Who’s your favourite person in the Bible and why? Jesus because He was
the only one willing to save my life.
Word by Andrew Porter
When people are shopping for a particular item
they tend to look at the label of the product to
see what the brand name is. Have you ever gone
from rack to rack or aisle to aisle or webpage to
webpage looking for that one name? I have. In
our culture we determine a product’s worth by the
name on its label. Sadly, we have carried this over
in our judgment of people.
We live in a generation where a lot of young
people today are asking the question, Who on
earth am I? We allow so many different voices
to label us and define who we are based on our
appearance, social circle, past, interests and
hobbies, intelligence, where we work, where
we shop, university major, relationship status,
popularity. As a result, people are walking around
feeling insecure in who they are and where they
If you are placing your confidence and trust in
Jesus Christ for your salvation, then according to
Colossians 3: 1-4 you are forever
joined, linked, and chained to
Jesus Christ! Your identity is

But what exactly is your identity

If you have been around the
Church for the past couple of

across the song “Good, Good
Father.” Part of the chorus goes
like this: “And I am loved by you
/ It’s who I am, It’s who I am,
It’s who I am.” I love how that
repeats. We need to hear that
over and over and allow God to
speak that over our lives.
You are free to receive it. You are loved by the
Universe Maker! That’s who you are! You are
unconditionally loved by God for all eternity
despite the sin, the habit, or addiction in your life.
It is who you are. You are a loved, cherished, and
prized son or daughter of God Almighty in Christ
both now and forever!
When you begin to see and embrace who you truly
are, you will find rest, freedom, and security in
the One who defines you. The One who made you
and formed you in your mother’s womb is the
only one who gets to speak the first word and final
word over your life.
And He is saying: “You’re mine! You’re holy!
You’re pure! You’re spotless! I love you!” These are
constant, unchanging truths about who you are.
I am Loved
“You are loved by the
Universe Maker! That’s
who you are! You are
