Life can be boiled down to answering three very important questions:
1-Who am I?
2-Why am I here?
3-Where am I going?
For the next three blog posts, we're going to take a look at each of these questions. Today we'll start with Who am I?
Do you know who you are? I don't mean your name, what family you live in, what school you attend. I mean, Do you know who you REALLY are?
This is the first life question that each of us must answer. But where do we find the answer to this question?
Psalm 139 is a great starting point. Let's take a look at verses 13-16:
For You created my inmost being;
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

2-You are "fearfully and wonderfully made" (v. 14). Fearfully here means awesomely. You are awesome!
3-You were made for a purpose. All the days of your life were planned ahead of time (v. 16).
The Gospel of John, chapter 1, verse 12 gives more insight as to who you really are. When you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, you became a son of God.
So, to put it all in one sentence, you are an awesome son of God, created by Him for a great purpose.
The world will try to tell you that you got here by chance, that you are nothing more than an accident. This is a lie spawned by Darwinian evolutionism.
The truth is that you are not here by chance. God wanted you and created you with a great purpose. As you seek Him, He will reveal that purpose to you, and you will find great fulfillment and joy in living it.
