A Journey to Self-Discovery

In a world constantly bombarding us with messages about who we should be it’s important to understand our true identity first. For believers in Jesus, this journey of self-discovery is deeply rooted in understanding our identity in Christ. Jesus can transform us and give us a new identity. It’s so easy to find our identity in others, some of us spend years wondering who am I?

We are created in God’s image (Genesis 1:27). This means that every individual reflects aspects of God’s character – His love, creativity, wisdom, and goodness. Recognizing that our value comes from being God’s creation allows us to see ourselves and others through a lens of dignity and respect.

When we encounter Jesus, we are given new life. It’s like a do over, a new gift we are given. Understanding our identity in Christ means recognizing that we are redeemed and forgiven. Ephesians 1:7 says, “In Him, we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.” We are not defined by our past mistakes, failures, or successes; we are defined by Christ’s work in us. What a beautiful God we serve. To know people can hold record on us, but Jesus when you come to him and repent, He wipes the slate clean.

We all have a purpose, Ephesians 2:10 explains that we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works. Embracing our identity in Him leads us to live out a life of purpose, serving others, and spreading His love. The world often tries to label us based on our job, social status, race, or background. However, Galatians 3:28 (NIV) reminds us that in Christ, these labels lose their power: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Our identity in Christ transcends worldly labels, uniting us in His love and grace.

This is a lifelong journey, when you walk with God. Our minds should be renewed daily. His truth, meaning his word, should help us grow daily. His word shape us, enlighten us, and change us. If you are in the same predicament as you were a year ago, change hasn’t taken place. Maybe it’s time. Sometimes change starts with letting some things go.

Selah, J.
