Based on your answers to the quiz, you highly value having purpose. 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, our appearance or what we have.
When we look for our value in our own abilities or accomplishments, we’re motivated to do things so that we can feel we have worth.
But the truth is you already have worth. God created you to know Him, to love Him and to love others.
When you start a relationship with God through Jesus, your identity is forever changed. He knows you, He sees you, He loves you and accepts you. You don’t have to work or earn those things, because you already have them.
But we don’t always know, or remember, what is true about us.
Because of Jesus, God says you are:
For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him.
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. For those God foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
Jesus came and told His disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other. To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice; to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge. ... All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it.
Not only do you have purpose, but you also belong and are secure and known.
Knowing who you are and why you are here changes both the way you live and how you impact the world.
