Who do men say I am? Matthew 16:13-20 Jesus Christ asked this question of his disciples. The reason why Jesus asked this question I don’t know really!
What I do know is that if you and I do not know who we are, what we are about, our values, beliefs, and all, people, events, situations, circumstances, and all in the world will tell us what we are not!
You do not want that! Do you? I guess as much. Why don’t you start studying the scriptures? Who, what, your how, and when is all written in the Bible.
Make the Bible a priority! Read and meditate in it!
Stay on Psalm 139:14 a little bit. Can you wrap your mind around the fact that “You are fearfully and wonderfully made”? That marvellous are God’s work? Does your soul know this?
Know yourself friends and your enemies will never be able to label you as what you are not!
Surprisingly, God created you and I! He said we are good! He also sent His son to redeem US when we got dirty! We both needed the cleansing blood of The Lamb. WE ALL DO!
You see now, your hating me means you hate yourself!😀 And my hate of you is a reflection of the dislike I have for myself! That’s it!
Let’s start loving ourselves as much as God loves us and we both will see the transforming effect of the power of the blood shed on Calvary’s Tree.
God loves me, I love myself, therefore, I love you! It’s that simple!
“Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:26-27 NIV
