Complete In Christ Moment: “Who Do Think You Are?”

The reason we care so much about what other people think about us is because of what we think about ourselves. Have you ever asked God to show you what you really think about yourself? Don’t be afraid to ask. After all, only God can reveal the truth to you, and only God can accurately assess and change our opinion about yourself to you. Remember that the truth will set you free (John 8:31-32). When Jesus asked the question, “Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?” (Matt 16:15 KJV), He was not angry, frustrated or hurt by the responses of those who thought He was John the Baptist, Elijah or Jeremiah. Jesus was certain about His own identity and purpose (see Matt 3:17, Matt 17:5 and John 13:3-4). When Peter declared, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God” , Jesus knew that Peter had received revelation from God about Him (Matt 16:16-17 KJV). We can walk in that same certainty, dismissing without anger those opinions of others that are not consistent with who we are in Christ. When we know and accept who we are in Christ, we are complete in Him. We can rejoice in knowing that we are acceptable to God and to ourselves, and we can pray for others who reject us, knowing that it is the Christ in us whom they really do not accept (John 15:18-21 KJV).
