Understanding our identity is crucial to fulfilling our destiny.
Our identity is tied to Jesus Christ as the Son of God; Jesus is not simply the latest and greatest savior. He is not simply another choice on the spiritual buffet; you can’t say, I will take a little bit of Jesus, a little bit of astrology, a little slice of Buddhism and a sampling of New Age Philosophy and that will get me to God. No Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus would later tell his disciples “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
The disciples would carry on the same thought in the book of Acts when they told the religious leaders, Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.
While it is important to remember who we are; it just as important to remember what we are to do. Jesus does not just call us to recognize him or to know him intellectually. Jesus expects us to do something with the knowledge of him.
