Who You Are


Do you know who you are?

Do you know who you are?

You are not your choices.

You are not your ideas.

You are not your accomplishments or your abilities or your accolades.

You are not your career.

You are not your talents or your treasures.

Your inherent worth as a human being doesn’t come from what you do or don’t do, from whom you impress or depress, from your success or your excess.

You are valuable because the God of all that ever was and all that is and all that ever will be knit you together in your mother’s womb. He created you as a reflection of Himself for the pure joy set before Him that He might get to have a relationship with you.

He has loved you with an everlasting love – infinitely backward through all the days history has lost and infinitely forward into all the days the future hides- simply because you are His.

He made you.

He loves you.

And that’s why you’re valuable.

You are not your sin.

You are not your mistakes or misgivings.

You are not your addictions or bad decisions.

You are His.

You are distinctly separate from all of these things. Your worth is independent of your performance, your feelings, your failings.

You are precious and honored in God’s sight, His lavishly loved child.

That’s who you are.

  1. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? (20) For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
