I Am…

jenoms_musings_i_am

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…?
