Who Are You?...

Who are you?

Is a pretty broad question with a lot of different answers depending on your perspective or how you interpret the question. In order for you to answer this question properly we need to narrow down what the question itself is actually asking.

Lets start with this;

1. Have you accepted Jesus in your life as your personal Savior?

If you answered yes than skip to question two. If you answered no then click on the image below to find out more about accepting the free gift of faith in Jesus Christ, that God the Father gives free to every person on the planet.

The Way of the Master

2. If you answered yes then consider what Ephesians 4:11 says;

It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers.

Lets take a look at what these gifts are;

Apostle - Those who have the spirit of apostleship in extending the work of Jesus Christ and His commission to spread the gospel to the ends of the earth.

Prophet - A spiritually mature person that proclaims a special divinely focused message to the body of Christ and the world.

Evangelist - A special gift for preaching the gospel or witnessing to unbelievers the saving faith of Jesus Christ.

Pastor/Teacher - A special gift for teaching, nurturing and helping others in practicing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

You could be one or you could be all, so who are you?

who are you do you know? why are you complaining...those who complain usually are doing nothing but griping. The bible tells us not to gripe. Ask God who you are and to let you see you as He sees you. Having you given your life to Christ and allow Him to mold you into His image? Are you free from this world or are you trapped in your own world? Bible says you are part of this world but not of this world if you believe in Jesus Christ. Are you transformed in the grace and mercy of the Cross? Are you a new creation in Christ? Are you a child of the Most High? Why not be a person who seeks to be Truth protector not a truth basher. Can you show grace to those who are not in the same place as you. Are you refreshed in the Blood of the Lamb.
Do you eat the whole elephant at once or do you take one bite at a time? What are you doing for the Kingdom is the question that should be asked of all believers? What steps are we doing to walk humbly and boldly for our Lord? Are we making disciples or just persecuting those who are? Are we as believers so busy looking for planks in the body to miss changing our specks? We need to be careful how we judge and let the Lord, do that but encourage one another in love. So brother know that the body loves you and though I sense a bitter tone in you heart may the God we love and serve give you peace, hope and joy! Trust Brother! Release it Brother!

Consider Ephesians 4:13-15;

Till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—

Whom my friend anonymous is judging whom?

I don't know which category I would fall into, but I agree that "Know thyself" is a key question for all of us.
