 3:18-19 says, “When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin but you will have saved yourself!” This is where we can see the importance of our purpose. There are literal lives at stake. We have been tasked with spreading the good news, and if we fail to do that, then people will suffer, and we will be held accountable. But at the end of the day, it’s all about if we are actively trying to spread the Word. There is only so much we can do when trying to spread the love of God to others. After we have done our jobs, it is up to them to be willing to accept this great gift. Now after reading all this, I know you may be thinking, it’s easier said than done to have the boldness needed to spread the Word of God. You may lose friends, or even face judgement from others, but Acts 4:29 tells us that God will enable His servants to speak with great boldness. So, even if we cannot find the boldness within ourselves at the moment, God will surely pull it out of us. To conclude, as Christians, one thing we have to understand is how important our purpose and identity in Christ is. If we do not seek God and find our identity and purpose, we cannot really say that we’re working to better His kingdom. Although this may be easier said than done, God will equip us with everything we need to make winning souls for Him possible.
