The statement, ‘I am…’, can be completed with innumerable descriptions, titles, adjectives etc. Unfortunately, this is not an indication that our sense of identity is right.
To complete the statement I would say, I am…a follower of Jesus Christ.
The following piece is an attempt to describe the identity of a follower of Jesus.
I may be a celebrity:
Or, live my life in obscurity.
But I’m celebrated by God’s angels.
I may own Fortune 500 stocks;
Or, earn so little I can’t save bucks.
Yet I own stocks of immeasurable worth.
I may be heir to a huge bequest;
Or, heir to nothing but family requests
With Christ I’m co-heir, to enduring wealth.
Fame and popularity may be mine;
Or, my description may be ‘everyday man’
What matters is, God knew me before creation.
I may be beloved and fit into the world’s mould;
Or, the tag of ‘world’s most disliked’ I hold.
His love for me is better than life.
How would you complete the statement, ‘I am…?
