Losing Our Identity

2 Corinthians 10:12 We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise. One of the hardest things to do when you are unhappy, bored or disouraged is to not compare your life with someone else's. Some have called it a comparison trap. Oftentimes when we are idle or restless in our own lives, we seem to notice what is going on and into the lives of others. When this happens we lose our own identity. It's not wise to compare yourself to another person or your life to their life.  Don't fall into the trap of comparing yourself to others. You are exactly the way you are supposed to be. Don't let the weakness in you affect the greatness in you. You have been given all that you need to be the success that God desires for you. Settle down and settle in to that best version of you that we all want to see. You are amazing!

Am I a Disciple?

It’s impossible to be a disciple or a follower of someone and not end up like that person. Jesus said, “A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher” (Luke 6: 40). That’s the whole point of being a disciple of Jesus: we imitate Him, carry on His ministry, and become like Him in the process.
Excerpt from Chan, Francis; Beuving, Mark (2012-11-01). Multiply: Disciples Making Disciples (p. 16).

I’d like to think that I am a disciple of Jesus, a Christ follower. Like those that came before me, when I felt the call of the Lord to follow I had no idea where we were going or what I would be doing. I just knew that my life needed saving. God knew that too which was why he sent Jesus to die on a cross and pay for my sins with his life. God loved me that much! Because I believe today that Jesus paid with his life for me, I choose to live my life in honor and service to Him. I follow. So as a disciple, I know that my life should be a reflection of his. Imitate Him, carry on His ministry and become more like Him every day. I should end up like Him!


How about you? Who are you following? All you have to do is look at how you act or speak and you will know:) Follow Jesus. Live a full life.  Become like Him along the way!
