Do you know
who you are?
THE WORLD IS LISTENING…!
What Is the Source of the Text: Anonymous. Many variations of the aforestated text, some of which are bell-shaped but most of which are not, have been published in several well-known books and websites.
Each of the above statements ( I Know Who I am) is true about US only if, by repentance and faith, we have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as our Redeemer and Ruler, putting our faith in HIM through the completion of His work of atonement on the cross and His resurrection from the dead.
We need to ring this bell (I know who I am) daily and let it be the platform we stand on. The sound of the bell will remind us that we have been redeemed by Jesus. It will help us recall that God is our strength and nourishment. The sound of the bell (I know who I am) will inspire us to face any scenario that comes our way with the power of the Holy Spirit.
The Three Important Questions We Ask Ourselves (I Know Who I Am Answers)
The three important questions we ask ourselves when we reach adolescence are (1) “Who Am I?” (2) “Why Am I on this Earth?” and (3) “What is the purpose of my life?”
If the answers to these questions are substantially grounded on egoism, we can know that they are fueled by haughtiness, anxiety, and fear. However, if they predominantly concentrate on recognizing, honoring, and exalting the Almighty Father, the answers are driven by boldness and modesty.
The answer to the first question, “Who Am I?” is that we are a special creation fashioned in God’s likeness, a splendor that even angels do not possess. According to 1 Peter 2:9, we are royal priests and chosen individuals who share in the divine nature (2 Peter 1:4). We have been resurrected to live a new life (Romans 6:4), are free from condemnation (Romans 8:1), have been reconciled to God (2 Corinthians 5:18), are God’s workmanship (Ephesians 2:10), and are citizens of heaven (Philippians 3:20).
The answer to the second question, “Why Am I on this Earth?” is that we need to worship the Holy Triune God, get to know Him personally, and help others to know Him. This is only possible if we accept Jesus as our Savior. We need to understand that as God’s Prime Creation, we have to act as His representative on this beautiful Earth. We need to overcome the temptations that surround us with the blood of Jesus Christ, that He shed on the cross. We should understand that we belong only to God, and He is our master and arbitrator.
The answer to the third question, “What is the purpose of my life?” is that just as we restored our personal relationship with God by having faith in Jesus Christ, so can others be made right with our Creator as God uses us to communicate the message of reconciliation with them. This is the reason we must demonstrate the love of Christ to humanity. True restoration of our relationship with God happens through confessing our transgressions to Him and obtaining His pardon (Isaiah 12:2).
Our mission on this planet is to love God and then spread that love to others so they might know Him. God wants us to love others so that we can become a testimony to the Holy Father’s amazing grace, goodness, and compassion.
How Can We Be Saved and Become Children of God?
The great news of salvation is that the Almighty One passionately loves us and sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins. Without the sacrifice of the Redeemer of the World, Yeshua, we are blind and lost (2 Corinthians 4:3, 4). We need to understand that we cannot atone for our sins by performing good deeds. We can be saved only by confessing our sins and believing in the restoring power of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who suffered and died on the cross and rose again on the third day to ascend into heaven and sit in glory and rule at the right hand of the Almighty Father.
When we believe in the One who justifies the ungodly, God declares, “his faith is counted for righteousness” (Romans 4:5). We should accept that Jesus is the only way to the Supreme Being and believe in Him to be saved (Acts 16:31).
Generally, our internal (private) and external (public) lives are entirely different. We act in front of others to gain their respect. However, God knows our true selves. We cannot cheat the Almighty, and hence we need to align our personal and social lives in line with the commandments of God. Sometimes we disobey God, however, He is compassionate to forgive our sins and accept us as His children.
We can become the children of God if we believe that Jesus is the long-awaited Messiah and that He came to planet Earth to pay our debt of sin, which we had incurred due to our disobedience. We need to surrender our lives to Jesus, who is our Creator and Owner. If we do this daily, we are born of God. Our Loving Heavenly Father is waiting with open arms to give salvation to everyone who seeks Him and loves Him with all their heart, mind, soul, and strength.
