17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
1 Corinthians 12:27
Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
Does it matter more who you are or what you are? Who and what are you? Before you say your name with a proud smile, I am not asking your name. I am asking who and what you are. I am asking who you are. Think of it like this. People asked who is this man named Jesus? God said this is my son who I am well pleased. Who was Jesus? He was a carpenter. What was Jesus? He was the son of God and the messiah. So which matters more? Well you can be whoever you want to be, but what you had better be is a child of God saved by Jesus Christ. You see, your name is who you are. You can wear it proud to the point it consumes you. It does not matter who I am. My name means nothing. What I am is a child of God. I am saved by the blood of Christ. So stop boasting of who you are and start proclaiming what you are. I pray that you are a child of God.
