Based on your answers, you highly value BELONGING. That’s a big part of where you find your identity.
We often try to figure out who we are based on what others say about us or what we can do.
We feel a sense of belonging or acceptance if we have nice things, if we’re talented, if we have a lot of friends or a boyfriend or girlfriend.
Have you ever wondered if it’s possible for you to belong just because you are you?
God knows EVERYTHING about you. He loves you and He says you belong.
We believe knowing God is how we experience true belonging and acceptance in life.
God says you can be:
But to all who believed Him and accepted Him, He gave the right to become children of God.
I’m no longer calling you servants because servants don’t understand what their master is thinking and planning. No, I’ve named you friends because I’ve let you in on everything I’ve heard from the Father.
Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ.
Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us.
For He has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of His dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness.
Knowing who you are and why you are here changes both the way you live and how you impact the world.
