Who you say I am

We just started singing this song at my church, and I love it. Here are the lyrics:

“Who am I that the highest King
Would welcome me?
I was lost but He brought me in
Oh His love for me
Oh His love for me

Who the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed
I’m a child of God
Yes I am
In my Father’s house
There’s a place for me
I’m a child of God
Yes I am

Free at last, He has ransomed me
His grace runs deep
While I was a slave to sin
Jesus died for me
Yes He died for me

I am chosen
Not forsaken
I am who You say I am
You are for me
Not against me
I am who You say I am”

I like this song because I think we often believe lies about who we are. We forget what God says about us and what God has spoken over us. So who does God say we are? The Bible says we are chosen, forgiven, blameless, holy, righteous, redeemed, freed, accepted, complete, beloved, co-heir with Christ, child of God, etc. There are so many more ways that people of God are described in the Bible. These are the things we should believe about ourselves, and we should be confident of who we are in Christ.

From there we should realize that our life is not our own, but that we are alive to bring glory to God. God loves us, but He does not say all of this about us so that we can feel more important or so that we can make ourselves bigger than we really are. We were made in God’s image, but we are not God. God is the center of everything, and our lives should revolve around Him. He is the center, not us. That is a good thing to remember.

Much love, B
