The Real ID

The Watered Soul: The Real ID

The Real ID

badge-1 Peter 2-10

1 Peter 2:10 Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people. Once you received no mercy; now you have received God’s mercy. (NLT)

 

Ask the question, who are you, and you are likely to hear a myriad of responses ranging from a person’s family role to their job title.  Yet those pale in comparison to being identified as one of God’s people. I like The Message version of that verse which says, from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted.

Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving

There is no better answer than I am a child of God and His work in progress. It is not all about me. Praise God.

What a beautiful verse, my identity comes not from the degree i finished nor the place i stay nor the things i own, my identity is in Jesus alone. Thank you for sharing this.

Blessings!

This is a very timely word. Too many leave the families and friends after Thanksgiving celebrations feeling "less than" instead of more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. It is important to know our real identity.

I love the way you did the picture. To a person that has to wear a name time this is really neat. Think I'll print it out and wear it on the back side of my tag.

Amen! How true!

So thankful that I am His!

Giving thanks that the Lord has accepted me and blessed me. I like "from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted." How often do we feel rejected in this world. So wonderful to know that there's acceptance in the Lord through Christ's sacrifice for us.

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving,
Janis
