Who Am I?

The need for identity is global; it cuts across age, gender and social background. Everybody wants to be somebody!

People naturally crave desire clarity about their inward identity – what sets them apart from the crowd, what makes them awesome, why they are who they are, and the list goes on.

Your Identity, Your Purpose

The simple (not so simple) truth I found out some years ago was that:

your life purpose and its pursuit are tied to the realization of your identity.

This knowledge frees you to live the life God intends for you.

Recently, I spoke to a group of hundred young people at an international conference on the liberating power of knowing your worth and identity. I said to them:

“If you are the child of the KING, how can you feed on crumbs? Why accept the status quo? Why be average?”

I’m throwing the same question your way: “Are you truly, or at least pursuing to become, the best God made you to be?”

Your past failures don’t define you. Your present glory won’t complete you either. There’s more and that MORE lies in you. You can tweet that.

Who You Truly Are

I couldn’t conclude this piece without telling you of One who thinks highly of you. Here’s what He says of you:


You’re ROYAL


You’re HOLY

And you have a purpose to fulfill (1 Pet 2:9)

Knowing this much, how dare you live otherwise?!
